ABSTRACT

This study investigated the current status of self-care abilities in children with autism in the first, second, and third grades. A questionnaire survey was used to investigate the current status of self-care abilities in children with autism attending a special education school in Beijing. The survey covered seven aspects of self-care abilities: drinking, eating, dressing, toilet, hygiene, home life, and safety. Data obtained were analyzed using SPSS to analyze the impact of gender, grade, and the severity of the disorder on self-care abilities. There is no difference in self-care abilities among children with autism across different genders and grades. However, there is a significant difference in self-care abilities among severity of the disorder (p<0.001). For children with autism, especially those were moderate to severe, improving self-care abilities is challenging. In the adaptation education, it is necessary to carry out targeted educational activities based on the severity of the disorder.
