Excerpt from Autism Eats website:

“For those of us who have a child with autism dining out can be anxiety provoking and stressful. As parents, we may feel that "all eyes are on us" when our kids exhibit certain behaviors, have outbursts or refuse to sit still. Other diners may be disturbed and the well intentioned wait staff doesn't really know the best way to help out. Many of us decide it is just not worth the effort and that is unfortunate. We created Autism Eats to bring the fun back to eating out. Our dinner parties are held in private rooms of restaurants or function facilities. Food is served buffet or family style so there is no waiting. Music and lighting are adjusted to accommodate those with sensory sensitivity.”

Dyslexia: The Role of the SLP

Dyslexia is commonly mistaken for reversing letters/numbers when reading. In reality, the definition of dyslexia is much more general: difficulty reading printed words. SLPs play a major role in evaluating and treating dyslexia, as many speech and language related areas affect the ability to learn how to read, write, and spell. Learn more about the SLP's role in treating reading difficulties below.

New Guidelines Extend Window for Stroke Treatment

A life-saving treatment, called a mechanical thrombectomy, allows doctors to remove a blood clot following stroke. This treatment was previously only available if administered within 6 hours of the onset of stroke symptoms. The American Stroke Association has released new research suggesting that extending the window of time could help patients to avoid serious disability.
