The Wisdom of Autism



Good therapists working with young children on the autism spectrum can take on many roles at once: clinician, educator, interpreter, and advocate. They know how to break social and emotional skills into pragmatic pieces, contrive situations to facilitate connection and resilience, and become experts in the essentials of effective communication. But entering into a child with autism’s world and connecting isn’t always easy. In this recording, we’ll explore the skills and perspectives that can lead to breakthroughs with children on and off the spectrum.
