Twice Exceptional: Smart Kids With Learning Disabilities

23 Adar 5772 – March 16, 2012
It was Yehudah’s third birthday party. Instead of calmly interacting with his guests, he either ignored them or bossed them around with his limited vocabulary of ten words. He ran around nonstop and elbowed every person in his path. Then, his mother, Shoshana, decided he needed some time to himself so she asked him to play quietly in the den for a few minutes.

Looking Asperger’s Syndrome in the Eye

2 Adar 5772 – February 24, 2012
Asperger’s Syndrome was first described in the 1940s by Austrian pediatrician Hans Asperger, who noticed that he had many patients who were deficient in social and communicative skills even though they had normal language development and cognitive abilities. Professionals still debate as to whether Asperger’s Syndrome is “high-functioning autism” or whether it is its own disorder completely. Regardless, in 1994, Asperger’s Syndrome was added to The American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) as a separate disorder from autism.

Jack Of All Trades, Master Of None (Bechorot 29 a)

9 Kislev 5772 – December 4, 2011

When you have a child with special needs, whether it be medical or developmental, you are very familiar with signing those lengthy privacy practice information sheets.

Lain, Smartphone, Lain

22 Elul 5771 – September 21, 2011
As someone who lains fairly often at my synagogue, I don't consider it a big deal committing to a few aliyot every couple of weeks. I've even occasionally lained the megillah. Yet for more than 15 years, there is one Torah reading I have avoided laining at all costs: my bar mitzvah parshah.

The Need For More Marriage Education

17 Elul 5771 – September 15, 2011
Are we doing enough to prepare our children for marriage? I'm not talking about matters of Jewish law which couples learn about with their chassan and kallah teachers before they get married. What I'm referring to is the lack of knowledge of effective communication skills needed to make marriage successful and relationship-building tools that can enhance feelings of love and camaraderie.
