Autism Worksheet Social Skills
What is the theory behind this Autism Worksheet Social Skills?
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a group of lifelong developmental disabilities that causes a child to have multiple social, communication and behavioural difficulties. These difficulties hamper their recognition and understanding of social cues, emotional expressions, verbal and non-verbal body language making it difficult for them to engage with others. One such social skill is the ability to accept and give compliments.
How will the worksheet help?
The worksheet will help children with ASD to learn to accept and give compliments. They will practise giving compliments to people about their possessions, performance or appearance. They will also learn how to accept compliments with a thankyou and a smile. Learning to give and take compliments can significantly impact the quality of their interactions with others.
How to use the worksheet?
This worksheet can be used by counsellors, parents and remedial teachers as part of intensive training to develop social skills in children with Autism. Use this worksheet after the importance of compliments has been discussed. Using role-plays to teach complimenting can go well with this worksheet.
