Does your child have autism or a related disability? Does he struggle to communicate his basic wants and needs? Here’s a simple way to help your child communicate!
- Take photographs of all your child’s favorite things, like toys and food items.
- Hold up two photos at a time, and encourage your child to point to the one he wants.
- Make sure you tell him the names of the items to remind him in the future.
- When he makes a choice, immediately offer him that item to reinforce his attempt to communicate.
It's a great communication exercise that also can be fun!
