The Issue of Eye Contact

As society has developed a deeper understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), we have access to more information about the issue of eye contact, much of which has come from persons with ASD who have been able to report on their experience.

Planning...Just in Case...

This series of tip sheets provides suggestions for practical plans and actions that can help ensure the safe and secure future of your child, of any age. The number of steps and the amount of work may seem overwhelming, but it’s important to begin the process and see it through, one step at a time. There is perhaps no other task that will give a parent more peace of mind.

Accessing Inclusive Personal Training Programs for Young Adults with Autism

In Canada, studies have shown that only approximately 3% of individuals with a disability are actively engaged in organized sport.


However, educators and others are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of personal fitness for students with special education needs and typically developing children alike2. And some are convinced that physical education has a central role to play in building self-esteem and social skills that in turn lead to a more active and inclusive lifestyle for young people with autism.

Gaming Console Setup and Considerations for Individuals with ASD

Congratulations! You’ve decided to make the plunge and purchase a gaming system for your (inner) child. Currently there are three popular gaming consoles: Sony PS3, Nintendo Wii (rumored to be succeeded by the Nintendo U around the 2012 holidays) and the Microsoft X-box. While each unit has its pros and cons, each unit seems to leapfrog the other year after year.

 

Developing Job Skills

Like many other parents of a youth with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), I find thoughts of the future can be positively paralyzing. To overcome that paralysis, I decided to focus on helping my son prepare for some form of work when he leaves school. The focus is not on career development, but simply to increase the options that will be available for him to make a meaningful life for himself once he leaves school.

This article provides some suggestions for other parents with similar goals, suggestions that I believe can be applied to individuals wherever they might be on the spectrum.

Case Study: Establishing Work Opportunities for Someone with ASD

My son is not one of the “stars” amongst adults with autism. His computer skills are fine, but not extraordinary. He has no special scientific aptitude. His math skills meet the needs of daily life, not the demands of technical or commercial endeavors. Yet he is happily engaged in a variety of jobs – some volunteer, others remunerative – that give structure to his life week after week. Because of them, he is a contributing, well-known, and accepted adult in our community.

Effective Home/School Communication

Communication between a student’s home and school can have a significant impact on his school program, the on-going development of skills and on the relationship between parents and teaching staff. Many parents report that they wait anxiously to read the communication book at the end of the day and that their emotional state can be considerably influenced by its content.
