  • The Gluten Free/Casein Free Diet and ASD

    Gluten Free/Casein Free (GFCF) Diet is an alternative treatment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Alternative medicine is any practice that is put forward as having the healing effects of medicine. However, it is not based on evidence gathered using the scientific method. There has been little research conducted to support that the ...
  • Screening for Autistic Spectrum Disorder and your Pediatrician

    Often times when I meet a family that has a child with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), especially when the child is over 24 months and non-verbal, I wonder a few things: was the child ever screened? Why was the child not identified as high risk or red flagged for ASD by their pediatrician? Did the pediatrician screen the child but ...
  • Sensory Friendly Film Screenings

    Sensory Friendly Films emerged in 2007, when a Maryland parent took her young daughter to a matinee. The parent picked an early showing because she assumed there would be fewer people. When her seven year-old daughter saw her favorite actor she began to flap her hands, dance, and jump up and down. Unfortunately other audience members complained ...
  • Continuum of Cultural Competence

    In reading the article, ''Interdisciplinary Assessment of Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder,'' the section on cultural competence drew my attention. Prelon, Beatson, Bitner, Broder & Ducker (2003) describe cultural competence as a continuum. Prelong et al. describe the bottom of the continuum as destructiveness. In this phase, the ...

  • Pragmatics in the Middle School Setting

    In the middle school setting, targeting pragmatic skills are an important part of therapy when treating children with Asperger Syndrome, a form of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Targeting pragmatic skills can help prepare your student for the much larger and more social setting of high school. The school setting lends itself to potential activities ...

  • Communicating "Red Flags" to Families

    Have you ever been asked by a parent if you think their child has autism? I have encountered this, within the context of early intervention, with a number of families. I had the pleasure of working with a child whose father was an active participant and very involved in the sessions. He had concerns about his daughter's language delays. However, ...

    For those readers that are joining us new this week, PSHA is the Pennsylvania Speech-Language-Hearing Association. The organization conducted a survey geared towards SLPs and audiologists in February 2012, and the results were recently released.

  • A Lack of Autism Training

    To date, my graduate student extern (referred to as ''student teacher'' from here on out for the sake of convenience) has been with me for two weeks now. I'm hoping she has learned a lot so far, as I know I have learned things from her already. Having a student teacher really has caused me to do some self-reflecting on my own therapy and ...
