17. Proper working conditions For some Aspergers kids, an improper working environment can cause them to be defiant. Students are hungry and thirsty when they come home from school. A few minutes for a snack are certainly appropriate. Don't push for perfection. 3. Be flexible When the Aspergers youngster comes home from school don't pounce on them to get their homework done. Give them several minutes to shake off that school smell, get a snack and relax.
Have the youngster complete some of the homework and then let them take a break by engaging in an activity that relaxes them. Set a timer and make sure the youngster knows how much free time they will have.
If it is the other way around, a defiant youngster will continue to be defiant because of the desire to continue the pleasurable activity. 15. Offer win-win options Offer options that get everything done, such as allowing the youngster which thing they do first, math or writing.
