I wanted to follow up on yesterday's post and share the link to a compilation of today's notes/tweets from a variety of attendees at the conference. Dr. Peter Vermeulen gave a great talk on the key element of context in teaching people with ASD. You can read more about that in his book Context Blindness. Michelle Garcia Winner and Dr. Peter Gerhardt also conducted a discussion on the continuum of treatment involving ABA, and there was a panel discussion on the recent changes to DSM-5 affecting diagnoses of individuals with ASD and Asperger's. Overall a great day of learning and connections.
You can check out the day's tweets here (you do not need to be on twitter to see them). Currently I am above NY and happy to be almost home!
