ASD Kids Face Numerous Challenges During Early School Years
[Source: Psych Central] New research suggests young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are less likely to develop positive relationships with their teachers than typically developing kids do.

SLP Corner: "Snow" Much Fun
[Source: Doyle Speech Works] It seems this week the snow was falling across the entire nation. Snow in Tennessee, Oregon, and Louisiana. Everywhere, except right here in New Hampshire.

Autism Corner: Why an Inclusive Classroom isn’t the Best Fit for my Autistic Daughter
[Source: Washington Post] "I wish I got to spend more time with Charlotte,” the teacher told me with a slight frown. “It’s hard for her to make friends when she’s not here very much.” We were sitting at a child-sized table, perched awkwardly on small blue plastic chairs. It was parent-teacher conference day, and I shivered a little in the unheated classroom. I smiled at her because I knew she meant well, but I didn’t need a reminder about how va...
