You know that children with autism spectrum disorder play differently from other children. They like to line objects up, play by themselves, and repeat the same actions over and over. They love to roll the car or to complete the numbers puzzle. Our little boys and girls love to play with the toys. Boys prefer to play with cars, and girls enjoys a sensory zone. However, our boys and girls have a difficulty to play together by engaging in the same activity. They like to learn the letters and numbers, and they have the difficulties to share the ABC puzzle or numbers puzzle or to complete the puzzle together. They require a help to increase their social skills. They learn how to share the toy and how to take a turn. Little Daniel wants to play with a truck, and he points to truck and tries to say the word truck by pronouncing only "tr”. David reads a book On the Farm, and teacher supports him to name the farm animals and to recognize them. David talks a lot by using words, and he tries to use two word phrases. We have a new girl in our classroom whose name is Maria, and she likes to play with play dough in a sensory zone. Maria enjoys all fun activities, and she asks to have a bubbles time with her. She likes oral and physical praises, and she is happy to get a hug or hi five. Teachers encourage Maria to use the simple words and sings during her play time or learning time. Maria requires prompting to follow oral directions during her classroom routines. Speech pathologist teaches Maria to use the word hi during a greeting time and to use the peers’ names. Our children love to play with textured balls, and it is a time to teach them to play cooperatively by sharing the balls. Children prefer to get a reward/snack after play time. They know they can get a cookie or fruit snack when they play nicely and use the words“please” and “thank you” or signs “please” and “thank you”. These two words we would like to address to all our supporters.
