Autism: Expressions of a non-verbal child

What are you silently telling everyone?

Your non-verbal body language speaks loud and clear. From the driver who aggressively flipped the bird at the car in front of me, to the very subtle tweak of an eyebrow by the person eavesdropping on a conversation… What are you silently telling everyone? I might even suggest that non-verbal communication is more effective than […]

See Things Differently

Some of you know we have a non-verbal grandson on the spectrum and that I often substitute in autism classrooms. Last month I had the pleasure of observing children with autism […]

It just so happened to be my regular volunteer shift at the Raleigh-Durham Airport Center, so I got to partake of the cake while I assisted the guests that passed through. Some of you may never have heard of the USO. Many of you […]

We must have hope

Meltdown or tantrum?

I must say, I had never heard of the word “meltdown” until I started working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I suppose that was almost ten years ago. At that time I heard it strictly used to describe the uncontrollable acting out brought on by massive frustration at not being able to communicate with […]

The Voiceless

It has been a few years since I have lost my voice, due to cold or allergies. However, that is indeed the scenario I find myself in this week. It can be very frustrating. I mentioned to Jim that it’s difficult to be the voice of authority when you have no voice. He reminded me […]

Sharing is caring

I’m sure many of you have heard the phrase, “sharing is caring.”  My granddaughter introduced me to that phrase when she was about three.  Of course, she usually said it when taking something away from her younger brother.  It seemed appropriate to her at the time – chuckle.    As she has gotten older (all of […]
