Today's webinar will feature an overview on The Miller Method which is a Cognitive Developmental method of teaching children with Autism. A unifying thread between our three presenters will be the use of systems, development and expansion which are unique to the Miller Method®.

Dr. Stephen Shore will begin with a 10-15min presentation on Miller Method, focusing on the theoretical underpinnings.

Ms. Carol Hilliard will continue with a 10-15min presentation of Miller Method in the Classroom; System development.

Ms. Rebecca Sperber will speak 10-15min, as a parent/professional and her experience with her son Benny. How Miller Method has helped her son, her observations on systems use and its value.

Questions and Answers will take place after each presentation and at the end of the hangout.

I have the chance to educate my administration about high functioning Aspergers in Women.
Although, I am not shy about sharing that I have Aspergers with others they do not "believe" it.
I am intuitive, http://wrongplanet.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=189669&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0.
I have studied faces and posture long enough to know how to read and work with students and the NTs in my building think that I am NT as a result.
Can you suggest readings you all suggest articles / videos etc. that offer discourse about high-functioning women with Asperger's, please?
I need them by Monday night.
Thank you in advance.

Everyday Aspie might be a good place to start, not only is it written by a successful aspie woman it also has an unofficial checklist of female aspie traits which is very accurate. Good luck.

It is a whisper

"It is a whisper of Winter now,
at the end of Autumn
with leaves still falling;
their gentle rustle on the ground,
bright colours catching the sun,
rain beating them to a patchwork.

As the wind changes, the air cools,
and one morning you go out to see
every leaf edged in glittering frost,
your breath speaking ahead of you."

Here's my latest blog.
Hearing that autism cannot be cured is a bomb for families at the moment of diagnosis. On the other hand, learning that we can make a difference is the first step on the path to acceptance. This me…

I am afraid.

"Denying fear is counter-productive because it tends to let other feelings and behaviours come through instead. Stress reactions are always going to run higher if you haven't admitted to your conscious self that you are afraid - you feel the fear running underneath as a background emotion, making your mind and body think it is in imminent danger from an unknown threat. Far better to admit the fear, see it there, staring at you, lurking in the room, waiting as you leave, watching as you step and know it for what it is."

My son is diagnosed as CP and he is nonverbal. I felt that he himself wrote this poem. I am very thankful to you to convey the emotions of these children with special needs.

-Vidiyal Rehabilitation Center

They thought I had no voice
And thus they took away my choice
I may not make use of speech
But communication is not beyond reach
I share my world by another way
If only persons could see that this is okay
I may share a smile
Or a pleasant giggle every once in awhile
And when I am overwhelmed or in need
I hope that some may give heed
That I am not being 'bad'
I have simply tried to convey my need with what I had

Dan L. Edmunds, Ed.D.

+morag donnachie, I took your advice about the e-book. I ordered one for each of the persons involved, $3 USD, to be delivered on the day we are supposed to speak.
I also have created this presentation trying to explain my quirks.
In the meantime, I will read the e-book and add an appendix to the presentation for suggested passages to read from it.
I know they probably won't look at all of this, but now
I feel better knowing that I am employing my 'Aspie drive ' to what I can say instead of deploying it for making sure they even are going to listen. I hope that makes sense. Thanks for the advice.

He sees you.

"That Santa man, he has no hands,
no hands at all, has claws instead,
and slips them in his pockets so,
and keeps them sharp and keen and low,
and when he walks he swishes past,
and when he climbs he's very fast."

Dear All:

This is long I apologize but I need your advice and I want you to have as much information as possible in order to do so,

As an Aspie, I need a routine and I don't 'get' sarcastic humor.

I know this and am not shy about telling people that I am an Aspie with these needs.

But there is a person that I work with that cannot pass up the chance to antagonize me.

i shared my Aspie result chart with him but he dismissed it with a statement that he could answer the same questions and get the same result.

I had my routine of coming into the teacher's lounge, warming my break fast and checking my snail mailbox.

I don't like eating food that I have not prepared myself and I know that microwaves mutagenize food so I use a toaster oven all the time.

I believe that fish is brain food (learned from Agatha Christie's Poirot) so I usually warm some smoked salmon and gnosh on my 'naked bagel' while i teach my first class.

I also use the toaster oven to prepare my lunch in the lounge. I am Carribean so my meals are curries and such and I often share my lunch with a student.

However, this one person has constantly complained about my fish while others rave that it smells like bacon.

He says that my lunch smells are offensive to him, but he also has said that he is quoting some John Candy movie when some character refers to the smell of good food as 'garbage' and then another time asking me for nearly a week when I would bring food for him to try. I cannot tell if he is being sarcastic of truthful about how my food offends him.

When i ask to use things in his space (the library) he replies that I will need to 'pay' for that.

He even went as to say I should lend him my scooter ( which I ride because I don't like to drive my car in case I have a petite mal) while I ride his '10 speed' to work so he could use my scooter when he went to the Grand Canyon.

When I tried to reduce my conversations with him to simple yes / no questions (I like to take my students to the library to work once a week), he even told one of my students that she could not get a piece of equipment she asked for until "I was nicer to him".

I tried to avoid speaking to him altogether and just to other staff in the library with the same yes / no questions for clarification about the use of space and materials.

When I made a mistake on the sign up sheet for the library and tried to fix it so that my students could still get to use the space, another librarian said not even under her breath "why does she get to do whatever she wants" so I know that he is besmirching my name with them as well.

Last week, he went to my observing principal and complained about me.

She called me into her office and told me that my yes / no question technique was passive aggressive and that I could no longer use my toaster oven and prepare my food in what is supposed to be the Teacher's Lounge.

I think that this is wrong but she is my observing principal and I am on a formal observation year. I was so stunned by this announcement that my stomach literally turned during the meeting and I threw up after it.

I did not think this type of bullying happened in the adult world. I have moved my toaster oven out of the Teacher's lounge and set it up in my classroom.

I have stopped taking my students to the Media Center, but i don't think that it is fair to them. It is a beautiful space with natural light that I cannot offer them in my classroom.

What should I do? About him? About her?

You might have to go higher or over your boss of that school to the District of the school and talk to the person that handles that school you work at. Let them know you are autistic and that ur a teacher there and your problem .and that its making hard to work there and if the problem not fix you can sue. Or have a week or month at your school talking about what is autism and have people come in and talk to them and the students. And you make a play snd have student act out something oh what going on with you in a student way of life . and see if this helps.

The shifting light of Autumn.

"The brown-haired boy wakes slowly in the grass,
His eyes squinting in the sun and turns
To bend the trees, to bring
The dark, overnight rain.
Chases summer-soft petals from gentle flowers,
Trusts in the redness, rich and deep,
Of berries bringing colour to his cheeks."

The terminology used for an intense episode of challenging behaviour that may be displayed by Autistic children and young people can vary wildly according to the ethos and values of those witnessing it. An accepted term seems to be Meltdown (but please correct me if i’m wrong).
