The AFLS is comprised of The AFLS Guide and assessment protocols that assess functional, practical, and essential skills of everyday life. Although each assessment protocol can be used as a standalone assessment, we conceptualize all protocols as being different modules of an extended assessment that exists on a continuum spanning throughout a learner’s life in home, school, and community settings. Each module is different yet each is connected by unifying themes and overarching goals for maximizing a learner’s freedom, independence, and opportunities.

I read with interest the report “650 more day activity places for adults with disabilities by 2021” (Jan 8), which mentioned that the Autism Association will pilot a programme for caregivers to be trained by professionals to teach their special-needs children independent-living skills. I believe that we can go further to encourage and equip parents to home-school their special-needs children, with more training from professionals and perhaps financial assistance from the Government. An official networking site of trained parents can also help them find partners to form a small homeschooling gr ..read more

Living With Invisible Disabilities

1y ago
Unlike a person in a wheelchair, or one who uses a cane or wears a hearing aid, some conditions – such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and intellectual or developmental disabilities – are not immediately apparent. With a greying population, Singapore has more seniors with some form of disability due to dementia and other chronic conditions. There is also an increasing number of younger people with disabilities due to strokes or accidents. These less visible disabilities are a double-edged sword, says research fellow Justin Lee of the Institute of Policy Studies. “The ..read more

Children with autism may benefit from fecal transplants – a method of introducing donated healthy microbes into people with gastrointestinal disease to rebalance the gut, a new study has found. Behavioral symptoms of autism and gastrointestinal distress often go hand-in-hand, and both improved when a small group of children with the disorder underwent fecal transplant and subsequent treatment. In the study of 18 children with autism and moderate to severe gastrointestinal problems, parents and doctors said they saw positive changes that lasted at least eight weeks after the treatment.

Autism After 21: Adults Struggle To Find Employment, Housing

It’s tough for someone on the autism spectrum to find an apartment and job. First, they have to find a good fit. Then, the interest has to go both ways. Neither part is easy. “When we go apartment hunting with kids, a lot of the landlords want BYU students because they have these expectations of how BYU students act and their standards,” said Kari Bushman, off-campus housing specialist at ScenicView Academy, a nonprofit school in Provo that helps people on the spectrum adjust to adult life. “That is their ideal renter, although they are not necessarily BYU-approved housing.” When someone on t ..read more
