No matter how high-functioning children with autism or Asperger's may be or may become, they function better as adults if they've had the chance to learn basic skills, from being on time to good personal hygiene/5(). First of all great post. Children with autism become prompt dependent, and chances to show their abilities are confined. Children on the autism spectrum should begin learning functional life skills at a young age. It makes way for freedom, self-assurance, and eagerness to learning new tasks.

    Many times, life skill tasks that seem obvious to people without autism seem complicated and overwhelming to people with autism.

One of the best ways for children with autism, Asperger’s, and sensory processing disorders to learn is through play. Games and Activities for Children With Autism, Asperger’s and Sensory Processing Disorders by Tara Delaney Children improve their motor skills, language skills, and social skills by moving their bodies and interacting with their environment.
