Tip: Picking Up Toys, Books

Many kids on the autism spectrum have relatively clean rooms because they do not play with their toys. At times, you will find that your grandchild likes to flick or scatter things. This would be an opportunity to have them clean up. You say: “Time to clean up” and then help the child – taking turns. You pick one item up, and the child picks one item up to put away. Then you take a turn, then the child.
