In this type of program, the child usually works one on one with a teacher or in a small group.</p><p>An effective program should be flexible and reward the child for socially motivated communication, such as vocalizing and making eye contact with you when playing a game. The program should be constantly changing to teach the appropriate social communication skills needed at every stage of development. It should be supervised by someone who has a very good understanding of ASD and its treatment.</p><p>An effective program also offers training and support for parents, other caregivers, and teachers. Often it can be difficult for the family, classroom teacher, or other caregivers to help a child with ASD effectively without some training. They also need to be able to talk to a person who specializes in ASD and its treatment.</p><p>Remember, no one knows your child better than you do. Your opinions and understanding of your child are important to the development of an effective program that will meet your child’s needs.</p><p>The Resources for ASD section can provide you with contacts to help you develop your child's ASD program.</p> https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/developing_an_ASD_program_for_your_child.jpgDeveloping an ASD program for your child
