  • Deconstructing Describing

    Let’s start with a virtual field trip to the zoo to watch the hippos eating watermelon, using multimedia. With YouTube, we can bring entertaining videos of zoo animals to therapy sessions. The hippos, with their mouths wide open awaiting a large, whole watermelon, give us a way to build our describing skills.We can start with a basic noun phrase ...

Tomorrow is the day someone will either confirm your deepest fears or at the very least tell you this might be going on with your child. I want you to remember this — no diagnosis or label will ever change the love you have for your child. It should never shatter the dreams ...

Due to the background lighting and photographic exposure, people saw the two colors of the dress differently. For all of us who debated the colors of that dress (blue/black or white/gold), we had a ...

  • What's in a Name?

    It’s always exciting when someone gets a new communication device. It’s even more exciting when they have been waiting (because the old one broke). Yesterday, Corey brought me his brand new device to set up. He looked at the student that is working with me and said, “I’ve named this one ‘Sky.’” Corey’s last communication device was named ...

  • Emotional Intensity in Adolescence: Teaching Nuance

    Semantic gradient is the fancy term for ranking concepts along degrees of intensity -- making nuanced measurements of meaning. We use gradients in everyday casual speech. When someone asks you how you're doing, you might use gradations of neutrality, e.g., ''so-so,'' ''okay,'' ''not bad,'' ''fine,'' ''alright,'' or ''pretty good.'' Reading ...

  • Autism & SPDs: Learning From an OT

    For this blog, I consulted an Occupational Therapist (OT) with 21 years of experience in the field. I consulted Mrs. Vargas for her professional expertise on working with children that have Sensory Processing Disorders (SPDs), given her extensive experience.

  • Earlier Years of ASD

    I thought it would be interesting to explore the history of autism. What is today known as Autistic Spectrum Disorder has evolved through time and drawn so much attention because of the rising prevalence, especially across the United States. Swiss psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler first used the term ''autism'' in 1908. He used it to describe a ...

  • Learning Apps and Games for Toddlers

    During the months of January through May 2012 I wrote several posts about apps that were appropriate and recommended for young children, especially those with speech and language delays/disorders.  It's been over two years and since then I have discovered many new wonderful apps and I'm sure even more yet have been created. Today's post is ...

  • Autism and Sensory Processing Disorders: Neural Connections

    In a previous blog, I explained the differences between the symptoms of autism and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Recently, I came across an article that researched neural connections of children with autism and SPD. As cited by Bunim (2014), Pratik Mukherjee, a professor of Radiology, Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering at the University of ...
