Coping and strategies for parents of children with high functioning Autism and echolalia
Coping strategies and (hopefully) helpful hints on the daily battles of having a child that is autistic and also dealing with echolalia
I have a 3 year old who is a high functioning Autistic (awesome) boy who also has echolalia. I am qualified in disability services and have also completed ABA therapy (Applied Behaviour Analysis) with Autism specialization. I struggled for a while with finding ways to cope with the lack of communication my son can exhibit and have found many parents in a similar situation. This tutorial aims to help others who may be searching for alternative ideas or just to know that they are not alone in this battle. I plan to run through what problem behaviors are the biggest struggles and ways to cope and assist any child and yourself in increasing the communication and knowledge which can be applied to most scenarios so everyone can progress to a better understanding in a way that can benefit all.
