  2. 2.  The main focus of this research is to help you gain a depth understanding of Asperger’s Syndrome Provide you with a variety of teaching strategies and resources that can help you support children with special needs and their families
  3. 3. Child and his family A boy named Tom, eight years old with Asperger Syndrome His mom is single and works full-timeConcerns Tom still has some difficulty in social situations and impulse control School-age program that closes for the summerNeeds Find a summer program as school is closed Programs that include, active outdoor programs and help develop his social skills
  4. 4.  What is Asperger’s Syndrome ?Asperger Syndrome is an Autism Spectrum Disorder Challenges Behavior Communication Asperger’s Syndrome Social interaction “ Impairments in social interaction and the presence of restricted interests and activities, with no clinically significant general delay in language, and testing in the range of average to above intelligence”
  5. 5. How common is it? “Based on current population statistics, this prevalence rate translates to an estimated 70,000 individuals in Ontario with an ASD”What causes Asperger ‘s Syndrome? The cause of Asperger’s Syndrome is not discovered yet, however theory at this time points to genetic causes.What treatments are needed for children with Asperger ‘s Syndrome ? May include counseling, psycho-education, social skills training, medication, family intervention, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, special diets, and others.How is Asperger ‘s Syndrome diagnosed It is difficult to diagnose and treat AS Children are diagnosed after age 3 and most diagnosed between the ages of 5 and 9 Boys are four times more likely than girls to be affected by AS
  6. 6. Symptoms during childhood “Parents often first notice the symptoms of Asperger syndrome when their child starts preschool and begins to interact with other children”A child with AS might have these signs and symptoms:•May not pick up on social cues and may lack inborn social skills, such as being ableto read others body language and emotion•Problems with attention span and organization•Unable to recognize subtle differences in speech tone, pitch, and accent that alterthe meaning of others (child may not understand a joke )•challenges with nonverbal communication (gestures, facial expression•One-sided conversations are common•Unusual Speech PatternsHowever, those with Asperger ‘s Syndrome do not have significant delays ordifficulties in language or cognitive development
  7. 7. Children with Asperger’s Syndrome may have difficulty with social interactions.Common symptom-Difficulties in seeing things from a another persons perspective.-They may miss humor-They may not pick up on what is or isn’t appropriate in a particular situation (might speak too loudly when entering a church service“ Not being able to understand and recognize others’ emotions can greatly affect social interactions and relationships”
  8. 8.  Here is a video clip of living with AS from a child’s perspective This video should help you understand how children with AS think and feel about his worldClick it - How a kid with Asperger’s syndrome views the world
  9. 9. Identifying and Teaching Social Skills “ The behaviors we identify to teach the child maybe defined broadly ( e.g., participation in cooperative play)or more specifically (e.g., responding to a peers comments)” You may record : What social skills does he demonstrate? “what kind of reinforcement is effective, a time-table for fading reinforcement, and finally, the kind of support that is needed to teach generalization of the new behaviors across persons, situations and time, as well as the fading of this support”
  10. 10.  Teaching how to relate to othersUsing social story books -stories that focus on teaching social comprehension themes may be read to and then discussed about - the importance of sharing with others, - how we appreciate our own things and - how we are saddened if they are ruined by someone - how we respect others - how does the main character feel?Tip!- Books should be read and discussed several times or until the child can readily answer questions For example, The new social story book by Carol Gray is to explain social situations in a way children with ASD understand, while teaching the social skills children need to be successful at home, at school, and in the community
  11. 11.  . “When the lights are turned on and off it is time to tidy up. I see the lights go on and off. I will stop what I am doing. I will put away the toy that I am playing with. We all wait for our teacher to tell us that it is time for snack. I will wait for my teacher. My teacher will be pleased that I have waited quietly” By Carol Gray’s The New Social Story Book
  12. 12. The direct teaching of social rules or conventions (e.g., how to greet somebody, taking turns in a conversation, and maintaining appropriate eye contact) Modeling of social skills or shared viewing and discussing of a video- tape of two people talking or playing Providing specific and structured activities which are to be shared with classmates (e.g., games involving turn-taking -board games based on logic , simple card games ) Encouraging his or her participation in school clubs or organized/structured activities
  13. 13. •Direct teaching about social situations such as how to recognize when someone is joking or how to recognize how someone else is feeling. - using pictures of people faces with clearly showing expressions indicating anger, amusement, etc.,- with the target child helped to identify the various feelings and guess what caused them. Games or role play to focus upon the viewpoint of another person “This might include simply looking at pictures of children or adults interacting or working together or sharing some activity, and asking what is happening or what a given individual is doing, and what he might be thinking” “Direct teaching of what to do ( or what not to do ) in certain situations, such as when the teacher is cross either with the individual child or with the whole group” The establishment of a "buddy" system or a system where the child in question is encouraged to observe how other children behave in particular situations
  14. 14.  Having selected peers specifically model social skills. The buddy might also be encouraged to be the partner of the children with Asperger’s Syndrome in games, showing how to play, and offering or seeking help if the child is teased. A clarity and explicitness of rules in the classroom to minimize uncertainty, and to provide the basis for tangible rewards “In a group setting, adopting the circle time strategy of limiting verbal contributions to whomsoever is in possession of some object (while ensuring that the object circulates fairly among the whole group)”
  15. 15. Creating a Visual Children with Aspergers Syndrome typically display strengths in their visual processing skills, with significant weaknesses in their ability to process information auditorily. Therefore use of visual methods of teaching, as well as visual support strategies, should always be included into any teaching that you are doing. - “Provide a visual timetable plus bulletins of any innovations so there is no uncertainty about the days routine” - “Using either cue cards or a short script”- Create Visual Supports for your child
