Lessons from the Neurodiverse: Helping Individuals with Autism Help Themselves Help Themselves

October 14 @ 8:45 am - 12:45 pm
Classics V, 2425 Niagara Falls Boulevard
Amherst, NY United States
+ Google Map

This evidence-based workshop will explore recent discoveries about the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and early brain development that provide compelling clues about why individuals with ASD use repetitive and/or restrictive behaviors as calming and coping mechanisms. During this interactive half-day workshop, participants will learn to view individuals with ASD through a psycho-biological lens that provides new insight into how to help these individuals help themselves. Compromised autonomic and social engagement nervous systems not only effect communication, social skills and behaviors, but heighten the affected individual’s fight-or-flight response. Breathing techniques, meditative exercises, autonomic biofeedback, and even hypnosis can help individuals with ASD self-regulate stress, emotions, and behavior. Those who live and work with individuals with ASD can teach and model these skills. When they do, affected individuals learn to turn down the inner turmoil and respond to life’s challenges with increased focus, less anxiety and rigidity, increased social skills, a better self-concept, and greater confidence. This workshop is geared for individuals with ASD, parents, and professionals.
