So many autism professionals out there apply what would otherwise be sound methodologies in a rigid and inflexible way resulting in heartbreak for parents as they grapple with whether or not they are doing the right thing by their child. This type of inflexible approach often elicits a fear of learning in the child or learning that does not generalize to other contexts. We created the Movement Method guidelines in direct response to this to ensure that anyone applying our methods, be they a parent, teacher or therapist/professional, will do so in a flexible, pressure free and child led way - thus optimizing their chance of success.

This two day intensive course will allow you to go more in-depth into the Movement Method guidelines in order to show you how to really set up not only the child but yourself for success. The cost of the course is $295 and the price includes a light lunch.

Participating in Movement Method 1 and Movement Method 2 qualifies you to apply to be evaluated to become an Independent Basic Movement Method Mentor.
