Overview

If your son or daughter is over-stimulated by noisy places or has trouble communicating or interacting with people, then everyday activities like going to the playground or helping out with household chores may seem outside your child’s repertoire. Authors Bondy and Frost, the founders of the award-winning Pyramid Approach to educating children with autism, show how it is possible to keep family life running smoothly and teach a child with autism to participate in important and routine family activities at home and in the neighborhood. And their teaching strategies can be used during the course of everyday life without making too many adjustments or converting your home into a school.

In a reassuring, easy-to-read style, Autism 24/7 encourages parents to pinpoint times when their child’s behavior or lack of skills seems to interfere with family functioning. This step helps identify what to teach your child and what goals to set. Other issues related to "What to Teach" include:

- Motivational Strategies and Powerful Reinforcements: Using naturally occurring rewards and token systems .
- Teaching Functional Communication Skills: The difference between imitation, responding, and initiating communication, as well as how to resolve different types of communication challenges.
- Creating Opportunities for Learning: Determining the steps to teach a particular skill and a routine where you can incorporate teaching the desired skill.

Issues related to "How to Teach" include:
- Teaching Techniques: How to choose prompts (verbal, visual, physical, gestural) and how to eliminate them; shaping (rewarding gradual improvement); and video modeling.
- Managing Challenging Behavior: Knowing when to teach a new behavior versus when to change the environment.
- Evaluating What You’re Doing: How to measure progress and collect data.

Autism 24/7 gives families confidence and concrete tools to integrate their child with autism into life at home and in their community as much as possible.
