3.1 Difficulty Paying Attention

This is the open-access version of this module and your progress is not tracked or recorded

Children with autism often have difficulties paying attention during instruction, which can cause them to struggle to learn. You need to make sure you have the learner’s attention before providing the instruction. If the learner is not attending, there are many ways to get her attention before a trial.
