School Steps prides itself on the experience and collective knowledge of its employees. In this video, School Steps Founder and Executive Director Tara Delany, MS, OTR/L, tackles one of the most common social difficulties present in children with autism; understanding the concept of personal space. They often stand too close to others and don’t realize they’re making the other person uncomfortable. In this brief video clip Tara describes her easy-to-use method that helps children with autism understand and apply the concept of “personal space,” which in turn helps them adapt more easily to social situations.
