Strangely enough all these things - learning, innovating, socialising and feeling compassion - have a common base called the Social Engagement System. Do you remember Dr Abdul Kalam the former President of India and well known Missile Engineer? I had the pleasure of meeting him and having a short conversation with him. My strongest memory of that time is my wonderment at what a charming man he was. His other accomplishments were somehow overshadowed by this one attribute. He was all these things - learned, innovative, charming socialiser and clearly compassionate.

It was only much later when I started working with children who were on the autistic spectrum and who are presented with the most powerful learning challenges, as well as the inability to socialise and feel for others that I began to understand that Dr Kalam's achievements were all tied together by a common thread. He was just at the opposite end of the continuum from the children I work with.

As I began to research the problems of Autism, I began to understand that many of us have the same problems though in lesser measure. Some of these problems are created by our physiology, and some are created by trauma in our lives. I also learned that many of these problems of social behaviour could be dealt with without medication, i.e. drugs, and without any invasive treatment, i.e. surgery. This is not to say that a complex problem like Autism can be easily cured, but certainly, the social behaviour side of things can be improved - often considerably.

I was lucky to be able to get feedback and guidance in my work from Dr Steven Porges who developed the Polyvagal Theory after 40 years of research. He also developed the Safe and Sound Protocol which merely requires those affected to listen to a program of ordinary vocal music engineered to create an exercise for some crucial muscles in the middle ear which change the tension of the eardrum. This affects our ability to socialise and our ability to learn, through complex mechanisms.

If your heart rate goes up by even a little bit when you hear the low frequency roar of a vacuum cleaner or if you are comforted by your mother's voice and discomfited by your father's, then it is possible that many of your learning problems may come from this middle ear problem.

However, many of us are also affected by trauma from an event that took place either before we came into this world or later. This often manifests itself in some repetitive actions or 'tics' we undertake particularly when we are stressed. For those who are affected by trauma, learning can become a challenging task. Real learning and innovation need you to ideally be in a state of "flow" which we can learn how to do.

Just ten to twenty hours of working with me may be all that you need to solve such problems even though it may take up to 3 months to get the full effect of the work we do in those ten hours.

Prompting is a very important technique used in teaching a child with autism. It is basically the assistance given to the child to learn some skills or to reach some educational goal.

There are many different types of prompts like verbal prompts, textual prompts, picture prompts, physical and gesture prompt etc.

At first, therapist should examine the kid properly and then determine which prompt will be useful for the child’s effective learning.

Prompting should be systematically faded and gradually led the child to complete the work independently. It should start from least restrictive form to most restrictive form.

Verbal prompt which is also known as phonemic prompt where teacher help the child by saying just first phoneme or the sound to extract the exact answer from the child. Again, textual prompt are like written words or instructions that are given to the child to complete the task. Physical prompt is where the therapist provide physical contact to the child to accomplish the goal.

To start with, you may try to shorten the study duration, 20mins -half an hour. Rote learning can be a problem. Instead of asking him to pick a book and study right away, you may try to have a discussion about the chapter first. So whichever topic you want him to learn that day, have a discussion on it. Guide him through the topic by asking him simple questions and build the information on it. Then ask him to read the lesson. Since now he already has some knowledge about the lesson, he might find it easy to recollect while reading. read less
