Give Choices

All children, including those on the autism spectrum, need to feel a sense of control over their world. Giving them choices is often something that helps them regulate better, because it gives children a sense of familiarity with the world that they can understand. For example, asking them what do they’d first like to have for lunch (“Do you want chicken or fish?”), or what color shirt (“Do you want green or red?”) will give them a feeling healthier about their body and therefore about their overall well-being.
