Jennifer Edmundson, a psychiatric nurse and co-founder of Kenson Kids, has published an article to the Maryland-based parenting blog, The Playful Parent.

“Autistic children often resist trying new things,” says Edmundson. “Parenting and teaching aids that establish and reinforce routines, using visual and tactile stimuli, can be very effective.”
