To train social skills, it´s good to have “social stories” to practice different situations.

For mathematical operations teaching aids such as abacuses, countable material, multiplication tables and even a calculator are suggested.

As for dysgraphia due to lack of visual-spatial hand-eye coordination a laptop or tablet is recommended, materials which allow writing that do not condition the outcome of the work.

Allow submission of coursework in alternative formats to written text, such as computer presentations, audio, films, etc.

Prioritize quality of work over quantity, since problems such as dysgraphia and control of handwriting may affect the rhythm and completion of tasks. For this reason it is advisable to regulate the amount of homework, decreasing it.
