Hi everyone, Has anyone worked with any children who are moderate to severe autistic as well as having light perception. I have a ten year old who is autistic had a TSS received intensive schooling and training year round and is generally a good kid. His parents aren't quite sure what the Rt can do for their child and I am racking my brain for thoughts and ideas. We settled on time, a clock, and keychain clock, and making his bed, and posiblity assisting with other chores. they also want a programmable cue system, for example if he wakes up early it might remind him to go back to bed, but I don't know of such a thing. Does anyone have any ideas or good resources? Shelley L. Rhodes, M.A. CVRT and Ludden black Labrador Guide Dog. Diamonds may be a woman's best friend, but a dog is mine.
