This is true with all kids. If you are a good role model, then the type of behavior or attitude a child learns from you should be a good one also. Treat kids the way you want to be treated and act in a manner that is polite. Showing kids respect will get you respect in return. Reinforcing bad behavior will only make it seem right. Children with Autism are often more impressionable than children without Autism who are the same age.
