Slowing things down

Slowing it Down

Today’s autism-related processing approach is known as “slowing it down.” This processing approach is similar to “breaking it down,” which we covered previously.

Remember, it may be difficult to rush your son or daughter through things like chores, or the morning routine. However, one possible solution to help prevent your child from getting stuck is to slow things down.

How to slow things down

To slow things down, simply give your child a few extra minutes to complete a task. If needed, you can even help walk them through the process. As a result, things will go a bit more smoothly and your child’s funnel won’t get full so easily.

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