People with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) typically experience difficulty with balance, gait, coordination and sensory integration. The mind/body exercises in this DVD enable young people with AS to improve these skills, leading to greater self-confidence, and independence.
With clear explanations and demonstrations, this DVD covers a variety of simple, calming exercises designed to influence the way the individual stands, sits, moves, thinks of him- or herself, and relates to others. Ron Rubio's approach integrates ideas and practices from disciplines including martial arts, Eastern principles of mindfulness, techniques of visualization, breathing, posture, and movement, and the practice of mentoring.
The DVD complements the author's book Mind/Body Techniques for Asperger's Syndrome and is a practical introduction to Pathfinder techniques for adolescents with AS, their parents, professionals including physical therapists, pediatricians, cognitive and behavioral specialists, and special education teachers who work with them.
