Share & Share Alike

Sharing can be difficult for any young child. Taking turns with toys or having to share favourite snacks is a skill that may take some time to develop!

Because children with autism sometimes find social situations a bit stressful, it can be hard to understand why someone else needs to take a turn!

At Newfield School for Autism we use lots of visual strategies to support sharing and turn taking:

  • Timers
  • Turn taking boards
  • ‘Make a Deal’ boards
  • Schedules

It may take a while… but when a game is played well or the swing is shared it is wonderful progress to see!
