like any other kid it totally depends on his/her personality. With my Asperger's child visual warnings and time out as well as privilege loss work best. Again these are all visual. I use charts, video games 'dollars' for rewards and privilege loss (A kind of correction currency so to speak) also a timer for time outs. He needs things to be very visual for him to 'get it' Keep in mind a chils with Autism is going to take a little longer to learn to control some behaviors. It is best to learn your childs triggers nad prevent those situations or teach them to cope before the situation arises. Such as I know my DS has a very hard time in stores, I think it is the echoing-giving him an MP3 player with music nad letting him hold the 'prize' (a car, apple, candy bar, w/e he picks that is small) we will buy if he can make itt o the check out helps.
