Special Education. ASD (Autism)

Starting with the first installment about my Special Education proposal, adjusted to the content schedule, on a very important topic such as ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)

It is important to begin by remembering that Autism is a neurobiological disorder that affects the configuration of the nervous system and brain function, leading to difficulties in two areas mainly between these communication and social interaction and flexibility of thought and behavior.

That is why children with this condition are completely or partially isolated from society, avoiding with this behavior the crowds with other people and those with high noise rates, disturbing elements of their emotional state

Also, we should keep in mind that it is common that children with Autism Spectrum Disorder cannot make gestures (such as pointing to an object, for example) to give meaning to what they say. They usually avoid eye contact, which makes them look rude, selfless or distracted.

About this disorder 5 main types of autism are differentiated, so people who suffer can be placed at any point in the spectrum, hence their level of functioning.

Strengths a child with ASD may have
A tendency to sincerity.
When you focus on your interest and it becomes your goal, you can achieve great results.
They are usually perfectionist children.
Are able to accumulate large amounts of information about their interests.

Weaknesses a child with ASD may have
Difficulty in verbal and non-verbal communication. The communication difficulties they may present are manifested both at the level of understanding and expression.
Difficulty with social interaction.
Way of thinking and behaving.
Repetitive behaviors.

Children with autism often have limited interests. His game tends to be repetitive and lonely.

To educate a child is not to learn something he didn't know, but to make him someone who didn't exist.
