Two Moms in the Philippines Offer Tips on Good Dental Health for Children with Autism

Posted: Friday, September 17, 2010 - 10:00


Going to the dentist can be scary for any child, but two moms in the Philippines have some tips for going to the dentist with a child with autism. Tiffany Tan from Autism Society Philippines interviewed Barbara and Chyril about their boys and visits to the dentist. The moms spoke about preparing their children for the visit using social stories, visual schedules, and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). They have also both found dentists willing to learn about autism and to accept their children’s behaviors. The moms both say that flossing is the most important thing to do, along with brushing. Other tips included finding a dentist who will allow your child to touch the dental tools, visiting a dental office before the procedure visit, and bring a favorite toy or book along.
