Parties: How to Make Communication a Piece of Cake for Kids with Autism https://www.autismparentingmagazine.com/communication-hand…/
This has been helpful with my own 4 year old who has been finding her emotions a little overwhelming.
If you are looking for a way to explain autism to your child's classmates, this article gives you some idea of how and also includes a few free resources you can download.
What are your tips?
I wanted to share the document I made for Ellie's transition meeting to gen-ed preschool.
Her team LOVED IT!! I followed the direction of the Person-Centered P...lanning / One Page Profile that the amazing Org FACT trains parents on!
I'm going to link the Person-Centered Plan info from FACT below, as well as a video on inclusion that I just watched this week and it gave me so much confidence and hope. Also more info on the site I used to create this document.💗
I'm SO LUCKY to have fellow parents to lean on who have been there before me, and the parents who are embarking on this adventure after me. Grateful is the only word I can think of right now!
UPDATE: here is a blog post with how I created this document: https://our3lilbirds.blogspot.com/…/how-to-make-one-page-pr…
An introduction to autism that aims to raise awareness among young non-autistic audiences, to stimulate understanding and acceptance in future generations. It i...s intended to be viewed, discussed and shared widely by anyone but especially teachers and parents.
Back to basics....
I have a child with ASD and believe an autism unit in every school is a basic must have along with trained tutors
Great free visual resources to help address teach puberty.
This looks like a useful resource for adults to develop communication skills.
OUT NOW: How to start, carry on and end conversations - by Paul Jordan
Do you know someone who has trouble making friends, or struggles to know what to say to s...tart a conversation?
Paul Jordan, who is on the autism spectrum, explains how to make sense of everyday social situations you might encounter at school, university or other group settings. Using just 65 simple words, the book helps you create 'scripts for thinking' that break conversations down into small chunks and help you to think of what to say.
Ami Klin, director of Yale University's autism program, described females with autism as "research orphans". For years autism was seen as primarily a male diso...rder. Researchers are now asking whether girls with ASD are going undiagnosed, especially those at the high-functioning end of the spectrum.
We would like to include as many girls as possible in our registry so that we can shed more light on autism in girls and women. If you know anyone living in Kildare or Wicklow that has a girl with autism, please encourage them to get in touch with our research team. They can ring 01-8962144, email email@example.com or message us here on the Facebook page.
Lots of great activities and language learning opportunities within those activities.
This looks interesting...For those looking to develop their skills and is free.
