“That kid is trouble, always disrupting class, making noise, instigating the other students, pulling us off track!” LABELED: JUVENILE DELINQUENT
“Nobody knows what to do with him, at school he sits in the back of class and doodles, at home he won’t communicate with his parents, he just plays video games!” LABELED: HIGH FUNCTIONING AUTISM SPECTRUM
“How could a three year old girl be such a challenge? She never holds still, will not listen, pushes other kids away from their work, and won’t join us in circle.” LABELED: HYPERACTIVE
All three of these kids are now aligned with their education and participating in happy, healthy family lives! We showed the “juvenile delinquent” the greatness of his leadership and taught the other adults around him to recognize him for the gifts and talents he has. The kid on the spectrum studies art and is interacting with others around his cutting-edge animation techniques. We helped the adults in his life learn to partner with him in building on his amazing creative talent to engage with other kids in a manner that both works for and is meaningful for him. The “hyperactive” preschooler has become valued for her energy and enthusiasm. The adults in her life are reflecting back to her specifics about her greatness and her inner dialogue has become focused on her successes. She is learning to self-modulate and self-regulate. She and her family, teachers and classmates are ENJOYING her and her unique way of being.
