    Question Teaching autistic adult?

    I used to teach some kids with autism who were very young in a tutoring session type job and someone with autism asked me to give him some lessons possibly. Do any of you have tips for teaching a young autistic adult?? Things I should be mindful of? The person I might be teaching also has dyspraxia. Any tips for how to teach someone with both autism and dyspraxia???

    Thanks! My student has found short youtube videos that relate to what I'm teaching to be useful. Online has a lot of limitations especially when we experience tech issues but so far online seems to work well for adults, not kids. A lot of my teaching is via video call. Think about the attention span of the student when assigning tasks. If you have further tips too let me know?

    Yes, if the kid is hyper combine some kind of physical movement with the task.
