My daughter is five years old and was diagnosed with autism. She has started going to kindergarten and seems to never want to follow the teachers assignments in class. For example, the teacher will give them a tracing assignment or something where they have to write letters uppercase and lowercase. However, my daughter disregards the direction and seems to draw pictures on the assignments. This has been really hard for my wife and I, and frankly it’s really upsetting to the point where we feel really down and like failures. We want what is best for our child, but it’s been such a challenge to get her to follow directions or complete school assignments. The only success we’ve had is threatening to take away her iPad if she doesn’t do her work or a task. But we feel like that is a problem too. The iPad. Which she’s hooked on. Above all, we really need help and support. What can we do? Has anyone experienced this? How can we get our child to participate more? Please help and any advise is appreciated.
