Though there is great variability in ASD-related behaviors, occasionally clinicians encounter behaviors so challenging that they interfere with treatment. Some research indicates a relationship between several characteristics—lower nonverbal IQ, lower levels of expressive language, more severe social deficits and more repetitive behaviors—and the incidence of aggression, self-injurious behaviors and tantrums in children with ASD.
When confronting such behaviors, clinicians may struggle to keep children on task. They may spend more time managing and addressing behaviors and less time providing treatment, thus limiting progress.
OTs frequently work with children with ASD to address their sensory-processing differences. They use a variety of interventions, including sensory integration and sensory-based strategies, to help children organize environmental input and perform daily activities. Such strategies may include jumping, swinging and weight-bearing activities. SLPs are among the other professionals OTs commonly work with—in addition to teachers and parents—in providing sensory strategies to help children attend, participate and communicate.
Game of Thrones fans are anxiously waiting for season 8 to premier on April 14 and for actress Emilia Clarke, it will mark an event that she wasn't sure she'd ever see, let alone star in. Check out this article about how the actress suffered two brain aneurysms, the first of which struck shortly after she finished filming her scenes for season 1 of Game of Thrones, leaving her with temporary aphasia.
"I could see my life ahead, and it wasn’t worth living. I am an actor; I need to remember my lines. Now I couldn’t recall my name…In my worst moments, I wanted to pull the plug. I asked the medical staff to let me die. My job—my entire dream of what my life would be—centered on language, on communication. Without that, I was lost.”
