Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) — Day 16 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

Still having difficulty finding pictures for several of our topics For “yesterday’s post” (which is showing up the same day as this one because I’m still behind, and still working on getting back on track, so no need to schedule) I wrote a bit about language (I think I need to revisit it) but related […]

Lack of activity

For the last little while there has been a lack of activity, well, mostly a lack of visible activity.  Well, not entirely just a lack of visible activity, as even stuff going on in the background hasn’t been going on. So here I am trying to put a few of those pieces together. Social issues […]

Some months ago, I was planning a meeting which I was going to talk about the importance of connection.  Many months ago actually, I think that may have been over a year ago, or at least close to a year ago. Today I met online with the organizer of the Capability Club which is in […]

Body Language and Donald Trump

A tentative title of “Body Language, Donald Trump, and Empathy” is used for this post.  The reason being these topics have been recently linked, but I think that maybe only by myself.  I will explain a few ideas about how I am linking these ideas together first, and then start to work towards each of […]

Understanding social skills training

I really am not sure where I am intending to go here.  A lot of this is more or less a bit about what my experience with social skills training has been. First off, I want to say that I do not recall any official social skills training that I received.  So, I honestly believe in a […]
