Today I published a new podcast on Sexuality and Autism Spectrum Disorders 0: Overall Introduction. In it, I took a step back to the beginning of the podcasts on ASD and Sexual Development to provide a bit of context and scope for this series of podcasts. I realized that I hadn't provided enough scope or context for either why I, as a speech-language pathologist, was interested in and discussing sociosexual development and individuals with ASD, as well as what was going to be discussed around approaches and strategies for addressing needs or areas of growth. Here is the link for the transcript for this podcast: sexuality_and_autism_spectrum_disorders_0-intro.pdf. As always, my podcast can be found at: flexiblemindtherapy.podbean.com/ or on iTunes at: itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-flexiblemindtherapys-podcast/id1233264485.
I've just added two new resource pages under the Resource Section: Addiction and ASD and Behavior and ASD. I've been focusing on my webpage a little more the last couple of weeks, and haven't gotten a new podcast up. I will be working to get a couple of new podcasts up in the next week, and will try to get a bit more back on schedule for them.
I've added new links to the Links page under Autism Spectrum Disorders. A new section was also created on Transition-Related topics with new resources added there.
I just added a new page under the resources section that contains links to articles, websites, and books on Law Enforcement, Criminal Justice, Offending, and Individuals with ASD. These resources cover a number of different topics, including: educational information, risk management, questioning or interrogating someone with ASD, interviewing victims with ASD, involvement in the criminal justice system, and information about individuals with ASD who do commit criminal offenses.
In today's podcast, we will explore the Neuropsychological Frameworks that may explain the behavior of individuals with ASD. These frameworks (Weak Central Coherence, Context Blindness, Theory of Mind, and Executive Functions) will then discussed within the context of sociosexual development and expression of individuals with ASD.
