It is important to be aware of the impact of my own verbal and non-verbal communication on an individual with an autistic spectrum condition because they may respond anxiously to certain things such as; loud voices, too much eye contact or standing too close, so it is important to notice what is going on verbally and non-verbally. It is important to try and gain the individual’s attention first, so they are positive that you are talking to them. You need to remember to slow down and speak calmly, with short clear sentences, so that the individual can process what is being said.
