Today’s Tip: Behavior is communication. It is how we communicate our wants and needs when language is a barrier. When someone is behaving in a way that leaves you upset or baffled, consider they might be saying something different than your first interpretation. Be objective as you “translate.” Then, if you are concerned about the way it was “said,” give them another way to “say” it.
We are happy to help “translate” this communication at Independent with Autism. Contact Rebecca@IndependentwithAutism.com for more information.
