Episode Summary

In this video, Dayna Lim talks about how confidence building can affect the growth and development of a child on the spectrum.

The confidence level of the child will decide how much social involvement he is comfortable to be associated with directly. One of the most direct way for parents to help build their child’s confidence level is to create an opportunity for the child to perform a skill set and offer positive praises. Skill building is thus a highlight from early intervention besides behaviour modification.

Personal image building is an important factor for teenagers to build their identity and confidence and this is especially so for children on the spectrum. Parents with teenagers on the spectrum can try to help them create a style and dress sense that makes them feel good about themselves.
