Autism ....

I am no Autism expert really. I don't have autistic children. I work with them. Many moons ago there was one autistic child who I was working with one to one. I worked the morning session. Now this child was very clever as autistic children are but  was very clever  and a bit naughty really. No throwing stuff around etc but in the minipulation  of the adults around them they were very very clever . The child played me up so I told them no reward, to which they  told me it didn't matter as they  would get their reward in the afternoon as it was a new session. So autistic  children are normal they can be naughty , and naughty for a reason just like a 'normal' child.

  1. I can certainly relate to this. My son is incredibly manipulative. I remember when he was younger he used to deliberately distract me as we were about to leave the house for school so that he could sneak a toy into his pocket even though he knew he wasn't allowed to take them into the classroom.

  3. I have a great-nephew who has autism. His mum does all sorts of things to keep him occupied though saying that, he naturally keeps himself busy as you can imagine. He can be a handful at times and on the odd occasion will run around turning all the light switches on and off but if you treat him as a normal child he responds in kind.
    Basically, he's a little charmer :-)

  5. I often think I have Autistic tendancies. It makes engaging with people very difficult

  6. My eldest 2 boys are on the autistic spectrum so I can relate to this too. Both are very clever, but so naughty sometimes & normal ways of thinking just don't apply!
