Frequently Asked Questions
How can I avoid nagging my child who doesn’t listen?
Research has found that using secret signs, along with verbal directives, can be useful for dealing with children with autism. A child can be taught what a sign means and then a verbal command can be replaced by the signal to prompt them to change their behaviour. This can stop you from nagging your child and sounding rude, as well as prove to be less embarrassing for the child who likely hates attention being drawn to them.
