Understanding Autism Worksheet
What is the theory behind this Understanding Autism Worksheet?
Autism refers to a wide range of conditions which are characterised by varying levels of communication, speech, social and behavioural difficulties that are diagnosed in early childhood. Every individual with autism has their own unique challenges depending on their diagnosis on the autism spectrum. Since early intervention can ensure effective treatment, it is crucial to educate parents about the signs and symptoms related to it so that they can seek the right help at the right time.
How will the worksheet help?
This worksheet will provide a list of signs and symptoms that are associated with autism in toddlers and young children to aware parents to be able to recognize them at the right time. It is important to do this because many of the signs and symptoms may go unnoticed or brushed off as a part of the child’s personality or personal preferences.
How to use the worksheet?
This worksheet can be used in mental health awareness campaigns to raise awareness about the early detection of autism. Parents can use it as a checklist to identify the signs and symptoms in their children so that they are encouraged to seek the right help and learn to manage the condition at the right time.
