Has it really been thirteen years since the turn of the century? Young children who were diagnosed with autism in 2000 are now in their teens. Teens who were dealing with autism in 2000 are now adults. Perhaps you, as an SLP, were just worrying about how the new century was going to affect your computer at this time some thirteen years ago.

Dear Kathie: ''Chad is 5 years

there is a loud noise, such as a fire alarm, or even when he anticipates a loud
noise, like a balloon that he thinks may pop. How can I help him, his classroom

Dear Kathie: What are your
thoughts on using an iPad with the autistic population?'' - Mary, speech-language pathologist and
parent of a child with autism

the autistic population, I think we should rename it a wePad. That is because WE ...

here on out for the sake of convenience) has been with me for two weeks now.
