I am an educator for children with autism. I have a child in my classroom who is autistic and profoundly deaf. He has a cochlear implant. He does not show any signs of hearing and does not show any comprehension of sign language. He uses picture exchange for communication. We use photographs and gestures in order to give him directions but he only follows the direction if a preferred activity is involved. My question is: Does anyone know of an organization, or expert in the field of autism AND deafness?
I checked out the http://www.****.edu website and the links have more to do with ear, nose, throat, and other areas of health, rather than autism AND deafness. If you have any other leads, I would appreciate it.
