Default 'Agricultural specialisterne': rural employment revolution for those with Autism

The subject of recent posts has been on Autism-related events and organisations in the Akron metropolitan area of Ohio.

To the east, the Potential Development Program is a Mahoning County, Ohio-based nonprofit that has a mission to provide children with autism and special needs a safe and structured educational environment with caring, supportive services that give students the necessary skills and independence to lead productive lives. The Potential Development Preschool Program is an early childhood special education center that focuses on working with children ages 2 1/2 - 6 years-old who have various challenges, including Autism Spectrum Disorders...
Quote:
Children with autism and other developmental disabilities got a chance to experience a variety of local discoveries at a summer camp this week.

The students... participated in the third annual Camp FRIEND -- Finding Rewards In Every New Day.

The camp, which began Monday, runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rich Center for Autism. It ends Friday.

The students spent time at

OH WOW! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children's Center for Science & Technology, walked through the Butler Institute of American Art Museum...

The camp is a collaboration with the Autism Society of Mahoning Valley Office, the Rich Center and the Potential Development Program.

Robin Suzelis, Autism Society board president and camp coordinator, said the biggest goal is to help introduce students to new places and let them explore.

"They need to be out, they need to be exposed to new things," she said. "They need to know that kids like them, that they can play with or just to be around so that they don't feel so different."

The camp provides an inclusive experience for students, not only within the autism spectrum, but other [challenges as well.]

As a parent of a 5- and 10-year-old with autism, Suzelis said the support she gives her children results in improved behavior and social skills.

...In addition to the exploring the community, campers also enjoy activities ...such as swimming, cooking and gardening.

The staff consists of 14 special-education teachers from the center, two full-time volunteers and four part-time volunteers.

Ali Lessick, lead instructions analyst volunteer for the camp and instructions specialist at the center, looks after the 3 to 5 age group. Lessick said the support she provides is invaluable to students.

"With this age group, their minds are so fresh, and they have so much to learn," she said. "So it's important for us to really plan important structures and effective activities."

Suzelis said Youngstown has a great need for the camp because students have little to no structured programs in the summer.

Rachel Dobson, the camp director and behavioral analyst at the center, organized the camp's schedules, with volunteers and teachers and supervising the campers. Since the first year, Dobson said both parents and children have loved the camp and always look forward to its return.

Due to some of their behavioral conditions, many families can't send their children to typical camps. Suzelis hopes the camp can start earlier next summer to avoid the start of the school year and to accept more students, depending on staffing.

Default 'Agricultural specialisterne': rural employment revolution for those with Autism

The subject of recent posts has mainly been on Autism-related events and organisations in Northeast Ohio.

The Autism Society of Mahoning Valley is a Youngstown, Ohio-based nonprofit that aims to work to improve the quality of life for those individuals, including children, living with Autism Spectrum Disorders. It serves Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties...
Quote:
The Southern Park Mall hosted the Second Annual Autism and Disability Awareness Fair on March 21. Parents and children came to the fair to get information, share information and to merely have their children come and play – activities were provided by The Autism Society.

Jen Gonda, a staff member of The Autism Society, said they had a huge turnout throughout the day of inquiring people and those wishing to help and get help. This fair was a kickoff event for April, Autism Awareness Month.

“We didn’t feel like we had a place for everyone to come together and connect,” Gonda said. “So that’s how this idea came together... We wanted to get our information out to as many people as possible.”

Aundrea Cika, director of the Mahoning Valley Autism Society, said this was a source that everyone seeking more information could come to, it wasn’t just limited to a certain people.

...Cika went on to say that there is so much misinformation out there now due to sharing of personal stories, websites dedicated to help others and purely situational data that just doesn’t suit everyone with a child who has a disability – the organization was started to help those searching for answers find them.

...The Autism Society has staff with a goal to better decipher accurate information from the inaccurate and disseminate the accurate information as efficiently as possible to mass amounts of people.

Default 'Agricultural specialisterne': rural employment revolution for those with Autism

The subject of recent posts has mainly been on Autism-related events and organisations in the state of Ohio.

The Children's Center for Developmental Enrichment (CCDE) is a Westerville, Ohio-based nonprofit whose services, through its school Oakstone Academy, include early intervention services for children from birth to age 3. The Oakstone Academy was founded on the principle of providing a truly inclusive environment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, allowing them to be full participants in the classroom with peers who do not have disabilities...
Quote:
The city of Westerville is home to one of the few schools in the U.S. founded on the principle of providing a truly inclusive environment for children with autism spectrum disorders...
Oakstone Academy, located on South State Street, has created a school where students with autism are full participants in the classroom with peers who do not have disabilities.

[At least] three families of children with [Autism Spectrum Disorders] ...founded the Children's Center for Developmental Enrichment (CCDE) in 1999. CCDE's goal was to develop an educational model based on the inclusion of students with [Autism Spectrum Disorders] and their typically developing peers.

CCDE opened its doors to students in 2000, and opened Oakstone Academy, named for the street on which the first building was located, in 2002. This year, Oakstone Academy graduated its seventh senior class.

The process of starting a school from scratch, especially one based on a new education model, is no easy task. The education model Oakstone uses is called Social Immersion.

...Social Immersion classrooms consist of 18-20 children, two teachers and an assistant. Usually, seven or eight of the students in a classroom have [Autism Spectrum Disorders]. Students can apply for enrollment in Oakstone Academy as early as preschool, and the school touts that about 80 percent of the students who begin there as preschoolers thrive in the Social Immersion model.

