Children with autism and the problem of interrupting

Children with autism spectrum disorder often struggle to understand how to interrupt other people in a tactful manner. Children with ASD’s may have strong interests they feel compelled to share.  They may find it very hard to interpret the social cues that indicate that another person might be occupied, preoccupied, or social engaged with another person.

Children on the autism spectrum do often have a good grasp of how computers work.  When we are helping children to develop insight and social skills associated with interrupting, it is really helpful to use a certain computer-based metaphor – buffering.
