I just wanted to share my latest post, our little Joel got his Wish from Make a Wish
would love for you to pop by and share in his joy!
I just attended an Autism/Aspergers conference on 5/13. It was great. Temple Grandin was a featured speaker. I came away with a lot of great ideas for my 12 year old stepson (who has high functioning Autism).
I recently wrote a blog post about the different types of thinkers that Temple talks about.
We also learned about the new Temple Grandin school that will be starting soon in Boulder, CO.
I have found that most often the ability to handle dual diagnosis is not as hard as some people make it.
My son is PDD-NOS and OCD. What you have to do is treat one while taking the other into acct. EG: Treat the Autism and be sure to be aware of his OCD. My son doesnt like to get his hands dirty or to have his schedule disrupted. So to best treat his PDD, we always made sure that we didn't perplex him with too much stimulation and not to do things that would trigger his OCD. Also, find out if he is a sensory seeker vrs someone who avoids alot of stimuli. What sets him off ect. These are good things to help find a way for regulation. So when he gets pushed too far in therapy, at home you can help him regulate himself without huge meltdowns. Though, some of them are unavoidable. I suggest watching Temple Grandin speak on youtube and a good dailey dose of Floor time ( http://www.autismweb.com/floortime.htm ) I have a long list of good resource books too if you are interested. I also blog about things autism related. Last one was about therapy items on the cheap pt 1 ( Mouth toys for speech therapy). My son is 5 and has had great results with therapies I have him enrolled in. I am open to sharing anything that might help someone else.
