Challenges for students with asd

Challenges for students with ASD

  • Little interest in objects of people

  • May not play simple interaction games

  • May not laugh or smile in response to positive statements

  • Limited interest in social speech, imitation, and joint attention

  • Lack of social function or understanding of social cues


Socialization and academic progress

Socialization and Academic Progress

  • Social communication and academic progress are inherently linked

  • We learn by observing others and through witnessing the outcomes of those behaviors

Eye contact

Eye contact

  • Gather information

  • Indicate interests and emotions

  • The intent of others can be very confusing


Active social engagement

Why?

  • Attention has been drawn elsewhere

  • Anxiety related to the expectations of the classroom at the moment

  • Sensory input needs (hypo or hyper)

  • Delay in cognitive processing necessary to comprehend or retain information

Levelance (in pairs)


Joint attention

Joint attention

  • Attending to the interest of others

  • This can be extremely difficult.

  • Some students are not interested in engaging with others, their objects, or situations.

  • An inability to process via eye gaze, theory of mind, or other means can exacerbate joint attention miscues.

  • Simon Says


Central coherence

Central Coherence

  • Central Coherence Theory

    • Focus on the local rather than the global aspects of an object of interest


Theory of mind

Theory of mind

  • Trouble predicting actions, intent by assuming beliefs or state of mind
