SPECIFIC TREATMENTS FOR SPECIFIC POPULATIONS: PARENTS OF CHILDREN WITH AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER

With V. Mark Durand, PhD

In Parents of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder, V. Mark Durand demonstrates his positive parenting approach to working with mothers and fathers of children who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

ASD is an increasingly common diagnosis among children, and symptoms such as repetitive behaviors and communication deficiencies can challenge parents, often affecting their personal relationships and daily activities. The evidence-based approach demonstrated in this video focuses on increasing a sense of hope in these parents.

In this video, Dr. Durand works with a single-mother of an 8-year old boy with autism spectrum disorder. He helps her see that how she thinks about herself and her son impacts on her relationship with him at home. He then helps her focus on seeing the improvements she has seen in her son's behavior over time, and encourages her to take credit for these positive changes.

AUTISM: WARMING TO ITS COLD EMBRACE

Warming to the cold embrace of an autism diagnosis is often very challenging for families.

As one parent points out in this informative half-hour program: "When we got the diagnosis, autism was like this 900-pound word that sat on my chest and sucked the air out."

Award-winning independent filmmaker Robert Parish knows that sinking feeling. When his son Jack was diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in 1996, Parish sank into a deep emotional hole. He dug his way out by pointing the lens of his video camera in Jack's suddenly disorganized direction. The footage Parish collected ultimately became the critically acclaimed film COME BACK JACK íV the first nationally broadcast documentary that shattered many of the myths associated with an autism diagnosis.

AUTISM. WARMING TO ITS COLD EMBRACE features the perspectives of many of the passionate autism advocates Parish has met along his personal ASD journey, including Dr. Patricia Manning-Courtney and Jennifer Brown of The Kelly O'Leary Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders, Stephen Shore of Adelphi University, and other parents of children with autism spectrum disorders. Their points of view offer warmth, understanding, and inspiration to anyone who has a child or adult with autism in their lives.

ALL ABOUT AUTISM: AUTISM TIMES TWO

The story of Jo and Darnell Cauley and their two sons

Jo and Darnell Cauley had two typical children, but their third was slow to develop communications skills. That was two decades ago, when autism was a rare condition. They found little information about it and few accommodations. So they taught themselves, sought out autism experts, and read everything they could find. But they didn't stop there.

They continued to study all emerging data about autism. Then, a decade later, they had a second son with autism. This time they were ready. Jo and Darnell have since dedicated their lives 24/7 to their sons' education and it's paying off. They've developed a system of supports for school, home, and community to be envied. The Cauleys have redefined what commitment means through their hard work, dedication and love of family. Autism Times Two is their story.

MOTHER'S COURAGE, A: TALKING BACK TO AUTISM

Director: Fridrik Thor Fridriksson

Narrated by Kate Winslet, this inspiring film follows one woman's quest to unlock her autistic son's mind. Margret, whose ten-year-old son Keli is severely autistic, has tried a number of treatments to help her son.

Consumed by an unquenchable thirst for knowledge about this mysterious and complex condition, she travels from her home in Iceland to the United States and Europe, meeting with top autism experts and advocates. She also connects with several other families touched by autism, whose struggles echo her own: the endless doctor visits and experiments with different treatments, the complication of doing everyday tasks, and the inability to communicate - perhaps the most painful and frustrating aspect of autism.

But as she comes across innovative new therapies with the potential to break down the walls of autism, Margret finds hope that her son may be able to express himself on a level she never thought possible.

SPECIAL EDUCATION - MY SON JACK: DIAGNOSIS - AUTISM

When Robert Parish's son, Jack Michael, was diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, he decided to do something that would help shatter the myths and misinformation about ASD. The award-winning broadcaster/producer produced two hour-long documentaries (Come Back Jack and Come Back Jack 2002) about his family's journey that have been broadcast nationally on PBS. Based on viewer reaction to these programs, Parish then produced this program to feature interview segments, as well as clinical and educational advice not included in the first two documentaries. This program explores the origins, diagnosis and treatment options for children with ASD; it features experts Patricia Manning-Courtney, M.D., Director of The Kelly O'Leary Center for Pervasive Developmental Disorders at Children's Hospital in Cincinnati, OH; Arnold Miller, Ph.D., founder of the Language and Cognitive Development Center (LCDC) in Boston, MA; Paul Callahan, Psy.D., Director of Operations, at The Language and Cognitive Development Center, Boston, MA; and includes interviews with Jack's siblings (Graham, Ryan and Courtney) and his mother, Diane.

