How to Make Friends with Someone with Autism by Sarah Stup

#1 — Say hello even though the person may not be able to look or smile at you.

#2 — Keep your voice soft and your movements calm. Too many voices can be confusing.

#3 — Find an interest to share.

#4 — If the person needs to do something unusual, don’t stare.

#5 — Your person with autism hears what you say even though he or she may not seem to be paying attention.

#6 — If he or she becomes upset, try not to touch or talk to him or her very much.

#7 — Your friend with autism may need help but not be able to ask. Let an adult know.
