Video of the Week: Uniquely Human by Dr. Barry Prizant

In this week’s featured video, we hear from noted ASD researcher and clinician, Dr. Barry Prizant, who discusses some of the challenges faced by individuals with autism and alternative ways to understand and address these challenges. He places a high priority on understanding the perspective of individuals with autism and their families, something that can be a powerful force for change in our service delivery. “There’s no such thing as autistic behavior; It’s all human behavior.” There are lots of prAACtical implications of this perspective and the focus on reflective practices. Enjoy, “Uniquely Human: A Different Way to See Autism and Create Pathways to Success.” Thanks to Presence Learning for producing and hosting this video.

Video of the Week: Narrative Skills in Students with ASD

As much as we love working with beginning communicators and helping to create a solid foundation of early language, it’s also important for SLPs to be skilled in building higher level language skills. In this post, we hear from Dr. Paola Colozzo, assistant professor in the Audiology and Speech Science at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Our video today is from UBC’s Centre for Interdisciplinary Research and Collaboration in Autism (CIRCA) and provides a wonderful overview of narrative skills and intervention for people with autism.

Video of the Week: Communication Supports for Problem Behavior with Dr. Pat Mirenda

Last month, it was such a great honor to host Dr. Pat Mirenda at the UM-NSU Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD). As some of you know, she was the presenter at our annual Issues in Autism Conference, and also was kind enough to record a shorter version of the presentation for the CARD eLearning site, CARD VINE. You can view that presentation below, and get the handout for it here.

Video of the Week: SGDs for People with ASD

To wrap up Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month, we turn to the Autism Internet Modules, created by the National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders. Ellen Franzone introduces us to a comprehensive look at SGDs and their application with people who have ASD. You may have to register to access the site, but the information is worth the extra effort. Also, don’t miss the downloadable resources, such as this SGD Implementation Checklist.     Direct Link: http://www.autisminternetmodules.org/mod_intro.php?mod_id=35 Franzone, E., & Collet-Klingenberg, L.
