I would like to share information with readers and followers regarding the availability of two separate research studDocumentsies for children with autism and/or their parents. Participation in on-going research is important to help push the field along in our understanding of autism, behavioral challenges, and ways to support and/or intervene.

The first study is looking at ACT which is a behaviorally-based method of therapy. This study is for a student’s doctoral dissertation. ACT Parenting Workshop Flyer – Summer

The second study is being conducted by Rebecca Landa from Kennedy Kreiger.

I came across this link on one of my news feeds. It is super cool that the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta in conjunction with Delta Airlines are doing this!

WingsforAutismI have written about travel tips before. If you are interested, you can read them here and here. I have also published a piece on traveling with autism in the Autism File (2012, July).

And obviously this is great news just in time for some spring break and all summer travel plans! Happy traveling!!

We came across a new video about autism recovery that we are excited about! One of our parents actually found it first. When the mom talked about it, I just assumed it was another CARD video as they have been the predominant leaders in this area. Interestingly, it was not from CARD but rather a professionally produced video from UCONN!

We have been a fan of Dr. Fein since we first learned that she studied children on the spectrum. See one of our previous posts here. She is not a behavior analyst but rather a licensed clinical psychologist. She is not in the business of ABA but rather a professor in clinical psychology. You can read more about her here.

So…..now for the video. We hope it inspires you as much as it does us!

It’s Fridaaaaaaaaaaaaay! I don’t know about you all but Friday was a long time coming. We look forward to Fridays around here for many reasons:boy hitting

  1. Friday happy hours
  2. Sleep in on Saturday
  3. Pizza night (doesn’t everyone do pizza night on Friday?)
  4. And Friday Funnies on the ABS Blog!

So we have been writing down all the funny things our kids say. We will share some of them with our readers. For today:

“John” was having a difficult morning in his class. He engaged in a few aggressive behaviors towards the behavior therapist (BT). The BT suggested that John step in the hall so as not to disrupt his peers. At that time, the supervising BCBA walked down the hall and saw John aggressing toward the BT. When John saw the BCBA, he began aggressing to the BCBA. The BCBA blocked the behaviors as planned. After a great deal of blocking, John stopped his aggression, looked at the BCBA and said, “You’ve got nice moves!”

Do you have any funny Kid Quotes to share?

inclusionI am so excited to be in Dubai! I came to consult on a few feeding cases and The Child Learning and Enrichment Medical Center quickly planned for a conference on inclusion! Schools in Dubai are required to include children with disabilities so teachers are in need of information. I feel so fortunate to be a part of it! For my international readers, I look forward to meeting you in person.
