Children particularly with Autism, need ample opportunities to feel successful while needing ample opportunities to develop fine motor skills. Here’s a bit on Montessori practical life lessons being used in a early intervention program. The activities are modified, as well as their location (or where they’d find the activity). In Montessori classrooms, you’d find these activities on a shelf. My team and I place them on the table for easy view and access thus promoting self-initiation and decision making. T
When I see them happy and engaged, it makes my heart melt. My heart tickles more when they are electing to use the activity as a reinforcer.
All children can learn. We just have to set them up for success.
