For many children with autism, the ability to occupy time by themselves does not always come naturally. In this lesson, Independent play, we show how to guide your child to choose and activity, stay on task for an appropriate duration, play with toys according to their function, and to clean up when finished.

The ability for children to appropriately occupy time alone is an important developmental milestone that is useful to your child, his family, and to school staff on a daily basis.
