When a child with ASD is home for a long weekend, a holiday, or other reasons, keeping him/her engaged can be a challenge. Parents often report their frustrations from seeing their child play in the same way over and over again, engage in high rates of stereotypic behavior, or just stare out the window all day. There is no doubt that extended periods without structured activities can be difficult. However, there are steps parents can take to minimize the problems, and make their children more productive during these stressful times.
During this talk, strategies will be shared for how to increase your child’s productivity and engagement at home. It covers the aspects of independent play, social play, chores, etc., which parents, caregivers or even professionals could get benefit from:
- Incorporating preferred sensory actions into activities that build fine and gross motor skills.
- Utilize the natural environment to create social opportunities.
- How to generate identify appropriate tasks/activities.
