Try to be consistent at home. You may opt for specialized school where your child can learn sign language. But at home always try to minimize the use of such language. Rather, find out how your child reacts with specific words, picture, and incidents and sounds. Depending on such observation try to communicate with suitable signs, behavior, and body language. If possible also try to teach your child to understand sentences from lip movement.
Maintain a schedule. Most of the children with ASD feel irritated to any changes in their daily life or activities. So try to maintain a consistent routine concerning diet, physical activity, learning, pay time, and bed time.
