Kids learn the most from watching others. They learn facial expressions, tones, sounds, speech, emotion etc.
Our kiddos with autism have a harder time paying attention to all the details from people. This makes it harder for them to learn from others.
A child with autism can become fascinated with an object or toy and miss out on essential learning opportunities that adults and other children can provide.
For parents, learning how to be interesting enough to get a child’s attention is a skill that takes can be learned.
This is why I am so excited to be talking about ESDM. That stands for Early Start Denver Model. Its a type of therapy that parents can use to get the most out of their children so kids can thrive and learn and grow.
Today we are starting the first lesson which teaches us how to get our child’s attention.
This is the first of a series which teaches parents how to engage with your child to encourage, speech and language, social skills and communication.
This training is something the Zach and I learned when Remy was first diagnosed with autism and I believe that every single autism parent could benefit greatly from this training.
We are going through a book called “An Early Start For Your Child With Autism”
I highly suggest you buy it to follow along as well as get SO much more of the training.
Find me on social and let me know what you thought of the episode. I would love input and feedback, suggestions, tips, comments. YOUR advice is how I can make the show better and more valuable.
Thank you for listening.
