Why happiness is the key to improving success for autistic people

Updated: Feb 20

Do the autistic people you support and care for seem happy? If not, there could be a reason... We all want children and adults on the autism spectrum to be happy and successful. Autism doesn't have to mean a life of unhappiness. Happiness goes beyond feeling good...’s also about leading a life of meaning and purpose. Meaningful activities can be one of the best ways to give autistic people a sense of purpose and meaning in their lives. This can create more happiness, life satisfaction, and mental calmness. And how do you create an environment that gives them this? One way is by giving them activities or interests which are meaningful to them. For others, it may be talking about their special interests to someone, or just listening quietly to music through headphones. Each person is unique. What makes one person happy can differ from the next. That’s why it’s so important to create the right environment and supports where they can explore their true selves, while learning at a pace that works best for them. You can boost your autism support skills today with our accredited online training courses tailored for parents, professionals and autistic individuals.
