Teaching adults on the autism spectrum?

Not sure if this is the correct forum for this. If not I'd appreciate a redirection.

I'm looking for books and/or resources on teaching adults on the spectrum. There's a ton of material on teaching kids and adolescents, but I haven't been able to find anything specifically on teaching adults. I've even contacted a couple of associations, but they didn't offer anything specific.

This would be for a vocational program for adults on the spectrum. Any thoughts or ideas?

is it too early for schadenfreude?

He won't be sentenced until October, and he'll probably appeal anyway, but is it too early?

Oh, the suspense, the suspense! nt

Is DeathSantis channeling a Middle Ages pope?

From what I've been reading, it seems to me that he's slowly but surely creating a medieval society in FL. No abortion (a religious doctrine), ban books, ban "gay" (another religious no-no), change the educational system, threats. Right down the line.

Back in the Middle Ages in Europe, the Church held vast power over people by threatening them with hell if they didn't do what they were told and support the Church. They wanted people to not read (not even the Bible): keep 'em dumb and they'll do what we tell them. The few universities that developed were run by the Church.

Maybe he wants to become Pope Ron the First.

Who's next down the stairs?

It'll be really interesting to see who or what happens just before the next deposition date.

Hey, Vlad, this guy isn't useful to you any more. How about doing yourself and us a favor?

"Professional Strength"

I get such a kick out of all these products marked "professional strength" at the supermarket. Like toilet bowl cleaner and similar stuff. I'm just waiting for toilet paper to be marked that way.

I've never seen anything marked "amateur strength." Have you?

On inconveniencing poor beerboy.

I know "we're better than this," but I wish there were a way to track where people like McConnell, Thomas, McCarthy, and others of their ilk go so groups can form quickly to go protest like they did with beerboy.

And yes I know that it might encourage repuke minions to start doing it to Democrats, but, considering what we're seen of them, I believe it would be short-lived. They're bullies, and bullies back off when they feel threatened.

There's an app named Flightradar24 that tracks air traffic and provides good information. I'd love to see something similar to track repukes. Maybe call it RepukeRadar247.

I am more convinced than ever.

I dont have the stomach, or even the appendix, to listen to repukes or Faux Bullshit. However, from what I read here and elsewhere about what they say, I am more convinced than ever that they really, honestly believe that their followers are morons. Which may go right along with their alleged plan to turn the U.S. into a medieval society with land barons and serfs.

Even Mitt's alleged comment that corporations should be the ones to own houses fits right in there.

Somehow I can't imagine trying to sell ignorant morons into supporting me.

Reminds me of the line from Blazing Saddles.

I am so amazed at how much we've learned about animals

since cameras became commonplace on phones.

Some of the videos here are awesome, like whowoudathunk?

My take on indicting tfg,

as much as I'd love to see it happen, is that DOJ and others might be afraid of setting a precedent. Granted there's probably lots of airtight proof that he broke laws while in office, but, still, they may be afraid that repukes and others might jump on the chance to indict a real president via a corrupt AG or someone else.

I'd say damn the torpedoes - full speed ahead.
