This section contains information on the multi layered facets of autism and it’s multiple complexities. Different theories are discussed as well as different interventions that may be helpful. It is important to view an individual with autism as a profile and not to be “bound” by the diagnosis. While we accept the individual completely as they are, we also raise the bar in assisting them to become all that they can be. We target the areas that can create change and an easier ability to deal with life. We entice the child to join us in our world by first understanding them and joining theirs. We believe children are more than what their behaviors tell us and afford effort in “chasing the why” to understand root causes of behavior.
We all know children who struggle with containing their emotions, dealing with them and losing control, experiencing meltdowns. Children who struggle with developmental delay in their central nervous system, also struggle with emotional developmental delay as their sensory experiences holds them back and they avoid the very play activities that will assist them in growing and maturing emotionally. Discover different theorists that makes sense to us. Understand the nature of development of the separation-individuation process, the building of autonomy, self esteem and the contributions of anxiety.
