When K. and I began working together in Feb. 2013 this 11-year-old autistic boy liked hard movements and very loud noises! Over a series of 10 lessons in 5 days he quieted down and discovered differentiation – able to enjoy big and small movements, making lots of noise and being quiet, too! He began to show what he wanted to placing my hands on the parts of his body he wanted adjusted. He began to enjoy the subtlety necessary to balance on unstable surfaces. By the end of the 10 lesson series he was asking for me by name and joining in games that I initiated.
