      Body

    • C.

      Learning

    Correct Answer
    A. Eye
    Explanation
    A child with ASD may exhibit marked deficits in using eye contact, facial expressions, posture, and gestures to regulate social interaction. Eye contact is an important non-verbal behavior that helps individuals establish and maintain social connections. However, children with ASD often struggle with making eye contact, which can hinder their ability to effectively engage in social interactions. This difficulty with eye contact is one of the many challenges faced by individuals with ASD in their communication and social skills.

    Rate this question:

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that non-verbal communication makes up a significant portion of overall communication, specifically around 30-40%. However, the correct answer is False. This implies that the statement is incorrect and that non-verbal communication does not constitute such a large percentage of overall communication.

      Attention

    • C.

      Expression

    • D.

      Language

    Correct Answer
    B. Attention
    Explanation
    Many children with an ASD have attention deficits and are easily distracted, which means they struggle to focus and maintain their concentration. As a result, they may find it challenging to learn in a group setting where there are multiple distractions. However, when they receive one-on-one learning, they are able to receive individualized attention and support, which can greatly enhance their ability to learn and engage in educational activities.

  • 8. 

    Group learning is a very popular method of teaching, because of the practice of taking classes with many others, but a child with ASD may not be impelled to do this unless they are particularly interested in the subject.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Group learning is a popular method of teaching because it allows students to learn from and interact with their peers. However, children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may not be naturally inclined to participate in group learning unless they have a strong interest in the subject being taught. This is because individuals with ASD often struggle with social interactions and may have difficulty engaging with others in a group setting. Therefore, it is true that a child with ASD may not be motivated to participate in group learning unless they have a specific interest in the topic.
