Attention Autism originates from the idea that successful communication is dynamic, engaging and joyful.
We learn best when we work with enthusiasm, motivation and creativity. We remember good times and shared experiences.
Children, whether they are autistic or not, make sense of the world around them by taking in information through their senses, working out what it means to them and relating it to what they understand. They build a bank of knowledge and experience that shapes how they interact, develop and grow as individuals. The problems start when you are not sure what a child is taking in. What do you do if they don't seem interested or don't share any interests with you?
The answer is to make your interactions irresistible!
Attention Autism has been designed to help parents and professionals give their child an irresistible invitation to learn using fantastic activities and having a really good time whilst doing so. The Attention Autism approach provides the child with an experience worth communicating about.
