As a speech-language pathologist, I have worked to improve the communication and life skills of persons presenting multiple sensory challenges for 15 years. In all of my years of training at the university level, I was not prepared in any significant manner for this task. Autism or related disorders were only briefly mentioned. My training has since been provided by the best teachers available: the many persons with sensory disabilities with whom I have been privileged to be associated. After years of attending and speaking at conferences and workshops to gain and share knowledge, years of conducting studies and analyzing research data, I can attest that the most valuable information I have acquired has been through observation of and interaction with the many individuals with whom I have worked.
