Here are the top ten articles for the Autism Spectrum Disorders Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. Choosing Your Battles
The phrase 'choose your battles' is a mantra uttered by many parents. For parents of children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the mantra can mean the difference between sanity and chaos.

2. Preparation for a New School Year
For parents of children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), a new school year can bring up a mixed bag of emotions. Some early planning may help ease the fear and anxiety and pave the way for hope and excitement.

3. Structure, Routine, and the Summer Collapse
Structure and routine are integral to success for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Summertime provides decompression time, but the lack of structure and routine can often be as frustrating as it is relaxing.

4. Services Not Required
When a child is diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), parents often assume there will be a multitude of resources available in the child's school system. This is not always the case, especially when the school determines services are not required.

5. Executive Function and Teenage Will
The battle between executive functioning and the teenage will has begun. Understanding the need for increased independence, while struggling with the knowledge that executive functioning deficits do not necessarily align with that need are a personal challenge.

6. Picture Schedule Samples
Here are examples from my collection of picture schedules utilized for my nonverbal son.

7. Consider the Nintendo Wii for Kids with Autism
Read the experience of one family who has achieved success with the Nintendo Wii and their 7 year old son on the autism spectrum.

8. In Home Supportive Services - IHSS
In home supportive services is a benefit for families who have a disabled child or parent in the home and want to keep them there safely.

9. Classroom Modifications for the Autistic Student
A compilation of what to include in the IEP, plus resources for parents and professionals.

10. Activities Using Picture Cards
Some of the items I have purchased over the years that incorporate picture cards and symbols that aid in teaching skills to the nonverbal autism community.
