Any advice for interactive toys for 20 month old autistic girl
I am really new at this, and any advice would be greatly appreciated. I read a book that explains how to interact with autistic kids using the Early Start Denver Model. (BTW, she goes to early intervention in january, but in the mean time, I really want to work with her). I have only been doing it for two days now, but I feel like my daughter is already bored with the interactive toys we are playing. I tried pretend food and trying to get her to understand pouring tea into a cup. All she wants to do is bang the food together. I am trying to teach her to hug her baby doll, but she gets so mad whe I hug the doll she starts crying and then throws it. I don't know, maybe this is too much for her. I have taken all of her old toys aways because they don't allow interaction. She loves flipping the pages of books, so I try to point and explain the book, but she gets mad.
Am I doing something wrong here? She is only 20 month old, so maybe I should be trying something else. Anyone had success with something I could maybe try?
