Autism Awareness Month began on Sunday, April 1. My son Doug's birthday is April 1.
The fifth annual World Autism Awareness Day was April 2. World Autism Awareness Day ''aims to increase people's awareness about people, especially children, with autism. The day often features educational events for teachers, health care workers and parents, as ...
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
Response: I like it. I
love it. I want some more of it. But, instead of calling it an iPad for
the autistic population, I think we should rename it a wePad. That is because WE ...
week, Sam asked a great question: if
I could give one single word that best describes what autism is or how it feels
to have autism, what would it be? That single word is anxiety.
This week, I
want to give you some techniques to use with people with autism to ease that
high anxiety level they suffer. And I do mean suffer. Anxiety ...

decrease frustration and behaviors, and most importantly, make the most use out

complex syndrome. I had a parent ask me just the other day if I could give them
one single word that best describes
what autism is or how it feels to have autism. I guess because you know about
autism and you've lived with it for so many years raising your son, I felt that
perhaps you ...
not make New Year's resolutions, but I do set goals for myself, and one of them
is to perpetually look for new ways to treat patients that are fun and creative
On a recent commute to
work, I was excited to hear a story on NPR's Morning Edition: ''Singing
Again.'' I immediately thought ...
the winter holiday break coming to an end, I'm mentally preparing myself for my
newest venture as a school-based SLP -- the role of a cooperating teacher! As I
had mentioned in a previous
blog, from 1/3/12 through 3/9/12, I'll have a graduate student extern.
I had also mentioned, this is a first time experience for me! ...
Now we all have our New Year resolutions. Some people want
to lose weight, others hope to get better organized and many desire to spend
more time with their families and friends. Everyone has areas of their lives
that could use some restoring and most have the instinctual need to simply
become more balanced.
For the past two years, I ...
year I have the honor to supervise a CFY clinician, and I couldn't be happier
about it. While supervision does require some extra work and scheduling
