For my project, I wanted to help kids with autism better communicate and show their emotions. I did this by working at my mom’s job, Helping Hand Family, by working with the children individually. I would observe their behavior and get to learn all the different ways for things. I would also help teach them how to ask for something even if it’s not through speech. Even pointing to what they wanted was acceptable, as long as they communicated without outbursts or angry gestures.