Oakstone Academy draws students from all over the Columbus area -- 18 local school districts in the 2016-17 school year -- with some traveling from as far as Marysville, Newark and Mt. Gilead on a daily basis. There are even families moving to central Ohio from across the U.S. to attend the school.

...Oakstone Academy refers to its neurotypical students without [Autism Spectrum Disorders] as 'peers,' and this group of students is an important part of the school's success.

This past year, Oakstone Academy served 550 children across all grades, and 280 of those children have [Autism Spectrum Disorders]. Students at Oakstone have many opportunities available to them through the school.

...Starting in fifth grade, students may participate in theater, and boys' basketball and girls' volleyball are available beginning in sixth grade in addition to clubs for ultimate Frisbee, running and bowling. High school boys and girls may run cross country and join the swim team, and the boys can also choose basketball, while girls can play volleyball...

Oakstone Academy is also very focused on character education and student leadership as principles of the Social Immersion model, and there are programs that students can participate in beginning in middle school to help further themselves in these areas...
Here is a link to a video from Oakstone's spring concert from last year, featuring children from kindergarten age singing Oakstone's song: https://www.facebook.com/31851929746...3853305742468/

After a 6 year thread length and no other member replying, what has this to do with pheromones?

Ah. Okay. I read through a few pages expecting something about using pheromones as a treatment for autism.

Default 'Agricultural specialisterne': rural employment revolution for those with Autism

The subject of recent posts has mainly been on Autism-related events and organisations in the state of Ohio.

To the southeast, the Autism Center of The Studer Family Children's Hospital at Sacred Heart is a Pensacola, Florida-based nonprofit that offers a range of services for children on the autism spectrum. These services include direct, individualised Applied Behaviour Analysis therapy...
Quote:
"When I was taking classes, autism was this little paragraph in a book. not a chapter, not a whole book, it was a little paragraph." Debbie Keremes is sitting in her crowded office at the Autism Center at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital off Bayou Boulevard in Pensacola. She is the manager of the facility as well as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.

"Applied behavior analysis is the scientific study of behavior. And it's not a new field, but because insurance covers it now and people are more aware, as that increases, you know, as people become more aware of that and how to use those skills, then we can be more effective across the board".

For school age children with autism or other qualifying special needs, the local school district must create an IEP: Individualized Education Plan. Implementation of that plan is monitored and adjusted as needed. At the Autism Center, they try work with the school system to go further for their clients.

Keremes says, "We work with the school district, we don't try to have two separate things going on."

Jennifer Findley, another Behavior Analyst at the Autism Center, explains, "I would say that our biggest addition or difference between the school is that we have the ability to incorporate the parents into what we're doing."

She has a unique point of view about the topic because she is also a parent of a child with autism. She says parents usually have to wait until they come home to find out what their child has been doing in school. "They're part of the IEP process, but they're not part of the day to day operations of the school. So the parents can come to [The Autism Center] and be part of the therapy. They're invited to be in the session with us. We're teaching them the skills of how to work with their kid outside of school and outside of the clinic setting."

And she says parents learning those techniques and being involved with their child's program not only helps their family life, but can also improve the child's performance in school. Findley became a Behavior Analyst after seeing how the discipline helped her son. "I learned about what ABA was, got my son in care and fell in love with it. It increased his communication and reduced his problem behaviors and I said 'yep, I'm changing my entire career, that's what I'm doing'".

A few years ago many more families were given access to the center when health insurance companies began to cover Advanced Behavior Analysis. Findley says that was a turning point as both an analyst and a parent. "I would say it's only been five years or so that insurance has been covering ABA. And every year it's more that are being covered, and that's been a huge turning point. So it's a lot more readily available out there, especially since Medicaid started covering it for families."

That increased access means there is a need for more people trained in [Applied Behavior Analysis]. The Autism Center has always had a waiting list for service, and Debbie Keremes says training is one of the most important services they offer. "This is a pretty stressful field. It's pretty hard working with kids who can have some challenging behaviors [so] it's not for everybody. There is a lot of turnover and training needs that are always going on."

Keremes says the center does training for both parents and professionals in Advanced Behavior Analysis. "We have trained hundreds and hundreds of people to assist working in the classrooms or paraprofessionals or speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists...so again getting everyone the training that they need and keeping everyone on the same page is what's really critical for success."

But the main focus of the center remains the children and their families. Keremes and Findley both say that when parents first find out their child has autism it can be overwhelming. They hope to make the center a one stop shop for the available services.

"It's very confusing" says Keremes, "where do I go for a diagnosis , then I have to go somewhere else for treatment and I'm supposed to go to speech and occupational therapy in one location and Applied Behavior Analysis at another location and who is Autism Pensacola and how does this all fit together..." They say coordination of services is one of the center's priorities so they can be a place where parents can go and get information about all of the available services in the region. Findley says burnout is another big problem for families. "I felt that way too, and if t was a relief when I actually came to a place where they were able to educate me and teach me and I didn't feel quite so overwhelmed."

The Autism Center at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital works [together with] teachers, physicians, therapists and family members--and partners locally with the University of West Florida ...the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, Autism Pensacola, Early Steps and the local school districts.
Here is a link to a video from the Center:
