''This is my son, Blain. It was taken a couple of years ago. He rarely smiles in pictures or in life, so I appreciate this picture.'' (Copied from a post on Facebook 1-3-13, from the mother of a young man with ASD.) There was a picture of Blain (fictitious name) with a semi-smile that accompanied this post and I could feel the love and joy ...
Who knows bullying better than those who are bullied? The last two week's blogs for Autism Spectrum Disorders, ''Bullying in ASD'' and ''The Vocabulary of Bullying'' have dealt with an overview of bullying and the words that people with ASD need to know that deal with bullying.
Now, the words/vocabulary you need from one on the other end of ...
When do you elicit a
language sample? Certainly when you first see a child you would want to take a
language sample. However, if the child is not comfortable on the initial
assessment, there is nothing written in stone that says that it has to be
completed the first time around. That in itself should tell you something.

Dear Kathie: ''My question concerns
Julie, who is a middle school student with ASD. She is bright, verbal, possibly
Asperger's, and is included in the regular classroom for most academics. The
problem is that she refuses to do any written classroom assignments when the
other students are doing theirs. She says ''No,'' lays her head on her ...
to Include in a Language Sample, Pt. I,'' I expressed how important I feel a language sample is to complete an
assessment for a verbal child or adult on the autism spectrum. I told you what

adult with ASD? If so, what do you look for and how do you elicit the
conversation?'' - Adrian, speech-language pathologist
My Response: Thank you for asking
about the assessment aspect for a child/adult with ASD. I feel there are three ...
In last week's blog post, ''The iPad Becomes a wePad for Autism,''
I encouraged you to develop a relationship between the iPad, the child and another
person, rather than letting the child with autism treat it as a ''thing.''
Let's call that
with the iPad. That's when we can turn it into a wePad and make those applications come
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 ...
Dear Kathie: I know that autism (ASD) is a
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 ...
I've blogged about many of the
presenters, their platforms, programs, ideas, and sessions that I was privileged
to meet, greet, and learn from at ASHA 2011. I scampered up and down the aisles
of the exhibit hall seeking new ideas, books, electronics, and freebies. I
reminisced with seasoned SLP friends and I felt renewed to ...
