Hurdles in Autistic Children Education

by Henry Matthew Occupational Therapy for Kids

By their parents, many children diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome or autism spectrum disorder, are often pulled out from mainstream education. This is because from primary to secondary school, autistic children find the transition difficult to adjust.

Suited to their children, Parents say that primary school is better because of the one-classroom-one-teacher method of teaching. But with an environment that's overwhelming for autistic children who find it difficult to cope with numerous teachers and classroom changes, secondary schools are usually huge. There are classes for children with ASD.

About going to school, Majority of the children having autism spectrum disorder are paranoid. They are labeled as school refuse, cling to their parents, cry, fall ill, and run away.

Some children often explode after returning home and remain tensed throughout the school-day. According to some parents, many of them threaten suicide as the distress their children experience is very severe.

Autism is not a disease. It is true that special care is demanded by autism demands, but from leading a respectful life, this does not limit autistic. People with special needs do deserve their respect and space in the society and they are also humans.

To educate people about autism, while there have been a lot of awareness and campaigns movements unfortunately for autistic in their hearts, there still are people who have a pitiful feeling. This is painful really. But a different part of the story is there as well. You can make your kid attend Classes for children with sensory processing difficulties.

To sensory issues like anxiety and fear the difficulties of autistic children with their school are related in most cases. They can't cope with large groups of children in school and feel overwhelmed in noisy corridors. To turn up with the right equipment or locate their classroom, many others find it difficult.

To autistic children, the pastoral support available in schools can be of great help. To get organized, special needs coordinators help such children.

Their children are subject to bullying as complained by many parents. In fact, one of the most important reasons why from regular school parents are pulling out their children is this. As they are deemed different from others, Children with autism spectrum disorder are often singled out.

As it's said, normal the larger section of people doesn’t like those who are not. An invisible barrier is raised almost immediately and they become frightened. During the lunch time where there's no support worker around, Autistic children are particularly vulnerable.

Some parents said that because they were over-sensitive to injustice, their children were bullied. Some said that even teachers bullied children, who had no idea about autism spectrum disorder. As studies have found out, Autistic children are bullied even in universities, and colleges.

Among people, most parents rue the lack of awareness as society being insensitive to autistic children is one of the main causes. People must understand that not like any neuro-typical person, the dislikes and likes of such children. Many parents prefer classes for children with ASD.

To the world around them, Children with autism are more sensitive and to their needs, people have to be more responsive.
