Hands-on learning helps teach children important life skills at an early age. Teaching life skills at an early age is an important part of raising a child affected by autism. Regardless of a child’s ability level, practicing life skills now can best prepare them for success throughout their life. Basic self-help skills, such as dressing, eating, and grooming are an essential part of daily life. These skills should be taught at a young age so that children can continue to develop them as they grow.

Children gain an understanding of life skills by imitating others and through hands-on exploration and practice. Games, toys, and pretend play that introduce life skills at an early age can help prepare children for real life experiences in the future. The products on this page teach important life skills such as telling time, counting and using money, and healthy eating habits.

The All About Me Mirror Boards have been a fantastic asset to my class. I have emotion flash cards that we've used for many years to help identify emotions - happy, sad, surprised, angry, etc. Now we use them along with these mirrors. We identify the picture and then I have the students imitate that emotion in a mirror.
