Movement Method is misnamed. It’s not a Method – it’s a framework. It’s a lens to view behaviors, motivations and the brain science of what is happening. It’s a lens to understand our own cultural upbringing and how we got to a place where we are applying techniques that don’t work – in fact, they create suffering.
I’ve always felt that as the professional I needed to be in the passenger seat. I believe that parents have to be at the wheel when it comes to intervention. I am available to provide guidance, support, ideas and expertise but I can’t decide where we are going. I start my work with parent empowerment so they feel competent and ready to lead because while I may know autism they know their child.
I think it is easy for us to forget how capable and resilient we actually are. We are resilient by nature; resiliency is a natural part of life. Resiliency is also a choice.
