Are you a good listener?

http://newscdn.newsrep.net/h5/nrshare.html?id=039D71231410100001_us&r=3&lan=en_US&pid=9&app_lan=&mcc=310&declared_lan=&pubaccount=ocms_0

Please forward to our group and your friends if you like.

While these Concepts sound easy to practice, I assure you, they’re not! I still catch myself when I’m not doing the best job at being a good listener, and I’m 60 years old!

Practice every day and you’ll soon find that your relationships take on deeper meaning. And who couldn’t use a few more friends?!

Sesame Street’s recognition of autism – The Lancet Psychiatry

http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanpsy/article/PIIS2215-0366(17)30239-0/fulltext?cc=y=

​Sesame Street, a world famous children’s television programme, recently introduced its first autistic character, 4-year-old Julia.1 The decades-old programme, in a 10 min video, has shown its young target audience some characteristics and behaviours of an autistic child, demonstrated how to be receptive towards someone with autism, and how to make her feel comfortable and accepted. This video was applauded globally for its sensitive and accurate depiction of a child with autism.

The Autism Research Centre, in Rawalpindi, was established by two mothers of children with autism spectrum disorder who, unable to find any resources in Pakistan to assist and treat their children, set up this venture to extend autism-focused facilities and support to other families having children with autism spectrum disorder.5 Other non-governmental organisations have been created in the large cities of Pakistan, with services aimed at rehabilitation and inclusion of children and adults with autism spectrum disorder in society, such as the Ma-Ayesha Memorial Centre, PEGHAM, and the RAMAQ Centre for Autism. An online conversation was set up in 2003 to build a supportive community of parents, researchers, and educators, and to facilitate discussions, through the free online portal of the Pakistan Autism Meetup group.​

Autism Work

http://alienbeing.org/?gclid=Cj0KEQjwkN3KBRCu2fWmy9LLqN4BEiQANP9-WpBIjCw5PBrj_CxHJCOv7NLJf_1v8riDNAXs3qhxxcwaAmy18P8HAQ

​Since this is the beginning​ of the month, I’ve compiled recent (within 30 days) search results I found for Autism Adult Services at my Autism Blog.
I hope you’ll take a look and see if they could be helpful to those on the Spectrum.
Autism Work is just one of the search results I found, but certainly important if you want to live as independently as possible.

​AlienBeing.org is a resource for highly functioning adults having Autism Spectrum Disorders such as Asperger’s or High Functioning Autism. The objective is to help adults to live as independently as possible, to be able to work and to fit within the social world.
