"My approach to intervention is rooted in respect for child development and focuses on making the mundane meaningful, looking at daily interactions as opportunities for learning and growth while respecting the uniqueness of the individual and family. It’s about setting high expectations for long term quality of life and relationships for individuals on the spectrum and implementing a specific and doable plan to get there one step at a time.”

The Power of Thought
I found myself thinking about individuals on the spectrum who sometimes display rather static imagination, while their neurotypical counter parts display dynamic/ever changing imaginary play. The leap I considered was if just the "imagination" of these scenarios changes neural connections... that so too would the static strengthen static connections.
Quite humbling exactly how pervasive a spectrum disorder is... and on the flip side how absolutely complex our neurology is.
