Autismsupportnetwork.com: Thank you for paving the way

Autismsupportnetwork.com: Thank you for paving the way

Cathy Blatnik

One of the most important things I have learned the longer I “travel,” down this Autism “road,” is that you need the support of a mom that has racked up a few more “miles,” than you.

I met my friend, Mary, and in turn, her adult son, when I became a Board member of the Mid-Michigan Autism Association almost two years ago. It took us just a short amount of time before we

Scottbarrykaufman.com: Rethinking Autism: From Social Awkwardness to Social Creativity

Share this:

Rethinking autism requires understanding the experience of autism, and seeing beyond the unconventional social behaviors to see who they really are, and what they can really offer. We’d be remiss if we didn’t build off the strengths that already exist among those with ASD. This research is not only revolutionizing how we view ASD, but also how we treat anyone who thinks differently.

Upi.com: Study explains hospitalization odds for autistic youth

FRIDAY, June 16, 2017 — Having a mood disorder significantly boosts the odds that young people with autism will be hospitalized for psychiatric care, according to a new study.

People with autism are often hospitalized when their behavior problems overwhelm their caregivers, the study authors said.

“The demand is far greater than the number of clinicians, the number of programs and the number of beds we have,” said study leader Giulia Righi. She is

Thestar.com: Gifted children must be nurtured

Re: What it truly means to be gifted, Opinion, June 12

What it truly means to be gifted, Opinion, June 12

I’m writing in response to professor Richard Hoshino’s ill-informed piece regarding giftedness, which seems to be predicated upon his viewing of one recent Hollywood film.

As the father of a gifted learner, I’ve had a very steep learning curve since my daughter’s assessment. This has brought to light not only the neural anatomical differences present in gifted

Stuff.co.nz: Dr Lance O'Sullivan: It was when my daughter got sick that I realised how important immunisation is

Dr Lance O’Sullivan speaks and performs a haka at a screening of the anti vaccination film Vaxxed in Kaitaia.

It was 1996 and we were young parents. I was at medical school when I came upon an anti-immunisation pamphlet left in one of our lecture theatres.

I was suspicious of the establishment at the time. You need to understand, I had grown up a welfare-dependent “half-caste” (I hate that term) boy living with his mother, escaping from
