Particularități ale limbajului și comunicării în TSA

Particularities of language and communication in ASD


Autism spectrum disorders (AST) are a complex and puzzling cluster of disorders in which social isolation, communication difficulties, and the presence of peculiar and/or repetitive behaviors, in various degrees, are the main characteristics. These characteristics are interlinked and share similar brain and cognitive functioning specificity. This paper focuses on communication and language disorders, their particularities in persons with AST, and their impact on differential diagnostic and specific interventions. Efficient therapeutic strategies and techniques for persons with ASD should address these strong correlations and overlaps between the specific social behavior development and the particularities of using language and communication in an ecological paradigm.

Evaluarea diagnostică a fluenței în citire

Diagnostic evaluation of reading fluency

Teodora Lavinia GABRIAN

This study presents the results of reading fluency ability in2nd class students as measured with PEAFC (Probe for Assessing and Training Reading Fluency). The results demonstrate a significant improvement in reading fluency for all the participants. PEAFC helps the teacher or the therapist to monitor the progress and to present the progress the students made to the students and to the parents. The results can be presented in a graphic for a better understanding

Keywords: reading fluency, test, dyslexia, dysgraphia.

Writing and reading disorders in children

Writing and reading disorders in children with children with visual impairments

Daniela BARTHA

The development of literacy for the visually impaired children constitutes the cornerstone of education. Many researchers noted that there are visually impaired children who might have some difficulties in learning to read and write in Braille. That is why, in this article we will try to describe these difficulties.
First of all, we will try to define and understand the language difficulties, namely dyslexia and dysgraphia. Secondly, we will try to make a short presentation of the Braille system. We will then go on with the analysis of some types of errors which are frequently observed in case of visually impaired children, but we will also discuss some possible stages of correcting them.
Moreover, this article also contains a practical section, in which we will present a case study of a visually impaired girl who studies in the High school for the Visually Impaired Children from Cluj-Napoca. In this case study, we will explain the therapy applied to help her overcome these difficulties.

Keywords: dyslexia, dysgraphia, reading difficulties, writing difficulties, visually impairments.
