6. Intervention in a school setting
Where the degree of autism allows integration into a standard educational environment, special help ensures this proceeds as smoothly as possible. Regular children acquire essential reading, writing, and arithmetical skills by a certain age, but you cannot expect an autistic student to achieve the same standard without additional help. It can make a world of difference if they receive individual assistance from someone who understands their unique communication problems and learning difficulties. If the degree of autism is more severe, only purpose-built educational institutions can cater to them.
