August 11 2008 Autism Spectrum Disorders Newsletter


Greetings Everyone ~

Many in various parts of the US are back at school today. Here in Los Angeles we have another three weeks. Camp just ended last Friday so this is the summer vacation until school starts early September for both my sons.

Here are the latest articles from the Autism Spectrum Disorders site at BellaOnline.com.

Preparing for School and the Bus
My nonverbal son will be riding the bus for the first time to Middle School. These are some resources I am using to prepare us for this transition.

There is a movie that is premiering this evening in Los Angeles. It is called Tropic Thunder and stars Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Matthew McConaughey and Robert Downey, Jr. Here is some information about how it uses offensive language and the portrayal of people with intellectual disabilities:
