Improving Sitting Tolerance in Autism
There are many different things individuals with autism can do to improve their tolerance in sitting. Let’s discuss them one by one.
Participating in therapy
One example is that they can participate in therapy that will stimulate their senses. This is done so they can pay attention to the tasks more effectively. Another thing they can do is take time to reflect on themselves and reflect on past experiences when they were successful in this area.
Find Activities where they would feel less anxious
They also could participate in activities where they would be more successful or feel less anxious when sitting down. This way, they would still be improving their tolerance for sitting but doing it in a way that makes them feel more comfortable and less anxious about it.
Finding Peer with similar Interests
They could also find a peer who they can relate to, and has similar interests. Having this person come over could be something that makes them more excited about improving their ability to sit for longer periods. This would allow individuals with autism to have someone help them during this difficult time. It is important to note however if it does become too much for the individual because of anxiety or other reasons, you should take a break from your activities. You do not want to put yourself at risk of injuring yourself even further by continuing through your frustration.
Identifying Sensory Triggers
Another thing an individual can do is identify their sensory ‘triggers’ if they exist. Some common triggers are having certain tactile sensitivities (i.e., materials in clothing that irritate the skin), being exposed to certain sounds, etc. Making sure to identify them can help an individual have more control over their reactions when they need it most.
Allowing time for Improvement
The last thing is allowing time for improvement rather than expecting instant results. It takes a lot of consistency and patience in improving this area so you must be patient. Patience does not mean you should lose hope though, because autism is something that individuals with autism cannot control. If they feel discouraged, tell them how proud you are of them even though sometimes things may seem difficult. Because in reality, improving in a new area takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Parents can also introduce helpful sensory items such as weighted lap pads or compression vests when sitting where needed.
