Spend time with your child: you’ll need to come down to his/her level, spend time with him/her and show interest in what he/she is interested in.
Appreciate your child's ability: Be on the lookout for things to praise in him/her for.
Encourage a wide range of interest: by all means, encourage your child to develop interest in different aspect, also, encourage his/her creativity by doing creative activities with him/her and by sharing ideas.
Never ridicule your child: you should never make fun of him/her just because he/she is different to others, either in his/her behavior or interest.
Acknowledge your child's ability: This will help your child to grow in confidence and be more prepared to tackle other things that he/she might not be good at.
Encourage your child to set target for himself: This will help him to develop an “aim higher” attitude to life.
