Activity: “Sharing Hobbies”. (Activity to teach autistic young people to speak in public)


This material, aimed at autistic children and youth, focuses on teaching communication skills through the activity ‘Sharing Hobbies’. It begins with a talk on the importance of public speaking, addressing how this skill is useful in various aspects of life such as personal expression, school, social situations, and future work environments. The youngsters choose a hobby to share, practice in pairs, and then present to the group, using a structured guide. Attentive listening, constructive feedback are encouraged, and the activity concludes with a group reflection. Additionally, support materials such as note cards and visual aids are provided. The explanation, adapted for autistic youth, emphasizes that public speaking is a skill that improves with practice, encouraging them to share their thoughts and listen to others, all in an environment of support and mutual understanding.
