This “PowerPoint” slide show was used in one of Dr. Mac’s workshops regarding youngsters with PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder…Autism, Aspergers Syndrome, etc). Certain “notes’ slides (like this one) have been added to help to explain the slides. Understand, however, that there was three hours of narration accompanying this slide show. The notes provided will certainly not provide the detail and explanations provided during the workshop.There is also a “code” to running the slide show. The slide show will run by itself unless you see a red or green punctuation mark. A red question mark, colon, or period indicates that the show has stopped and that you must click your mouse to continue. A green punctuation mark means that you have reached the end of the material on a particular slide. You must left-click on your mouse to advance to the next slide.
