I have often heard people saying the word "retard", and the first thing that comes to my mind is people with Aspergers Diseases (though I know that this was wrong of me). Another example of how 'retard' is associated with autistic people is through the work of famous recording artists. Drake and J. Cole's song “Jodeci" for example includes a line where they call autistic people "retarded.”I’ve argued for the use of a different word before, but after reading "The Truth about Autism," I learned that the notion that three quarters of autistic people are mentally restated is incorrect. Individuals with autism have brilliant and creative minds, and their gifts should not be discounted. In conclusion, the compelling fact I learned was that people with Autism are often harmfully mislabeled "retards."
Evaluating the Effectiveness of Social Skills Interventions for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: Evaluating the Effectiveness of Social Skills Interventions for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders Social skills are the basic foundation necessary for getting along with others. A lack of social skills in an individual can cause many problems for that person. Some problems that have been associated with a lack of social skills are the development of behavioral difficulties, peer rejection, emotional difficulties, becoming a victim of bullying, difficulty in making friends, aggressiveness, poor self-concept, and academic failures. Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders often suffer from a profound impairment in social functioning. Thus, individuals with Autism often require direct instruction and additional training in order to develop appropriate social skills.
Curious Incident Essay Living with autism like Christopher does can be very challenging.

Autism is characterized by delays or abnormal functioning before the age of three years in one or more of the following domains: (1) social interaction; (2) communication; and (3) restricted, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior, interests, and activities. I know the effects of autism. Being the father of two children on the polar opposites of the autism spectrum I have dealt with all the aspects and crippling emotional and social effects of the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In my research, I have discovered many paradigm shifts in the technologies used to treat this disorder. Over the years and the development of computational research the technologies of identifying and addressing the problems with physical, emotional, and social disabilities associated with ASD have grown exponentially.

Attitude, Legislation, and Litigation Grand Canyon University: SPE-226 Attitude, Legislation, and Litigation Life has always presented inevitable struggle and hardships for humanity, but society has learned to cope and even triumph in times of trouble. However, one must question the quality of life for the disabled if they have no control of their life or environment. Historically speaking special needs individuals have struggled with more than just their disability. Living in unaccepting world they faced cruel and unusual treatments in response to their disabilities. It was not until later on that the treatment of disabled individuals was addressed and the passing of laws in favor of these people changed their lives forever.
Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc, 2004) . ASDs vary substantially in the severity and nature of symptoms but are defined by persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction as well as the presence of restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior(Tina R. Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc, 2004).Other than that, signs of autism include difficulty talking about personal feelings or understanding the feelings of others, disinclination to share or engage in reciprocal play with others, lack of eye contact and joint attention behavior, difficulty communicating or using language, and sensitivity to physical contact(Tina R. Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc, 2004). Besides that, early intervention is critical for a positive long-term outcome, and many individuals need high levels of support throughout their lives such as treatments include applied behavior analysis in which positive and negative behaviors are encouraged and discouraged to improve social and communicative skills(Tina R. Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc, 2004). Other approaches is focus on utilizing nonhuman partners to facilitate human-human social interaction, for instance, through pet-assisted therapy(Tina R. Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc, 2004). Although computer-assisted therapy and virtual reality approaches have shown some success which is has been limited investigation of the parameters of the facilitative interactions and of the conditions necessary to generalize the benefits to interactions with human partners(Tina R. Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc,
Autism Spectrum Disorder Erick Mojica Florida National University Professor Hortacio Nunez December 08, 2014 Abstract ASD formally known as Autism Spectrum Disorder is a disorder found in many children. It is mainly found more in males than in females. This disorder affects kids at a very young age and impairs both social and communication skills in the brain. In this paper, you will read the signs and symptoms and even the treatments and therapies these children can take. Don’t get me wrong, those these treatments will help the children cope and maybe even understand their disorder it will not cure it or take it away.
Autism is a developmental disability that causes problems with social skills and communication. Autism can be mild or severe. It is different for every person. It is also known as autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and can include high and low functioning and verbal / nonverbal conditions along the spectrum as well as a milder form known as Asperger syndrome, and childhood disintegrative disorder and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (referred to as PDD-NOS). Although ASD varies significantly in character and severity, it occurs in all ethnic and socioeconomic groups and affects every age group.
These “social deficits are intrinsic to the definition of autism.” (Harris, 2001) The remediation of these symptoms remains one of the most daunting challenges for professionals who serve people with autism. Many different types of strategies have been developed and implemented for many years now, and those programs and treatments that focus on social skills hold much promise for individuals with autism. Early on, efforts were made in focusing on skills such as making eye contact and exchanging hugs. (Dowrick, 1999) From there, programming efforts have matured greatly. More recently, work has ranged from teaching youth people to offer assistance to a person in distress (Harris, Handleman, & Alessandri, 1990) and teaching pretend play.
