Other common words employed to describe ‘aloof ’ are: alien, living in a bubble, shut off in a world of his own, cut off from reality, the lost child, etc. What do they really want to describe? I had a few unanswered questions: • • What was my child doing when he behaved in an aloof way? • Is he lonely or is he happy living in a world of his own? Could I/you enter that world? • • • What is your and my child doing when we catch that lost look in his big eyes? Is he happy inside that world? Is that world all that different from our own?
Have you noticed him trying to copy or join in the games of those children? 3. Are the other children asking you to intervene and make peace? 4. Can you notice resentment from the other children? 5. Can the autistic child share comfortable silences with his siblings or yourself ? TeamLRN 54 AUTISM – THE EIGHTH COLOUR OF THE RAINBOW Lack of flexibility during play shows lack of shared understanding Remember, at an early stage of development, or ‘adaptation to our system of communication’ as I like to call it, the lack of flexibility is a reflection of lack of shared understanding of a given situation, not lack of willingness to take part.
Communication is a ticket to mutual understanding, your child’s freedom of expression, self-esteem and a new lease of life. Therefore your efforts to inspire communication will be rewarded in the shape of peace of mind. Autism doesn’t prevent non-verbal communication Based on my experience, I can assert that every child communicates his needs to you, even if he communicates them through what we perceive as unacceptable, repetitive or senseless behaviour. Providing him with the autistic environment for learning will make it easy for the child to adapt his style of communication to incorporate the non-autistic style.
