    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.

    Invisibly Autistic: The Surprising Truth About "Seeming Normal"

    in Social Sciences

    In this episode of AspieFriendly, Lorin Neikirk explores a phenomenon that isn't often addressed: Invisible Autism.

    When someone knowing very little about autsim thinks about ASD, they usually think of children who spin and hand flap and either talk incessantly about trains (or dinosaurs or the weather) or who don't speak at all. All of these things may be true for some, but there is a whole group of people with autism who don't "seem" very autistic at all. Are they any less so? Not exactly, They simply present in a different way. Those with Aspergers often fall squarely in this category. Women with Aspergers even more so. It may surprise NTs to learn that some on the spectrum can seem so "normal" that others on the spectrum may not initially realize they are autistic. Women with autism quite often "fly under the radar" regarding detection. 

    Prompted by a conversation between Neikirk and her young-adult son (both of whom have Aspergers) this episode of AspieFriendly takes a closer look at what it's like to be Invisibly Autistic. Why does it happen, what are the pros and cons, and what do we do when we're faced with a difficult situation because of it? 

    Join us as we talk about these things and more, in Invisibly Autistic: The Surprising Truth About "Seeming Normal".

    The Case Against Mormon Fundamentalists

    in Religion

     100 These are they who say they are some of one and some of another--some of Christ and some of John, and some of Moses, and some of Elias, and some of Esaias, and some of Isaiah, and some of Enoch (some of Warren Jeffs, some of Lorin Wooley, some of Monson, etc);
     101 But received not the gospel, neither the testimony of Jesus, neither the prophets, neither the everlasting covenant.

                (D&C  76:100-101)

    Mormon fundamentalists have gone rogue, building themselves up, with priestcraft, competing with and fighting against Zion, saith the Lord.

    "Lorin Woolley had instructed the Council of Friends that none of them were to organize, colonize, or to hold regular meetings. 1 He said that they were not to organize wards and stakes, etc., 2 for this was the work of the One Mighty and Strong,3 ... 4 The only thing they were authorized to do was to 'keep plural marriage alive,' 5"  Keys of the Priesthood, Ilus; Lynn L. and Stephen L. Bishop

    "John (Y. Barlow), that is neither your mission nor my mission. That is the mission of the One Mighty and Strong. Our mission is simply to keep plural marriage alive." Lorin Wooley

     22 Wherefore, be subject to the powers that be, until he reigns whose right it is to reign, and subdues all enemies under his feet.

                (D&C  58:22)
