Ask Amanda

At the end of every month I want to anwer any questions you might have relevant to the topics discussed in this blog. If you have any questions, post them here as a comment. I will answer them next week....

But in the meantime, I want to talk about another way to teach pragmatics... I'll get back to you with this shortly.

Hi Amanda, this is Kim from facebook. I have a question, or a suggestion depending.. Have you made a book, or social story about biting? Or other behaviors like kicking, hitting, spitting, banging head. Any "sterotypical" autistic behaviors that need intervention? I think showing visuals would help with these since the child doesn't understand that it hurts others, or can really hurt themselves. Thanks

I work with a 4th grader who has Down Syndrome. She often sees other children, who are close friends, hugging or pushing each other in joking ways. Since she is not at age level with social skills, she applies this same behavior to other children she doesn't know. She will go up to children in the lunchroom or on the playground and grab or hug them. Most children do not like this. I don't know how to explain the social do's and don'ts to her.