SPECTRUM OF AUTISM, THE

By Heidi Rosenthal

Autism is referred to as a spectrum disorder: those affected by it can exhibit a wide range of symptoms and of developmental progress. It is this extreme variability which makes the disorder sometimes difficult to recognize, and may lead to children being misdiagnosed as mentally ill or retarded, when early and appropriate intervention is so crucial to treating children with autism.

In this DVD, we share in the experiences of several families who have struggled to love and care for children who fall at various points on the spectrum of autism. We learn about the symptoms which first alerted them to the possibility of a developmental disorder in their child, and the challenges they faced in obtaining an accurate diagnosis, and then in securing proper treatment and an educational setting appropriate to their children's needs. We hear as well the perspectives of clinicians and educators who explain the difficulties they face in recognizing autism, and point to some of the common developmental signs which may be early signals of the disorder. These include delays or regression in learning to talk; difficulties in understanding and integrating various forms of sensory stimuli; and failure to develop normal speech, language or early social skills.

Yet the overriding message of this production is that caring and aware parents and professionals can be extraordinarily effective in enabling children with autism to participate in the world around them.

AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER IN YOUNG CHILDREN: A VISUAL GUIDE - AN OVERVIEW: LEARNING TO OBSERVE ACROSS THE THREE

By Patricia Towle

Autism Spectrum Disorder in Young Children: A Visual Guide, the first in the series, addresses the need for early identification of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by providing instruction in how to observe key behaviors in young children to help make a judgment about possible autism.

ASD is no longer seen as a rare condition, but one that can affect any family in any walk of life. Parents are usually the first to realize something is "different" about their child, but often have to wait for months, or even years, before a professional provides them with a diagnosis and guidance for all-important early intervention. For this reason, the more individuals who can contribute to early identification of young children with ASD, the better.

This DVD addresses this need by providing explicit instruction in how to observe key behaviors in young children to help make a judgment about possible autism. Extensive video illustrations are from home movies of children with autism spectrum disorder, with comparison to typically developing children filmed for this project.

Volume 1 presents an overview of issues in detecting ASD in young children, and a review of the three symptom domains of Social Interaction, Communication, and Repetitive Behaviors. Subsequent volumes treat each of these three domains in greater detail.

For professionals-in-training across pediatric healthcare and child development professions, this training complements course instruction and clinical rotations. For established professionals, it enhances previous training. For those in a position to refer a child's family for evaluation, the DVD provides clear examples of what to look for when observing their child.

BUT HE KNOWS HIS COLORS - CHARACTERISTICS OF AUTISM IN CHILDREN BIRTH TO THREE

Autism is a behaviorally-defined condition in which children exhibit a range of behaviors.

There are three major concerns in autism: qualitative impairments in social interaction; qualitative impairments in communication, both verbal and non-verbal; and restrictive repetitive stereotyped behaviors.

These characteristics are outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV). Children exhibit a range in the severity of behaviors with each child presenting a unique picture.

Behaviors must be present before the age of 30 months. However, it can be difficult to obtain a diagnosis before the age of three because the behaviors that define autism are often disregarded because of the young age of the child.

In this program four children with a diagnosis of autism demonstrate some of the characteristic behaviors. The children (who are all under the age of three) and their families were filmed during evaluation by the interdisciplinary team from the New Mexico Autism Program.

The program is produced as an instructional tape to assist in teaching families, educators, early interventionists, occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, and physicians about the spectrum of behavioral characteristics seen in children with autism who are under the age of three. It speaks to the importance of early diagnosis and intervention for children and their families.
