How to Teach Life Skills to Kids with Autism or Asperger’s
In the real world, people on the autism spectrum need the same kinds of day-to-day skills everyone else needs to be functional. No matter how high-functioning children with autism or Asperger’s may be or may become, they function better as adults if they’ve had the chance to learn basic skills such as being on time or good personal hygiene. Many reach adulthood without those skills.
Enter Jennifer McIlwee Myers, Aspie at Large. Jennifer’s personal experience with Asperger’s Syndrome and having a brother with autism makes her perspective doubly insightful. From basic skills such as domestic chores, dressing for success, and being polite, to abstract concepts like time management and task-switching, Jennifer’s straightforward and humorous delivery will keep parents, teachers, and therapists turning the page for the next creative solution.
