Slowing it Down

Slowing it Down

Today’s approach is known as “slowing it down.” This processing approach is similar to “breaking it down.”

It may be difficult to rush your son or daughter through things like chores and the morning routine etc. One possible solution to help your child from getting stuck is to slow…. things…. down.

You can do this by simply giving your child a few extra minutes to get the task done or you can even help walk them through the process. This way, things will go a bit more smoothly and your child’s funnel won’t get full so easily.

Just remember, things that you and I take for granted, do not come so easily to someone with autism or a similar processing disorder.
