Working with autistic children is both a joy and a challenging one. It is because autistic children struggle with both communication and social interaction. Teaching them thus requires skills that go beyond the acquired educations.
Patience is a crucial skill required for teaching children with autism. Repetitions, gentle prompting, learning new behaviors are all a part of the daily classroom. In addition, teachers must be persistent and should work to raise skills gradually. Teachers must know their innate and savant skills so that they can develop it into more talents.
Teachers must be capable enough to identify the communication intentions and needs of an autistic and should handle it without a struggle. They should keep good communication not only with students but with the parents of the concerned child.
A teacher helping an autistic child provides them with life skills like eating and thus must be capable to evaluate the task and break it into component parts. Moreover, teachers must be creative enough to invent methods that help autistic children to mater their skills required by the curriculum plan.
