Interesting findings on the effects of pregnancy on gray matter which helps mothers improve social cognition and bonding
Eye contact is a frequent discussion related to Autism. Many adults and older children I have had the pleasure of knowing have talked about the difficulty with looking into the eyes of others. Think about it from a language perspective...processing language and making decisions to respond is difficult. Looking at someones eyes adds another layer to try to interpret and for many it is extremely difficult. It's also important to remember that while many individuals struggle with eye contact not everyone who has Autism does.
Science has long debated whether meeting another’s gaze feels unpleasant or just uninteresting
Conversational skills are a challenge for many people who have Autism!
The mother of an 11-year-old boy on the autism spectrum was exasperated. Her son—who has high-functioning autism—expounded at length about the video game Minecraft. And the monologue-ing could continue for five, 10 or 15 minutes, no matter the listener’s level of interest. Worried that her son’s singular focus would alienate potential conversation partners and friends, the mother turned to an online autism forum for advice. She shared that she typically cut short her son’s monologues after a minute or two, in hopes that he’d learn conversational self-control. But others in the forum suggested that this was insensitive and she should let him talk longer and ask follow-up questions. So which is the better way to teach such a child about the art of talk-sharing? Actually, neither is ideal, say speech-language pathologists specializing in social communication and pragmatics. Stopping the child from talking could discourage him from conversing entirely, and only inquiring about his special interest could fuel his difficulty with switching topics or noticing another person’s interest level.
The best thing is always to play with our kids!
The highlight of my son’s speech therapy was always the bag of toys. Years ago, when he was a toddler and the therapist came to our house, he’d wait patiently as she took out one toy at a time and used each to help build language skills. Anxious to boost his progress, I watched her...
