How to teach your child to greet his/her peers appropriately.
Below are some social rules to teach your child with Autism about greetings.
- The first time that you see someone that you know In the morning, it is polite to say “good morning.”
- When you pass someone in the hallway or yard, it is polite to say “hi!”
- When someone is leaving for the day it is polite to say “goodbye” “have a great day” or see you tomorrow. “
To work on this skill, practice role-playing with your child. Another idea is to write up a list of greetings and practice them in the natural environment.
