Greetings Everyone -
It has been awhile since I sent out a newsletter so time to get back into the swing of things. School is back in session, meetings under way for LAUSD committees and next up is an IEP.
Here's the latest article from the Autism Spectrum Disorders site at BellaOnline.com.
Amendment IEP for Therapy
Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy reasons for having an amended IEP meeting.
KEEN programs for children with disabilities
I want to pass on that there is an opening here at BellaOnlin for a Special Educator Editor - http://specialeducation.bellaonline.com/Site.asp
Please visit http://AutismSpectrumDisorders.bellaonline.com for even more great content about Autism Spectrum Disorders.
To participate in free, fun online discussions, this site has a community forum all about Autism Spectrum Disorders located here -
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
I have chosen the date for the second annual autism twitter day - Friday, December 18, 2009 - it will be a day for members of the site to tweet all day and nite in real time on all the issues on autism, about their kids, families, IEPs, therapies, toys, vacation, behaviors, diets, favorite books, etc. Feel free to join the site and learn how it works - http://twitter.com/autismfamily is my ID
I am also seeking products to give away that day so if you have a book, toy, therapy related item, software, DVD, CD, please contact me if interested in promoting your product on my blog through a post and on twitter prior to the event and during the day as a prize. Last year there were some gluten free and casein free products given away also.
More information will be coming forth in weeks, here is some promo from last years autism twitter day -
I am hoping to give away a subscription to an autism magazine, gift certificates to stores, online sites, toys since this is the end of the year and school break, plus awareness items like bumper stickers, jewelry, shirts.
Here are some links of interest:
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
