Autism Spectrum Disorder Basics
Children with autism spectrum disorder are characterized by a combination of two unusual kinds of behaviors: deficits in communication and social skills, and restricted or repetitive behaviors. These symptoms may vary greatly in severity. Social communication and social interaction: Signs of social deficits you might notice in a developing child include aversion to displays of affection like cuddling and hugging and a preference for solitary play. In younger kids, say under 3, failure to respond to their own name is a red flag, as is disinterest in giving, sharing, or showing objects of interest. In older children, warning signs include difficulty carrying on a reciprocal conversation, lack of eye contact, and difficulty using and reading body language. These children may have difficulty recognizing others’ emotions, responding appropriately to different social situations, and understanding social relationships.

Before trying a new tool or product, consider how you can provide individualized supports and accommodations for the products you are already using and that students are familiar with. Chunking directions into smaller steps or providing sentence starters could be simple ways to support students without introducing a new tool.
