Providing access to an individual work area

Noise and color variation in the room are the most common distractors for children with autism

Fidgets may also help autistic kids pay attention
Break Time

These breaks can also be educational or a controlled game, that promotes an area of learning
Children with autism need a different way of teaching, when it comes to sports.
They thrive in individual sports

Peer Modeling
What it is like to have Autism
It is hard for children with autism to fit in, but they feel emotions just like their peers, making it hard to have friends because some children at school don't understand them
The world is overwhelming and confusing, with the over simulation
They can't control what they do
Children with autism have a hard time making friends, even though friends can help kids with autism a lot.
Many "normal" children don't understand children with autism.
Teachers can help this by encouraging kids with and without autism at a young age to interact.
Parallel Play
Kids with autism often prefer parallel play over playing with other kids.
Other kids can also overwhelm kids with autism by being to loud and chaotic

Peer Inclusion
Children with autism often feel excluded
Requiring inclusion of your whole entire class will help children with autism feel more included
The Nervous System
The nervous system is the network of nerve cells and fibers that transmit nerve impulses between parts of the body. This can impact the child because if the development of the brain is slower than it is supposed be it can cause autism.
Specifically neurotransmitter is the area that chemical substance is released at the end of a nerve fiber by the arrival of a nerve impulse. The nerve system in autistic children is knotted, causing behavioral issues.
Fidget toys are self-regulation tools to help keep focus, attention, obtain active listening, in kids with autism.
As educators, it is easy to point out that restless child. The one who is always moving.
Fidgets benefit everyone by keeping the kids with autism focused on the task at hand instead on something else

Picture schedules are the most helpful way to keep a constant routine
Most children love looking fore ward to a predictable schedule, so early notice of a change is beneficial to them

Some children with autism have trouble listening to loud overwhelming noises.
Most children with autism cannot focus with multiple sounds going through the room, that is why you often see them wearing headphones in crowded areas.
