Developmental Lecture : Guest Speaker
Angela Morris talking about her son Alistair Morris
Son who is deaf and autistic
Deafness was obvious (ran in the family, very genetic)
One can have one disability, but also have another
But some people are not open to another disorder
- Her son began very hyper active, at the mall wouldn’t stop touching stuff
- Caused the parents a lot of distress
- Child began with obsessions (He loved light bulbs)
- He called them “flicker flicker lights” & would be keen on changing bulbs
- Getting older, he had an amazing peripheral vision.
“The root of language is reaching out”
- Just because they don’t look directly at you, doesn’t mean there not
looking at you.
- Breaking steps down really small helped to make progress with her son
