What We Do – Movement and Attitude

Posted: November 5th, 2012 | Category: News | One comment

At Move Autism we work with child with two interrelated methods – movement and attitude.

We have found that movement to train the brain is one of the most important things that can be done to help a child outgrow an autism diagnosis. The brain is constantly reorganizing the body. The brain re-organizes the body — including digestion, emotions, thinking, and kinesthetic movement — many times every second. Consequently, movement training is an extraordinarily useful way to train the nervous system of a child with autism. As specific movement patterns improve the brain becomes more organized and lots of other things improve, too!

The second set of tools for overcoming autism that we practice and teach are all about attitude. We start from seeing autism as an opportunity and celebrate ever step of the way. It is a lot more fun! We start from a place of loving and accepting each child and as a result children enjoy the work we do together!
