Homeschooling Autistic Children

In recent months, many parents have begun homeschooling their children as a result of school closures across the globe. This is a difficult task for any parent. However, homeschooling children with autism create even greater challenges. When homeschooling an autistic child, it is necessary to provide a healthy balance of support and education.

At Alee, we help families and children by offering a range of therapies and support at our autism clinic to ensure each child reaches their full potential. With this in mind, we’ve put together 2 tips for homeschooling autistic children!

1) Follow a routine.

Your child is used to following a specific schedule. Usually, this means getting up early, having breakfast and heading off to school! Try your best to follow this routine. When homeschooling autistic children, start your ‘classes’ at the same time every day. Also, take breaks and do your best to mirror the classroom experience at home.

2) Take breaks.

We all know it can be much more distracting when you are working from home! But this does not mean that you shouldn’t take plenty of breaks! Remember, if your child was at school, they’d get to enjoy recess with their friends. Homeschooling autistic children shouldn’t be any different – taking a break can help them feel refreshed and rejuvenated!
