  1. Social Skills Activities: Engage in social skills activities that help them develop important skills for interaction. This could include role-playing, board games, or practicing turn-taking.
  2. Art and Creativity: Art and creative activities can be therapeutic and enjoyable. Set up art stations with various materials like paints, markers, and clay. Encourage self-expression through art.
  3. Cooking Together: Cooking can be a fun and educational activity. Involve your child in the kitchen to teach them about food, measurements, and following instructions.
  4. Storytime and Reading: Reading together can be an excellent bonding experience. Choose books that align with your child's interests and reading level. Use interactive books with textures or sounds.
  5. Technology and Educational Apps: Many educational apps and games are designed to help children with autism develop various skills. Choose age-appropriate and engaging apps that focus on their needs.

    How do you mitigate the risks in the cooking activity? e.g. sugar, fire or anything that would be of negative effect to the child? Quite an insightful post👏
