Howard County, “Emergent Literacy Ideas for Complex Learners”

October 11, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0

Emergent literacy requires a student to be an ACTIVE learner, have ways to communicate (not necessarily verbal), and have a trusting relationship with at least one person. His or her environment must provide many experiences for concept and vocabulary development, opportunities for joint mutual attention and use the learner’s preferences to make connections. Come find ways to put this all together for your student with complex needs and who may be communicating at a pre-symbolic level.

 

This presentation will discuss reasons and strategies to connect communication, object schedules, and literacy related experiences to daily routines and regular school activities. Specific attention will be given to students with sensory loss combined with physical challenges and cognitive delays. 

 

Please come with a student in mind. 

Bring a copy of his/her IEP and daily schedule!

What is bulimia?

What is bulimia?

Bulimia is not what you think It’s not uncommon for people to really misunderstand eating and body dysmorphic disorders. In all honesty, it confusion kinda makes sense. Food is necessary for survival. Why would anyone purge themselves of a perfectly good meal when there are starving people in the world, right? A slim figure is considered ideal and something to sacrifice for in order to achieve it, right? Avoiding food makes sense and it’s what were supposed to do… right? Do you see the contradiction here? This is...

You’re not just anorexic you’re human

You’re not just anorexic you’re human

You’re not just anorexic you’re human Having anorexia (or being anorexic depending how you choose to self-identify) has been described as a constant feeling of living for someone else. Indeed, being bombarded with thoughts of not meeting someone’s physical expectations or feeling the only sense of control is through controlling what you eat can feel like you are detached from yourself. It’s important though to remember the human-ness in your existence and that you too need to take care of YOU. So hug yourself. Love...

Study Raises Questions About Promising Autism Therapy

Study Raises Questions About Promising Autism Therapy by Blythe Bernhard from Disability Scoop A large clinical trial of a heralded early intervention therapy for autism shows the treatment might not be as advantageous as previously believed. Young children with autism receiving the therapy known as Early Start Denver Model, or ESDM, did show larger gains in language skills compared to children given other behavior therapies, according to the study published recently in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent...

Haircut Tips for Autistic Children

Haircut Tips for Autistic Children As many of us know taking our children for a hair cut can be difficult. Between the fidgeting and the normal short patience of many young children it can take some planning and sometimes some bribing (lol) to make it through a session. Take a look at this touching article about how to help sensitive autistic children, and their parents, cope with the stress of getting a hair cut. by FINDINGCOOPERSVOICE I can think of a lot of struggles that Cooper and I have had over the years. He is autistic and nonverbal....

Autism speech. Speech-language support for autistic high school students

Autism speech. Speech-language support for autistic high school students I’m not sure about you guys, but every year around IEP time I have the same conversation with school staff. Years ago it started with “well, Seth’s speech skills won’t get any better so let’s reduce the speech therapy”. Believe it or not, the conversation turned into “well, his speech skills have improved so much let’s reduce the speech therapy”. Doesn’t make any sense does it? I guess the speech therapy that...

3 month rule and dating… and autism. Just wait new parents.

From Autism with a Side of Fries The Three Month Rule Enjoy this delightfully personal shout out from Eilleen Shaklee to new autism parents and how they should approach behaviors both good and bad Today I was interviewed by a graduate student who was doing research on autism, parenting, and all that jazz.  One of his last questions was “What would you tell a new to autism family or just any family that maybe just needed some inspiration?” So I told him the secret of my sanity. (No, it’s not wine.) It’s wait three...

“Community-based” gets a new definition. New expectations. Is there new money?

“Community-based” gets a new definition. New expectations. Is there new money?

“Community-based” gets a new definition. Is there new money?? You come in to work the 3p-11p shift at a job you love. As you enter the house you can kinda guess how the day went by the smell. A pine scent could  mean there’s been a mess that needed to be cleaned up. Food smells could mean we’re on schedule but maybe a little too early since John, with hand-over-hand help, was supposed to help support staff make dinner. You roll your eyes because you worked all last week with John to make dinner and you’re...

Financial planning across the autism spectrum

Financial planning across the autism spectrum

by Collin Meeks from Maryland Financial Advocates Financial planning across the autism spectrum We've previously talked about ableism and the assumption that having a disability or mental illness means you're a less capable person. Not only that, ableism can also come from being misguided and take the form of pity. Feeling sorry for someone because they are mentally or physically atypical. If we have learned nothing Seth, we've learned not to make assumptions or feel sorry for him. When he was 5 and started school teaching staff assumed he...

Dual Disorders: My Experience With Bipolar And Borderline Personality Disorders

by Kait Mauro International Bipolar Foundation Dual Disorders: My Experience With Bipolar And Borderline Personality Disorders When I first started writing for International Bipolar Foundation, it was a coming out of sorts about my mental illness. I was open about it with the people in my life, on social media and on my own blog, but it wasn’t until I started writing for IBPF that, if you Google searched my name, you would find information about my bipolar disorder. Potential employers who did would see the articles I had written and know...
