Helping Children Understand Autism
Autism is a disorder that is difficult for young children to understand, particularly if they have never interacted with someone who is diagnosed with it. How you respond to your child's question makes a significant impact on your child's understanding of this complex disorder as well as his or her acceptance and tolerance of individuals with different abilities. Evading the question or answering it in global generalities will only further confuse your child. Here are some suggestions as you help your child to understand autism.
1. Be honest.
2. Know that every child is different, including those with autism.
3. Put a positive spin on it.
4. Talk to the child's parent.
5. Encourage interactions between the children.
With autism occurring in one in every 110 children, your child is likely to encounter a number of children with autism. Precise explanations, worded positively, will go a long way to ease the fears of your child and promote acceptance for individuals with different abilities.
