Course description

Based on more than 20 years of working with individuals and families with autism, Robert has found that rather than trying to put behavioral supports in place right off the bat, we should be dealing with sensory issues first and then trying to teach behavioral and social skills. The individual with extensive sensory issues does not feel safe in their own world. They are constantly under attack by the environment around them. New research in mindfulness practice and neurochemistry indicates that teaching them to self regulate with mindfulness after supporting sensory needs is much more helpful. 

Learner Objectives:

  • Identify the level of functioning of autism
  • Identify sensory issues involved with autism
  • Identify necessary direction of treatment
