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 

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?
