You might be wondering why teach body parts if your child or client with autism doesn’t even know how to talk. But teaching body parts to toddlers and young children with autism have numerous benefits. That’s why learning body parts as soon as possible is a great decision. Children can learn to indicate pain, can learn the signs to the bodies, given they are easy, and can talk sooner. Body parts tend to be one syllable in length and are easier to say then other words.

In this video, I cover the importance of teaching body parts in more detail and tips for teaching body parts: 3 simple methods. If you’ve got a Mr. Potato Head, some paper and a pencil or pen, or some creativity to come up with a song, you’re on your way. There are also many body parts songs on the internet for you to use as a resource too.

Dr. Mary Barbera. I fell into the autism world as an autism mom in 1999 when her first-born son, Lucas, was diagnosed with autism. Since then, she became a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst and best-selling author of The Verbal Behavior Approach. Since 2015, she’s created 3 autism online courses based on applied behavior analysis for professionals and “gung-ho” parents.
