Even though this video is a few years old now, I always recommend parents and anyone who works with people with autism to watch it. This is one woman with autism's view of why she isms and it is so beautifully translated (she speaks through typing). I love how she alludes to the fact that typically speaking people are the ones with deficits because we only talk to other people, while she in contrast, communicates with her whole environment. Watch it, and share it with everyone who works with your child!
The founder of Inspired Spectrums shares her tips and experiences in working with children and adults with autism. Word of caution: she is occasionally sentimental and this is often reflected in her blogs :)
