7 Behavior Often an AS child says or does something that seems odd to others. These behaviors occur because they serve the child in some way. Let us examine some of them, utilizing the format described in the last chapter. Response time Some Asperger children talk constantly. With some, there is a lapse of time between a comment or question and the response of the AS child or adult. Observable behavior – difficulty maintaining the pace of responding that people expect, often with no indication that the AS child has heard what was said.

Glancing can satisfy the other person. Many Asperger children can be trained, or train themselves, to have more eye contact. As they get older, they may become more comfortable with this. For most people, eye contact is not taught. It occurs because it is useful. If we remember that, we can notice and be more appreciative of the child’s efforts to satisfy others. Mannerisms and repetitive behaviors Observable behavior – children with AS may twirl or fidget with objects; flap fingers or hands; pull or twist hair; mouth or chew objects, clothes, or fingers; rock or bounce.

For a mind that is aware of others and attentive to what others think, it can be very hard to understand that the AS child can be unaware that he has walked through another child’s work area and stepped on that child’s papers. How can articulating awareness and perspective help the child and others to work together? Learning to recognize one’s own observable behavior and one’s own perspective is part of awareness of self. With practice, it can support the development of a child’s ability to describe and explain his words and actions to others.
