I always like to have thematic activities to do with all my students over the holidays. Times like this are good opportunities to address social skills. Students with ASD and students with special needs are easily influenced by what they see on TV, advertisements in stores and billboards. It is hard for them to separate what is acceptable and not. I have found that it is important to set very concrete limits of appropriate and inappropriate behavior. In our society, there are acceptations to just about EVERTHING, something very difficult to teach these kiddos.. It’s important to promote friendship, love and compassion using appropriate behaviors.
