Children with ASD function best with structured daily routines.  Changes happen, but as much advance notice as possible should be given to reduce anxiety and avoid the potential for meltdowns. 

 

Breaks and calming strategies should be incorporated into a daily routine to reduce anxiety and to avoid becoming overwhelmed.  Having the child assist with a list or bucket of preferred calming tools and strategies works best.

 

Just because some children with autism are nonverbal doesn’t mean they can’t hear and understand what is being said to them or around them.

 

Close to half (44%) of children identified with ASD have average to above average intellectual ability. (Baio, J., Wiggins, L., Christensen, D., et al. Prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder Among Children Aged 8 Years. Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network, 11 Sites, United States, 2014. MMWR Surveill Summ 2018;67(No. SS-6):1–23.)
