Children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) face challenges in their daily lives, but there is no area where this is manifested the most compared to when it comes to their education.
Understanding these challenges is the key to finding them the best possible way they can learn. By getting to the heart of what makes learning different for them than typically developing children, we can make more informed decisions regarding their education.
Thus, as providers of performing arts education in Maitland, Florida, at CAMEN Academy For The Performing Arts ourselves, we are enumerating the ways proving that learning is different for children with ASD.
- Skill development
Children with ASD usually have a slower rate of development than their peers.
- Response and attention
Children with ASD may not know how to respond to their names, smile or wave, or use eye contact or point to interact and communicate without being prompted.
- Emotional cues
Children with ASD may find it difficult to recognize emotions, body language, facial expressions, tone of voice, and, in turn, managing their very own emotions.
- Impulse control and regulation
Children with ASD normally have a hard time paying attention and focusing, controlling their impulses and frustrations, organizing their thoughts, etc.
Children with ASD usually do not know how to ‘read the room’ or see the big picture. One classic example for this is remembering the finer details of a photo but not understanding what it means.
