Inside voice

I feel like I'm constantly shushing Gage and reminding him to use his "inside voice" and he has also been getting frowny faces at school for being too loud (on his behavior chart). Any new/fun ideas for practicing/reinforcing appropriate voice volume??

We have to remind Chase all the time to use his inside voice so I can relate to this one. I love Janice's comment and will have to try this. Children on the spectrum are very visual and they see the world around them differently than other kids. So I love the visual of that. Thanks Janice!

I'll have to try that. It's also a bit tricky getting him to focus on me in order to convey that he's being loud. On the bright side, he's the BEST present opener ever!!! Always super excited to receive a gift....gotta love it!

I can identify with that one! With my son, if we "shushed" him or told him to use his inside voice, it's almost like he "fed off it". We just started putting our finger to our mouth with one hand and used our other hand, palm down and pretended like we were pushing something down. Most of our kids respond well to signing because there is no auditory input.
