This is how to help children with autism and school phobias. BRILLIA: https://discoverbrillia.com CHARTS DOWNLOADS: https://shoptly.com/i/unr School can be a very difficult challenging and confusing place for people on the autism spectrum, This is why I have created this list of things that can definitely help with anyone facing these challenges. Understand what triggers - Create a list of scary vs non-scary tasks or places in the school - Colour subjects on a chart: green = good, red = bad and amber = ok - Create a worry book write down all issues in the book, also try personalise it with their topic of interest. Crate strategies for home use to calm anxiety and relax - This like going for A walk - Building Lego - Or scheduled quiet time in their room where they are safe Communicate with the school directly - Contact the SENco at the school and make the aware of the issues - Find out what has been done so far to accommodate the needs of the child - Consult with the direct line of staff who deal with your child day to day and discuss what strategies they are using - Simply ask your child what support they feel they need Adjustments - You could look at having quiet time during the school day in a quiet room - Using ear defenders outside in the play ground - A later start and early finish time to avoid busy school traffic - Using reward systems to help meet targets (check out my link for charts) - Older students may like to use apps to help with anxiety Home school This may be a choice for some people depending on your level of comfort. Always remember if you are going from home school to mainstream school, include a time of a reintegration period. Prep well. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/theaspieworld/support
