Picture to word matching using Avaz

At present he can communicate for his needs, he can initiate interactions, he can express his feelings and can ask for medicines, he can introduce himself,can send greetings to friends and relatives, he can order food from restuarents etc. Now I am training him for words level. I taught him words to pictures matching using structured files, in worksheets during computer skill training programs etc. He is not a rote learner and so he doesn't know spellings.

How I changed noncompliant behaviours in my son

Advaith was diagnosed with ADHD, Autism and SPD. He was rejected by most famous early intervention centres because of his noncompliant behaviour and hyperactivity. He would cry loudly to escape from activities, was very restless and displayed severe sensory processing dysfunctions. From there I started my journey with my dear Addu.
I met some experienced therapists and started working with him as a co-therapist. They explained to me that most of these kids have a high a level of anxiety and a structured environment will help them calm down. Dr. Preeja suggested that we enrol him into Bubbles Centre for Autism, where they follow a structured teaching method. Sarbani ma’am and her team welcomed Addu to Bubbles. He continued his screaming, crying and noncompliance. I then decided to pursue a Special Education course and did my practicals at Bubbles. At that time, I was learning about structured teaching method and how it helps kids to reduc…

How I developed Fine Motor Skills that are helpful for vocational skills

Advaith had severe Fine motor difficulties and he was struggling for pincer grip and tripod grip. So he was crying continuously while doing those activities. Now we came a long way and he can do buttoning, sorting all sorts of grains, taking green peas from the pod, cutting vegetables using knife, weaving, jewellery making, stitching and embroidery, cutting using scissors by following instructions, typing independently for data entry, mouse skills for using different tools, stamping in given boxes (prerequisite for block printing) and many more. Here I am explaining how I developed those skills step by step. - Putting coins in the piggy bank- Putting rajma seeds in a plastic box through small hole- Shape sorter- Board puzzles of different shapes and size.- Hammer toy- Beading using medium sized beads by following patterns When he completed 8 years I was thinking how can I develop skills using activities.

Different materials i used to teach Advaith

Dear Friends,
I was a cotherapist for Addu from when he was diagnosed. I started training him with different materials when he was 2.4 years old, now he is 10 years old. When he started making significant improvement I started sharing my way of teaching and learning. In this video I am showing what all the materials I bought for training him. I was buying materials at the same time I used to make materials at home. This video will help the parents to buy materials if there is no time to make materials. Please remember that, all these materials I bought one by one and used it step by step. In this video I am showing from where you can buy the corresponding materials. If there is any confusion you all can message me.
