How Autistic Children Learn

I came across this article while doing research and I thought I would pass it along. The Difference in the Way Children with Autism Learn New Behaviors was posted on ScienceDaily July 10, 2009 and it brings up some very interesting points. The findings ultimately suggest something I think most parents of autistic children already knew: our children really do, in fact, learn differently than their typical peers.

What’s interesting to me is the correlation between the child’s need for proprioceptive input and their impairment with social skills, etc. I hope that these kinds of studies will lead to new methods of teaching. The more we understand how our kids learn, the better we can teach them.
