Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with a person who identifies as autistic and their negative self talk? I love emerging myself in all the theory and latest ideas surrounding supporting these individuals, but I am a teacher and I only see my autistic students sometimes. How can we address negative self talk? It's hard to even get out of defense mode if a student is shutting down everything I say (I know they take it in...and we build trust...I just think their negative self talk overrides my positive encouragement sometimes). Thanks!
