Explaining Autism Mindfully

 

We loved this beautiful video that really helps (mindfully) explain autism.

Being Connected Kids, our experience confirms (again and again) that we would also include teaching meditation to kids on the spectrum to reduce stressed behaviours.

Enjoy!

The Wisdom of Dr Temple Grandin

I listened to a webinar with Dr Temple Grandin. She’s on the autistic spectrum and has become a passionate spokesperson for kids on the spectrum.

I had a few lightbulb moments in how her observations and skills match how we teach kids meditation and mindfulness.

Hope you find it helpful.
