It also helps me remember to show him patience and respect when challenges come up. Looking at this list this morning, I realized what a great list it is for supporting anyone on the spectrum.Support Steps

    The only thing I might look at is the humor and double words. rather than avoid, I would say be cognizant. And look for the teachable moment that it creates.

    where these things come naturally to most of us, autistic kids need to learn them and practice them to develop the skill.
