July 9th: AspergerExperts

June 26, 2014

In the middle hour we  discussed our favorite  of “Asperger Experts” You Tube video: https://www.youtube.com/user/AspergerExperts that we have viewed in the last 2 weeks. When we got tired of watching Danny in the green shirt we went to http://www.aspergerexperts.com/ for Hayden and more information. The one we liked the most was the one concerning the three phases of personal growth.

  1. Survival
  2. Maintenance
  3. Growth

It was clear from Danny’s teaching that you can not teach someone on the autism spectrum about self maintenance or growth when they are in survival mode. If they are afraid or hungry or do not know what to expect, they are in essence paralyzed at this first stage. So find out what is bothering them, what they need and then they can move on to self sufficiency (maintenance) and even later to self growth.
