The predictable structure of daily routines is also helpful for young children on the autism spectrum. Because routines generally happen in the same way every day, their predictable steps provide an excellent opportunity for learning new things. Repetition is key for learning, and children benefit from hearing, seeing, and doing the same things over and over again. When parents and caregivers use words during the repetitive steps in their daily routines, children learn the language that describes events in their everyday lives.
