Managing Autism with Trusted Coaching

Develop a Positive Routine

People living with autism thrive on routine and predictability. It's essential to create a positive routine that includes healthy habits such as good nutrition, exercise, and quality sleep. Additionally, a routine should be designed to work with unique needs. For example, some people with autism have difficulty with transitions and may need more time to adjust to new activities. By creating a routine that works well, you can help your loved ones feel more secure and in control.

Encourage Independance

It's important to help people with autism help gain independence in day-to-day activities. Small victories such as dressing themselves, brushing their teeth, or making their own breakfast can help improve their confidence and self-esteem. By gradually increasing their independence, we can help develop vital skills essential in day to day life.

Use Visual Supports

Many people with autism often struggle with language and communication. Using visual supports is an effective way to help your understand and process information. Visual aids such as picture schedules, social stories, and visual timers can help feel more confident and independent. It's important to assess which visual supports work best for each person's unique needs and use them consistently.
