The curriculum also includes device programming (how and what), maintenance (quick fixes) and effective use in the home for parents. Clients must commit to a minimum of 3 months.

When should my child start preschool?

Each child with ASD is unique but for most cases, it is recommended to begin preschool at age 3. In general, earlier intervention is associated with better intervention outcomes. Getting your child enrolled in a preschool program as soon as possible provides more opportunities for him or her to develop communication, social skills, pre-academic skills, and other important life skills. An early start to preschool also allows your child time to learn the expectations for an educational environment. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to work with the child’s educational team to determine the most appropriate supports that will allow your child to learn and succeed in the educational environment.

What should I look for in a preschool setting?

Children with ASD tend to do best in a structured and well-organized preschool setting where the development of social and communication skills can be fostered. Classrooms for preschool-age children with ASD should offer structure, consistency and routine, and use an individualized approach. Some children require a low student-to-teacher ratio to allow for more frequent interaction with instructors, while others benefit from spending most or all of the day in a general education setting. Appropriate supports, such as visual schedules and other visual supports, and explicit instruction in new skills are appropriate for nearly all young learners with ASD. Opportunities to practice skills in natural settings (that is, outside of the special education classroom) and facilitation of social relationships in structured and supervised activities are strongly recommended.

What are some important life skills to teach at this age?

During the preschool years, it is important for interventions to focus on communication, imitation, joint attention, pre-academic skills, play, turn taking, social interaction, behavioral flexibility, following directions, and self-care and adaptive behavior skills such as feeding and dressing.

What’s the best way to teach new skills?

It is important that young children with ASD learn and practice new skills across settings including alone with an adult, in integrated preschool settings (when appropriate), and in everyday family routines. It is important to balance individual teaching with opportunities to practice the new skills in more integrated, natural settings. Adults can help make sure that skills transfer to new settings by identifying specific objectives for various time periods throughout a child’s day (i.e., snack time, center time, outside time, circle time, bed time, etc.). Then, for hard to teach or new skills, adults can begin by teaching the child some parts of these objectives in an individual teaching situation. Once the child has mastered a skill in the teaching situation, it is important to quickly move the new skill into the natural setting (e.g., the classroom or family routines). Children with ASD tend to respond well to the use of positive rewards, visual supports, and when fun and enjoyable activities are alternated with more challenging work.
