Hi John, I have a strong belief that learning occurs best when stress is reduced, when a child's behaviors are understood instead of being viewed as intentional, and where relationship is present.  I have a friend who has created some educational materials based on these concepts the materials I believe are titled Working with the Difficult Child in the classroom.  Would be interested in your view point as a researcher.

Thanks, Kristi (parent of a child with disabilities)

A 3 year-old in our family has deletion 6q27. Is developmentally delayed, didnt say words until 3 years-old with speech therapy, eye problems, toe walks, stims, lines things up, has meltdowns, covers ears, hypotonia, likes routine, freaks out in public.  Talks some now, but can't carry on a conversation. Diagnosed PDD-NOS by neurologist.  Told by OT that she doesn't have autism, just autistic tendancies caused by chromosome deletion.  Is 6q27 really linked to full blown autism?
