As some of you know I am now living in Israel. The main language spoken is Hebrew. For the last year I have been working on my Hebrew. I've noticed that there are some simmilarities in learning a language and social skills (for someone on the autisim spectrum). Here is one on exposure to a foreign language or social skills for autism:
- It may seem like a gigantic distance you have to go to master them, but with a lot of practice they are possible to master
- Getting exposed to social skills makes them possible to be learned (this means interacting often in a fun way for them (something they enjoy doing or going in the context of social skills)
- There are many ways to get that exposure. In interacting that could be playing a game (even a multiplayer video game), visiting a place, or doing an activity.
- I personally have been watching a lot of videos in Hebrew and my Hebrew is so much better because of it FIND WHAT IS RIGHT FOR EACH CHILD
