One way to teach children with autism social skills is to role play with them. Set up the scenario where you refuse to look at them while they talk to you, or you talk to them. They may think it is funny but after you finish with the scenario ask them how it felt not to look at them. They will probably say confusing, ignored or like you didn't like them. Then reiterate that making eye contact is good for all of those reasons. many children with autism struggle to make and keep eye contact,but if they know it is important they may try to.
