Touching Head and Lack of Eye Contact
In this clip a therapist works on building Sajid's ability to follow a simple command, 'touch your head.' The skill is taught by repeated practice of the command with some support from the therapist (e.g. pushing Sajod's arms upwards), followed by a small reward. Notably, Sajid makes almost no eye contact with his therapist throughout their work together, another warning sign of autism.
