Everyday Lessons – Teaching my kids with #Autism the life skills needed for independence

One of the most important things that you can do for a child with Autism is prepare them for the world, at least in my opinion.  While school is obviously important, there are a great many things that aren’t learned inside the classroom. 

I always try to include my kids in the day to day things that they will need to be able to master in order to be as independent as possible. 


Over the years I’ve dubbed these things everyday lessons.

Everyday lessons are when I use every possible opportunity to teach my kids something that they will benefit them in their life. 

I wanted to share an example of an Everyday Lesson that I shared with Emmett this afternoon.  This was such a cool moment for me as a parent because I watched Emmett, at age 5,take charge and accomplish a particular task that he will surely benefit from as he gets older and more independent. 

This particular video is featuring Emmett but I’ve done this with all the boys at one time or another. 

Check out the video below.  It’s really short but you’ll see why I’m so proud of Emmett.  🙂
