Welcome to our #slpchat on ASD. Our icebreaker question: If you had an opportunity to specialize what area would you choose?
Aubrey Dunlap @atklingensmith

@SLPChat I'd specialize in literacy if I could! I kinda already have, just not formally.... #slpchat
Shareka @speechreka
I think I would specialize in AAC. I'd need more training tho. #slpchat
Tanya Coyle @SLPTanya
Q1 I have a few students with ASD - some just transitioning from IBI, others not. Mostly lower functioning in terms of language #slpchat
Tanya Coyle @SLPTanya

@SLPChat: Q1: Tell us what your ASD caseload is like. #slpchat
마 야 Maya @SpeechTherapist
My severe population (special day class) is usually 50% ASD. #slpchat
Shareka @speechreka
I have a mix of nonverbal and verbal pts, both high and low functioning. I also have a bunch of 2yo with ASD-like characteristics. #slpchat

Q2 In your country/state who can Dx ASD ? What role does the SLP play in assessment and diagnosis? Does anyone use the ADOS? #slpchat
Renena Joy @SLPrj
@SLPChat Dx here is usually done by a team (physician; psych) at the children's hospital. Some private psych also dx. #slpchat
Tanya Coyle @SLPTanya
Q2 In Ontario, Canada only a Dr can dx ASD, although the Dr often relies on others to help inform for Dx #slpchat
Shareka @speechreka
It's usually the psychologist or Developmental Paed here, but the ADOS trained SLPs can make a diagnosis, with psych collar. #slpchat
Renena Joy @SLPrj
The ADOS is usually one of the tools used in the ax battery. #slpchat I don't use the ADOS myself.
Tanya Coyle @SLPTanya
@SLPChat Oh, in ON, Canada I think psych can Dx it too, but usually don't #slpchat
Aubrey Dunlap @atklingensmith
@SLPChat i actually don't have any kids w/ ASD on my regular caseload, but get evals. #slpchat
Renena Joy @SLPrj
#slpchat SLP assessment results are usually taken into consideration re: dx.

In my state kids get a formal dx from a psychologist, a dev ped, or from a team assessment. More SLPs initiate the conversation #slpchat
