How Parents can Help and Teach their Children at Home – Video Series
As part of emergency measures to tackle the spread of coronavirus, schools across the globes are to be shut down and children are asked to stay home as much as possible.
It has been an especially challenging time for parents of children with ASD. With the coronavirus forcing the closure of schools and center, children can no longer receive regular therapy and training session and their normal sense of routine has been disrupted. Many of you may be wondering how to ensure they can still learn effectively at home without spending too much additional effort and time.
Here Mr Toby has shared a video series of how parents can help and train their kids at home. We have broken down the sections into communication ideas and technique, play and leisure, and chores and daily routines.
1. Spontaneous Communication – Ideas
To improve your child to speak spontaneously, you can create opportunities for your child to initiate communication using a technique called “Communication Temptations”.
Communication Temptations means just what the wording suggests: we set up the environment to tempt children to communicate with us.
In this section, Mr. Toby will share with us how we can train up our child’s communication skills at home in our daily activities, like meal time, bathing time, play time and dressing time.
