Autism & Teens

Helping Autistic Teens with Social Skills
Here are a few ways people can help teens with autism develop social skills and relationships:

Choose one social “rule” at a time. For example: entering or exiting a conversation, making small talk, choosing friends, hosting get-togethers, etiquette for attending parties or social events, good sportsmanship and handling being teased. Teens with autism can easily become overwhelmed with all the different rules of social conduct. Breaking it down to focus on one rule at a time, explaining and writing down the steps or rules for each situation can help.

Role-play different situations to help an autistic teen find ways to manage the situation. For example, create a scene where someone is introduced to the teen. What would be appropriate to say? What should he do? Acting out the scene, from shaking hands to saying something age appropriate, such as “What’s up?” can help make the introduction go more smoothly.

Learn the language of teens. Because individuals with autism have difficulty understanding different meanings and nuances of phrases, it helps to learn how the teens today are talking to help translate. For example, if a classmate says, “What’s up?” to your teen, you don’t want him looking up and replying, “The sky.” Help your teen learn idioms and slang to better navigate conversations with peers.

Find safe places for the teen to interact with other teens. This could be in a community class on a topic he is interested in, or a group made up of teens with autism or Asperger’s Syndrome, with a select group of peers that have shown understanding and friendship to your child or in a structured environment with adult supervision aware of and willing to help the teen.  You can ask the high school guidance office to find out if there is a group of students with autism or Asperger’s Syndrome that can regularly meet to practice social skills with one another.

If you know a teen with Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome maybe you can help.

Exercise & Autism

The benefits of exercise for children with autism and Asperger’s syndrome:

  • decreased repetitive behaviors, such as rocking, hand flapping or tapping
  • less aggressive behavior
  • increased on-task attention
  • improved academic performance
  • better physical coordination
  • improved motor skills

Helps Maintain Weight
In the United States, approximately 15 percent of children are overweight, however, in children with autism, this increases to 19 percent and 36 percent of children with autism are at risk of becoming overweight.

Social Benefits to Exercise
Sports offer children social opportunities. Team sports should be carefully considered as not all children with autism are prepared for the social environment of a team sport. Other sports, such as swimming and track, may offer the benefit of being part of a team but with emphasis more on individual performance.

Decrease in Repetitive Behaviors
One study looked at children with autism who participated in running and swimming and found a decrease in repetitive behaviors after 60 minutes of swimming. According to Autism Speaks, this may be because swimming itself involves repetitive behaviors and it might decrease the need for those behaviors outside of the pool. Aerobic exercise and running have also been found to decrease these types of behaviors.

Difficulty with motor skills may be one reason that children with autism do not like to participate in physical activity. They may also find it difficult to plan an exercise program or may avoid team sports or even playing outdoors with other children. For some, sensory sensitivities may make exercise uncomfortable or painful.

Go to HealthCentral.com for some ways parents can help their children become more active.
