What are the red flags re: social communication development in children with #Autism  & #specialneeds  ??

How can parents work together with the entire IEP team more smoothly, methodically, and practically, to determine starting points for remediation?

How do you know if a child is at risk for behavior/pragmatic (social) difficulty?

Is there a app that I can put on my phones and tablets to lock the volume so my daughter can't blast everyone in the room?

What does #Autism  assessment really look like from a collaborative and functional perspective? 

The Socially Speaking™ #iPad   #app  breaks down social skills components and helps the IEP pinpoint areas of strength and weakness, and starting points for remediation in a whole new way!

Finally. I've been waiting for this for years. A well-meaning organization with a history of some misguiding, Autism Speaks just got on track. They just revamped their mission statement and will stop publicly advocating for "Finding a Cure."

Autism cannot be cured. It can be addressed, compensated for, and managed. That's why intervention is so crucial, especially in the early years! That's why The Socially Speaking® Program was created!

For the first time, the nation's largest autism advocacy organization has revamped its agenda and one notable objective is no more.
