A communication board made by his family. Not all families can afford the technology of an IPAD. I chose this because it demonstrates the genius and love of family.
Social Networking for persons with autism at Autism Hangout. Super stuff.
Toilet training a student with autism. Yes, you will probably be doing this. Remember that toilet training is a social skill, and you will probably need to make a social story in order to do it successfully. Remember patience and repetition – lots of repetition. I like this video because it is a parent, and she shows what did not work, even though it is very visual. The issue? Not the kid’s potty and not a social story.
Assisting children to communicate with an IPAD is opening a door – a TALL and WIDE door.
Making a Social Story on an IPAD – and a little girl can do it!!! I mean a “little, little girl” making it for her brother. GREAT video – and full of ideas.
A young man with autism who is a savant – with David Letterman!!! Autistic twins who are remarkable (Flo and Kay). (Video is choppy – hang in with it.) Kim Peek is “Rainman.” He has now passed. You will also have a savant in your classroom – I have had three, for sure.
