84. Cambridge Center For Behavioral Studies (CCBS): Applied Behavior Analysis And Be
Rich set of resources for research, professional advancement, and applications to education, industry, and special populations. Sections on aging, autism, parenting, behavioral safety, organizational behavior, pets and animals, and verbal behavior.
Behavior analysis (sometimes called behavioral psychology) is the scientific study of behavior and its relationship to the environment surrounding the individual. Prior stimuli and a history of consequences play a huge part in increasing or decreasing the frequency and likelihood that behavior will occur. The science was originally established by B.F. Skinner and his colleagues, but now there are thousands of behavior analysts around the world, continuing to scientifically enhance our understanding of behavioral dynamics, or applying the science to create more effective solutions to real-world problems. “Applied behavior analysis” refers to practical solutions to everyday challenges where poor behavior is the problem. The Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies (CCBS) is proud to present sections of its web site featuring behavioral solutions to education, parenting, autism, aging, safety, performance management in business, computer modeling of behavior, verbal behavior (language and thinking), and training of pets and animals, among others. Please follow these links to the individual sections of our site.

In The Treatment Of Autism And Related Developmental Disabilities
Deutsch Español Français Japanese ... e-mail NEW: Advanced Dietary Interventions: SCD ™ and BED NEW: List of medical and scientific studies Current research shows that many cases of autism result from an immune-system dysfunction that affects the body's ability to break down certain proteins and combat yeasts and bacteria. Many parents are convinced of the validity of dietary intervention for autistic individuals, but do not have the resources to try it themselves, especially those with picky eaters and skeptical spouses. ANDI was established by parent researchers, Lisa Lewis and Karyn Seroussi, to help families around the world get started on, and maintain the diet. The ANDI mission is simple: The ANDI News , published quarterly, provides the latest information about the biological treatment of autism. Our goal is to provide continued support for families implementing this diet, to share experiences, recipes and tips, and to let you know that you are not alone! We also offer hard-to-find books, food bars and informational brochures

AIT Resources
Auditory Integration Training...
  • Do you or your child have a history of ear infections? Do you or your child have problems following sequenced verbal instruction? Do you or your child frequently misunderstand what is said? Do you or your child have a short auditory memory? Are you or your child easily distracted by background noise? Do you or your child have sensitive hearing? Are "small" sounds perceived as uncomfortable? Do you or your child engage in humming or audible self-talk? Do you or your child frequently need "quiet time" to regain mental energy and composure? Do you or your child have an articulation problem?
If you answer YES to any of the questions above, consider Auditory Integration Training to resolve issues of discomfort, poor receptive language or sensory integration dysfunction.
General Information
Auditory Integration Training is considered an alternative, non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive intervention designed to alleviate hearing discomfort or hypersensitivity. It has been known to accelerate progress with allied therapies such as speech, occupational therapy, movement and other developmental therapies. DAN (Defeat Autism Now) Doctors advise parents to consider AIT as one of the first interventions, to alleviate symptoms of autism, reduce painful hearing (hyperacusis) and improve receptive language.

Rett Syndrome
Written by Stephen M. Edelson, Ph.D.
Center for the Study of Autism, Salem, Oregon
Rett Syndrome was first recognized by Andreas Rett in 1966 and is a neurological disorder affecting primarily females. Autopsies on the brains of these individuals indicate a pathology different than autism; however, children afflicted with Rett Syndrome often exhibit autistic-like behaviors, such as repetitive hand movements, prolonged toe walking, body rocking, and sleep problems. The prevalence of Rett Syndrome is similar to the prevalence of autism; that is, estimates are between 1 in 10,000 births and 1 in 15,000 births. Typical characteristics:
  • Normal development until 1/2 to 1 1/2 years
  • Shakiness of the torso, and possibly the limbs
  • Unsteady, stiff-legged gait
  • Breathing difficulties (hyperventilation, apnea, air swallowing)
  • Seizures (approximately 80% have epilepsy)
  • Teeth grinding and difficulty chewing
  • Retarded growth and small head
  • Functioning level is usually between severely and profoundly mentally retarded
  • Hypoactivity
In most cases, there is a regression in cognition, behavior, social, and motor skills throughout their lifetime.

98. Living With Impairment: The Effects On Children Of Having An Autistic Sibling
The effects on children of having a sibling with autism.
Child: care, health and development, 1 Living with impairment: the effects on children of having an autistic sibling PATRICIA HOWLIN Department of Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, Denmark Hill, London SE5 8A7 Accepted for publication 6 July 1988 Summary Although children of impaired siblings are generally believed to be at risk of suffering from a variety of problems themselves, research studies indicate that living with impairment is not necessarily a harmful experience. This report reviews studies in this area, with particular emphasis on those involving autistic sibships. Although often lacking adequate experimental controls, the current literature suggests various factors that are likely to influence the risks on siblings. Possible ways of minimizing such risk factors are discussed. 'You're a naughty girl!' said Tom severely 'and I'm sorry I bought you the fish line. I don't love you ....Last holidays you licked the paint off my lozenge box, and the holidays before that you let the boat drag my fish-line down when I'd set you to watch it, and you pushed your head through my kite, all for nothing. And you're a naughty girl and you shan't go fishing with me tomorrow.' With this terrible conclusion, Tom ran away from Maggie towards the mill

When Stacey went over to her new friend Chelsea's house, she met Chelsea's 4-year-old brother, Shawn. "Hi," said Stacey, smiling. Shawn glanced at her and said nothing. Then he turned back to a toy he was holding. Later, in Chelsea's room, Stacey said, "I don't think your brother likes me." "It's not that," explained Chelsea. "Shawn just has trouble responding to other people. He has autism." Of course, Stacey wanted to know what autism meant, what causes autism, what it's like to have autism, and more. Keep reading to learn the answers to Stacey's questions. What Does Autism Mean?
Autism (say: awe -ti-zum) is a kind of brain disorder that causes kids to experience the world differently from the way most other kids do. Those differences make it hard for kids with autism to communicate with others and react to things going on around them in the usual ways. When someone smiles, for instance, a kid without autism knows that the smiling person is happy or being friendly. Kids with autism, however, have trouble connecting a person's gestures - such as a smile or frown - with the person's feelings. It's difficult, too, for kids with autism to link words with their meanings. Imagine trying to talk with someone or learn from a teacher if you couldn't make sense of their words and gestures and couldn't come up with the right words to express your own thoughts! Autism also creates a confusing world of senses. Quiet sounds may be loud and distracting to a kid with autism. A sudden noise could be terrifying. A person's touch might set off a wave of strong sensations - like when a chill gives you the shivers, but much worse.

100. Help Us Help Logan
Built by his 16 year old brother, site is about an autistic 7 year old boy. Site has autism links, and regular updates.
My name is Allen. I'm 16 years old, and my mom and I want to do something special for my baby brother, so we are asking for your help. We are trying to find a way to pay for things that Logan needs for physical or speech therapy , and getting to doctor appointments all over California with specialists, so that Logan will hopefully begin to verbalize. It's hard for my mom to drive to all these appointments with a car that barely gets us (and we barely fit into) to the grocery stores in the area we live in. Plus, Logan needs a specialty harness to keep him in his seat while we are on the road, because he is so active, and other safety equiptment as well. Because Logan is so demanding, my mom has to stay at home as he needs 24/7 care. This means the only money coming into the house for everything we all need is just what my dad gets from work, and what the state gives us. My mom says its just not enough to pay the bills every month and get the vehicle we need (with the proper safety harnesses for Logan) to replace the broken down car we have now, and physical or speech therapy items. Help us help Logan...
