My Experience with Autism

Tune in for this unusual presentation on autism by someone with autism. Animal Science professor Temple Grandin, who designs livestock handling facilities, discusses the value of early intervention in autism, and about medications. Other topics include her sensory sensitivities and how she manages them, how she and other autistic people think, and social relationships and careers. Series: “MIND Institute Lecture Series on Neurodevelopmental Disorders” [6/2007] [Health and Medicine] [Show ID: 12868]

Question by Natasha: How to state my thesis of Autism and it’s social deficits?
I’m having the hardest time getting started on my essay. The essay is going to be concern the social deficits in those with autism. I’ve talked to my professor, and I don’t want to make her think I’m slacking off since I have to have work associated with the thesis on Thursday.

Any help, or even a good nudge in the right direction would be especially appreciated.

I do not see autism as having any more social deficits than any other child. Every child is born with certain instincts, and reflexes, and autistic children are no different. From then on, EVERY child that was ever born needs to be taught social skills. The lack is not in the autistic child, it is in the adults around the child who have not figured out a way to reach that particular child. Please use the word challenges, not deficits. Thank you.

Question by Hänk: How to deal with a college classmate who has Asperger’s syndrome?
I have a college classmate who has Asperger’s. She frequently butts right into conversations and says, “So what are you guys talking about?” She also comes up to me (and others) and starts talking about completely random things. Oftentimes she neglects to give the subject of her monologue, leaving me to hold up my hands and say “Whoa whoa whoa, what/whom are you talking about?”

be patient, is more difficult for them then it is to you. I also have a student who suffers from asperger;s in my class. Just stick it out until the course is over and try to be nice, you might feel better inside.

Einstein, Asperger and Academic Failure

Einstein, Asperger and Academic Failure

A meditation on the discourse around whether Einstein “failed” in school or not. Both sides of the debate are missing a bigger picture around who Einstein was. I also sound a note of warning for those who seek to aspire to be the “next Einstein.”

Question by Beca S: Is there someone that has aspergers or a family member with aspergers?
Is there someone that has asperger’s or a family member with aspergers that would be willing to answer 15 questions for a school social science research assignment?

Everything is anonymous and none of the questions are too specific or personal!

If there is anyone willing to answer the questions please let me know!!

Or I can post them here if people prefer…

Thanks!

Girl With Autism & Katy Perry Duet – ‘Firework’

Girl With Autism & Katy Perry Duet - 'Firework'

Girl With Autism & Katy Perry Duet – ‘Firework’ Subscribe to Hollywire | bit.ly Send Chelsea a Tweet! | bit.ly Follow Hollywire! | bit.ly Katy Perry performs live on stage with a talented little girl — in support of autism, and it’s pretty darn inspiring! It’s always so amazing to see celebrities doing good — and this story I found to be quite motivational. A little girl named Jodi has struggled with autism her whole life and expresses herself through music. In a performance from “Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs” — Jodi is joined onstage by her idol, Katy Perry, as they do a little duet to “Firework” After the performance, Katy tweeted about her experience and how inspired she was by it. So what do you think about this performance? And also while KP is known for writing inspirational music, which of her songs do you relate to most!?!

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that one in 88 children in the United States has been diagnosed with autism, a developmental brain disorder that the CDC also reports is five times more common in boys than girls. VOA’s Melinda Smith reports that research shows that intensive behavioral therapy can help autistic children make significant improvements if they are treated early. New approaches are being used to diagnose and treat this still-mysterious disorder.
