Is there anything i can do to help autistic kids?

I know twin girls with autism and they do things every week to "help" them but its not helping... I know they can take adhd meds but i want to know if there is a way to help them calm down when they are mad. When they get mad or upset it isn't like a child but it is at the same time. The get like OCD about the problem one more then the other i just want some advise if you have it.

Read books about autism. I just read one of Temple Gradian book. It explains alot. Also there is YouTube videos you can watch.

The girls do not hit themselves or scream think some or the children i saw do. Now you got me thinking they only have ADHD and not autism they have never had a MRI or anything like... is it possible?

autistic kids get upset and mad because they can't get their feelings out they know what they're trying to do they just cant explain it like the rest of us . so the only thing you can really do is watch them read there body language and learn them as a book to better understand them so you know what it is they are trying to say ..... they're having fits because you don't understand .... when you exsplane something to them when they are having a fit. the best way tims stoo it is to draw a picture of what you are saying and show them what you mean ..... it works and they will understand a picture before you saying it to them ....

I watch a few youtube videos and they do not throw fits like that they just wont stop apologizing and they think that you hate them you will explain that love will never go away and they understand until the next time. I just want them to stop thinking about it until we are calm enough to talk to them. i will try the picture thing thank you.

we use flash cards you can get them online. they have different faces on them like a smiling face or sad face mad upset. because they can't understand emotion or your facial expressions
so we use the cards to show them how we feel when we are joking or happy sad things like that
to help them understand ... also you can give them a stress ball something they can hold in there hand to calum them down . focusing on the ball will help them listen better . I hope that helps. :)
