Communication and Autism

Many of you were asking last week about the difference between students with communication disabilities and students with Autism who are non-verbal.  I will talk more about this on Tuesday, but in the meantime, I wanted to share two links with you:

One, a short piece written by a young person with autism.  We will talk more about the benefits and challenges to ABA on Tuesday.

Two, some ideas and suggestions for how to communicate with someone who is non-verbal.  

Three, some recent research on students who are non-verbal.
