If so, what sorts of chores does s/he do?
Of course. Naturally I have to ask him like 30 or 40 times before he does it. He is what we call "recycling boy", so he must take the bottles/cans to the bin in the garage. He never does it of his own accord, we have to tell him to do it. He is expected to bring his laundry down to the laundry room and to put his clean, folded laundry away (ususally he just dumps it on the ground, but at least it made it to his room).
Logan has to pick up his room (with help) and take care of his dirty laundry (also with help). He isn't high functioning enough to do any more chores.
Yes he does...my son with asd is a teen now ...but he has always had chores...its good for them...start young that way its easier when they get older...he cleans his room he takes the trash out...he helps a little with the lawn...we give him an allowance...he loves it...
Yes. JJ, my 13 year old, has really improved at following directions this summer. He now takes the garbage out and helps with very basic wants or needs of our 11 year old boy (getting him a drink and such). The 11 year old is in charge of letting dogs in and out.
DS is 7 and he has to feed the dog in the morning and make sure he has water in his bowl, drag his laundry basket to the laundry room so I can wash his clothes, takes the recyclables out to the bin and has to pick up all his toys at the end of the day before he goes to bed.
lol I just posted here about chores. My oldest helps bring in groceries. He also feeds the cat. I am going to add to his list...
