Q:

What do I need to know about teaching a preschool child with Autism?

I am teaching a 4 yr old child this year in our Prechool and want to go about knowing how to handle him and his needs. He does speak but in simple words. Thanks for any input.

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

I would recommend the following:

1- Ask for assistance from the local school district (if he is being served by their programs) and any state or local agency that offers consultations, trainings and resources. (In my state it is the Children's Services programs)

2- Read up on autism and education. Here are some great resources:
