One of the most frustrating issues for a parent of a special needs child is communication skills. It can become a problem when the child is sick. The child shows no signs at the time of being sick through social interaction or behavior. An idea to solve the problem is to do a social story about not feeling good and how you can help them. Another idea is to draw or paint out their feelings at times. Just remember, communicate with your child's teacher if your child is sick because some of the other children could be or have gotten sick.
