Homeschool curriculum for a 2 year old with Autism?

Postby CadensmommyO » Thu Mar 14, 2013 5:21 pm

I am very new to all of this. My husband and I decided to homeschool our son who has autism and I don't even know where to start. I am having difficulties finding a curriculum for a child with autism. Would anyone recommend one that could be for a two year old? Or even preschool so I know where to look? I know a lot of people purchase bits and pieces from different places but I don't know everything I would need.

I have a 4.5 year old son with autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, and ADHD.

One of the biggest and most helpful things has been for us to receive speech and OT services through our school district. You can still homeschool and it is free.

I do a combination of services (speech, PT, OT) concurrently with stuff at home. One of the most helpful things has been 'Sensory Stations.' You basically get a water table and do a variety of sensory skills on it. For example, my son had HUGE texture issues, so once every 3-5 days, we would play with different textures on this table....sand, jello, pudding, played oh, water.... This really helped. If you do it outside, you can just hose it down and leave the mess outdoors :)
