  • Welcome to Autism 210: We Are All in This Together: Finding Common Ground Between Autistic and Parent Advocates – A Panel Discussion, facilitated by Zack Siddeek, MSW.

Often, communication between Autistic self-advocates and parent advocates are heated, hostile discussions. This happens in all contexts, be it online or in person. There have not been many attempts at bridging the gaps of communication, leading many to ask if understanding is possible. We all can agree that this aggression does not serve anyone, either Autistic or family members. In Seattle, local leaders on both sides met using a facilitated form of communication called “Intergroup Dialogue,” with an intention of building alliances around advocacy and empathy. This panel will reflect on the experiences from members of both groups, and identify ways that both sides can work together to ensure that everyone’s needs are met in an equitable manner.

  • Kira has been performing in musicals since she was 6 years old. Four years ago, she began having short seizures where she would suddenly become tone deaf, couldn’t process words in time with music or sing. An MRI revealed a marble-sized tumor in the part of her brain that controls auditory functions.

To preserve her singing ability, Kira underwent a novel type of surgery to remove the tumor. During the procedure, she was safely awakened and led through a series of vocal exercises to Weezer's "Island in the Sun," so surgeons could map her brain in real time and avoid areas involved in producing and interpreting music.

  • Thanks to research, today we’re one step closer to understanding the genetic causes of conditions such as intractable epilepsy. “It puts us for the first time in a very long time in a very close spot to actually have drugs that can help our children live better lives.” – Dr. Ghayda Mirzaa

      

  • “If only I could articulate to all of you what this video means to Kevin and I. Although he’s not walking unassisted, the fact that he pulled himself up and started cruising on his own is incredible. He works so hard every day and I am so proud of him. This “normal” milestone is even more incredible because of the donor who made this possible and a team of compassionate doctors who help give kids like Luke a second chance to LIVE free of disease. Our world is about to be flipped upside down and I am okay with that. We are blessed.” – Julia, Lucas’ mom

      

  • Welcome to Autism 209: Let’s Talk About AAC and Autism Spectrum Disorder, led by Jo Ristow, MS, CCC-SLP from PROVAIL, and Meg Pattee, MS, CCC-SLP from Seattle Children's.

Many children with autism spectrum disorder face challenges communicating. Luckily, communication is more than the words we speak. The goal of alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) is to provide alternatives to talking out loud or provide tools to verbal communication to help a child find the power of their voice. This presentation will focus on current trends in AAC technology as well as tools, goals and teaching techniques that are available for different types of communicators.
