Prioritizing Social Goals: The Key to Helping Children with Autism
There is a widespread national fixation on educating children with any form of autism spectrum disorder, emphasizing academic skills. No matter how diligently one may work on these academic skills, they will never teach individuals with autism how to be social. These skills cannot teach them how to form friendships, laugh at jokes, express genuine love, say “I love you,” or sincerely care about others. Individuals with autism struggle with creating connections and forming relationships, as autism is primarily a social and relational disorder.
In our Sunrise Program, we address this issue by incorporating the Social Developmental Model during our introductory five-day training program called the Startup Program. By prioritizing social goals before academic goals, we aim to help our children become socially adept. As we delve into this area, many viewers may be pleasantly surprised by the capabilities of individuals with autism in terms of social interaction.
