    Shifting Gears: Autism, Science, and the Homework Debate

    in Parents

    Homework. Ever since public schools have been in existance it has probably been a source of contention between kids, parents and teachers. Unfortunately, for students with autism, the problem reaches much farther than the "I don't wanna"s. And now, a recent study says what Lorin Neikirk has been voicing for over a decade: lots of homework has issues. Big ones.


    Denise Pope, senior lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Education, and co-author of the study, says "We found a clear connection between the students' stress and physical impacts -- migraines, ulcers and other stomach problems, sleep deprivation and exhaustion, and weight loss." (Full study was published in the Journal of Experimental Education.) 


    But what about the student on the spectrum? They love to learn... Seem so bright... Surely THEY just love homework, right? Not necessarily. The needs of autistic students are somewhat unique, even in light of the study.


     


    Join Lorin Neikirk as we delve into what homework works, what doesn't, and what should be avoided entirely in this episode of Aspie Friendly on BlogTalkRadio.

    in School

    Linda Tatsapaugh, Executive Director of Talisman Programs in North Carolina, joined Lon to explain the differences between typical students and those on the Autism Spectrum in their learning needs.  Many are very bright, Linda explained, but need some compensation help to allow for their special needs.  Linda concluded with some suggestions for parents and teachers working with these special students.

    SPECIAL GUEST - ROCK SINGER-SONGWRITER DANIEL TRIGGER

    in Entertainment

    Daniel Trigger is an experienced hard rock artist from the Midlands UK, who presents a new  album of original work called "Army Of One". Combining crushing guitar riffs with anthemic choruses, Army Of One has a muscular heavy rock sound that displays influences such as Alter Bridge, Guns N Roses and a modern-day Europe.


    It was in fact Europe that kick-started Daniel's music career in 1989, where "The Final   Countdown" was played  during a laser light show at the London Planetarium which a young Daniel attended. Immediately deciding he wanted to make music that sounded "like that", Daniel formed his first band at the age of 15, and stepped up to the microphone for the first time.


    There's so much more to Daniel's story so listen to Take 2 Radio Music on Wednesday, August 26th at 3pm eastern time!

  • Book of Daniel - Chapter 12

    in Spirituality

    Daniel 12:1-13 (KJV)
    1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
    2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
    3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
    4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
    5 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.
    6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
    7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
    8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
    9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
