Do you dread taking your child with ASD to the dentist? Is a trip to get a hair-cut out of the question?

Try using the '3 P's': Pretend, Practice, & Pair to take the sting out of necessary outings. With a little time and preparation, kids of all ages and skill levels can learn to tolerate these and many other difficult activities.

1) Pretend:  Start with acting out the challenging situation on a regular basis.  Get a toy dentist or doctor kit and take turns with your child pretending to be the doctor/patient or dentist/patient.  Recruit siblings, favorite stuffed animals, or family members to join in the fun.  Make a visual schedule to use during the play-acting so that you can use it for the actual activity later. 

2) Practice: How often does your child go into the dentist's office? Probably when he has an appointment, right?  Generally these visits are few enough that the situation feels unfamiliar and possibly has negative connotations from a previous (sometimes traumatic) experience.  Talk to the office about visiting a few times leading up to a regular appointment.  Have the child interact with the receptionist, meet the doctor or hair-stylist, and sit in the chair or lie down on the table.  Familiarity can make the experience more understandable and less scary for a child.


3) Pair: Your child may be associating a trip to the doctor with a painful shot or a hair-cut with loud clippers.  During the practice phases, start pairing the visit with something more pleasurable that he only gets to have while the appointment is going on.  For instance, bring a favorite book or character and let the child hold it while sitting in the dentist chair and then remove it when you have the child get out of the chair.  Or let the child play a preferred Ipad game while you acclimate them to the clippers noise and then remove the game when you turn the clippers off.  Your child will start to associate the dentist, doctor, or hair-cut with a much more fun activity.

The 3 P's can be modified to improve your child's experience with any challenging, infrequent activity like getting a picture with Santa, going on an airplane, or whatever!  

For more information or assistance on making a specific activity easier for you and your child, please contact A Child's Potential, Inc. through the contact page on our website or visit us on Facebook.

All children can learn.

All children's potential is unlimited.

Believe that your child can handle new experiences. Condition him of what will going to happen. Show him your support and do not leave his side. Make him comfortable in the area. It could be a little challenging but you'll be happy to see the outcome once he has overcome it. I have seen it to my nephew and I'm happy with the confidence he has developed through time.

Dental care is considered a daunting task; however it has always been a part of personal hygiene. Maintaining good oral health should be done by every individual. It is not enough to say that you brush your teeth regularly. Brushing alone won't be able to guarantee you that your mouth is getting the best care possible. In fact, Dr. Nigel Carter of the British Dental Health Foundation explained that only 60 percent of the total tooth surface is cleaned through brushing. On the other hand, based on the Adult Dental Health Survey which was conducted in March 2011, although 75 percent of adults brush their teeth at least two times a day, only 22 percent of them use dental floss. Read on and find out more on how you can take care of your teeth and gums at home and with the help of dental professionals.
