WHO ARE WE?

All 4 Autism is a local advocacy group with the sole purpose of increasing awareness, resources and support for those of all ages with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the Pee Dee Region, and their families. Our organization is a grassroots effort that was started in 2005 by ASD families in the Florence area. We opened the first Autism Resource Center for the Pee Dee on April 25, 2017.

This page is a GREAT resource for ideas on incorporating visual cues, as well as tips for improving executive function.Routines and visuals help children build new skills. Here’s what we did to learn how to put away shoes. Back when shoes were on the floor everywhere... or impossible to find anywhere, I made a visual guide for our shoe closet to show where shoes stay when we’re not wearing them. I outlined the kids’ shoes, and they each decorated their shoe mat. I laminated it for the floor of our shoe closet. ✅ So first: we made a visual guide. We made it together and included their special interests. They were helping to solve a problem!The next two steps are equally important. ✅ Model how the system works *during moments of calm when brains are able to learn*. Use your body to show that the new system works “just like this”. Explain each step by painting a picture with your words to describe what you’re doing. Choose words that are clear and concrete. ✅ Practice. Practice over and over. Make it fun and playful. Take turns practicing. Then practice every day until it becomes routine. Use a calm voice to remind kids how the system works when they forget. Read more about Conscious Discipline®’s M.A.P. process for teaching routines. M.A.P. stands for Model, Add visuals, Practice:consciousdiscipline.com/scaffolding-in-parenting.../Listen to a podcast where I explain more ideas for supporting routines with visuals:podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/raising-young-children-in-wake-county/id1643683368Listen to Emily W.
