Montessori and Autism: Why and How Montessori Is Ideal for Autistics

Amorette French


Does Montessori work for autistic children? Absolutely! Not only is Montessori appropriate for neurodivergent children it’s beneficial and can even play a crucial role in understanding triggers, preventing meltdowns, and laying foundations for understanding.

In what way do Montessori Method’s principles apply to autistics? How does the Montessori philosophy support an Autistic family? Do the traditional materials actually benefit an Autistic child and even help discover triggers and glimmer? What is the significance of the prepared environment? We will cover the answers to these questions and more, as well as what you can begin implementing today.
