10 Life Skills to Teach Your Child with Autism

Skill # 3: Safety

Many children with sensory difficulties have strong issues about safety. They put themselves in unsafe situations not knowing if an object is too hot or too sharp. Ignorance can lead to bullying, which can make students feel unsafe. Schools need to inform all students about special needs and support children by teaching: what abuse is, what to do in unsafe situations, and how to seek help from an adult.
