Hopefully, this list will shed some light on the things you hear your child saying/singing at home.

Parent Behavior Cue Cards
These are cue cards to tell children what to do at home (i.e. Brush your teeth, Change your clothes, Go to bed). Using visual aids is really helpful if a child does not understand what is expected. Looking at pictures is much easier for children with autism than when they have to listen/interpret visual information. You might want to print these cards, put them on a flip ring, and put them in various places around the house. If you don't have a color printer at home, you could print them at a business like Kinkos (and maybe even at the public library). Here is some info about how to use visual supports at home.

School Behavior Cue Cards
These are the cue cards that you see me wearing around my neck at school. I use them often during the day to help students understand the directions when verbal information does not seem to be effective.
Stop sign
This stop sign visual could be used in places where you do not want your child to go. For example, you might put it on all the outside doors or on your refrigerator. To introduce the idea to your child, take them to the sign, point to the sign and tell them "Stop, this is time to come get mom and dad." Practice with your child that when s/he sees the sign, s/he comes to get your help." Act it out almost like a play to help your child learn the expectation of how to get help for these activities.
Computer Bucks  If your child is motivated by computer time, consider using these "computer bucks" as a reward when your child completes chores, has a great day at school, has good behavior while running errands, does something kind for another family member, etc. Each of the computer bucks is worth five minutes of computer time. Print them and cut them out and tell your child how to earn them. When you first introduce the idea, let your child use the computer time right away so that s/he gets the idea. Get a timer or use the timer on your stove/microwave so that it beeps when your child's computer time is up.
