Autism Sprectrum Disorder

Surely school will take over?

Surely school will take over?

Parents are most often of the opinion that, when their child goes to school, school will take over and they will learn what they need to know. School as it appears to parents, is the benchmark for learning.

Do children with autism learn as their peers do, or in a similar fashion? Will the youngsters ‘get it’ by placing them into a typical environment. Has their early intervention program taught them enough skills with few hours, to manage appropriately at school, given legal school entry is now pre-primary? Will school/day care teach them to model play and social skills, so they can mix with their peers successfully? Well I’d say ‘not nearly enough.’
