Distraction and inability to focus on a certain activity can hamper learning in autistic children. The way they process their thoughts is diverse and it is important to idientify the reasons which can cause this distraction. Parents can help their children by understanding when these instances happen and finding out what the child is thinking about and how he is perceiving the world around him. Having conversations with the child in a manner that he understands best allows parents to take care of the thoughts that distract the child and help him focus better. Jill Sanghvi, a Senior Therapist from UMMEED Mumbai shares her experience of having worked with children and families and understanding what works best to address this issue.
