Mind/Body Techniques for Asperger’s Syndrome : The Way of the Pathfinder – Ron Rubio

Mind/Body Techniques for Asperger's Syndrome : The Way of the Pathfinder

‘After a few sessions with you, Nathan became aware of how he was carrying himself. We noticed a change in his gait. He was straighter, taller and more assertive in his walking. His gait was that of a confident man… He beamed with pride as I went on and on about how differently he presented himself. It shook me up!’ – letter to Ron Rubio from the mother of a 22-year-old client with Asperger’s Syndrome People with Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) typically experience difficulty with balance, coordination and sensory awareness. The mind/body exercises in this book help young people with AS improve these skills, leading to greater self-confidence, and independence. Easy to use, with photographs to show how exercises are done correctly, these techniques can have an immediate effect on how an individual stands, sits, moves, thinks of him- or herself, and relates to others. The author’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. Mind/Body Techniques for Asperger’s Syndrome is an introduction to Pathfinder training techniques for both parents of adolescents with AS and professionals including physical therapists, pediatricians, and special education teachers who work with them.
