Making Our Way: Autism

Hope you can set aside about an hour to watch this GREAT video!
Early detection and intervention is so important to help children overcome their challenges and have a greater chance for improvement.
I love how Temple Grandin explains that autism thinking is bottom up not top down. Give the child repetitive examples and teaching situations to understand a concept or theory.
Sensory integration and therapy exercises are wonderful. After getting feedback from multiple specialist, we use sensory tools daily and they help to lower our sons' anxieties and help them function better.
Fabulous parents too, who don't allow their son's challenges to become limitations or excuses.

Watch Making Our Way: Autism on PBS. See more from MAKING OUR WAY: AUTISM.
