"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift"
Parents, be wary of close minded or small thinking professionals who can't be open minded and receptive. This could include your child's teacher, ABA therapist, OT, etc. When teaching or caring for a child with Autism, creativity, flexibility, inference, and imagination are key. I regularly listen to my intuition when working with my kiddos, as I strive to make a personal connection with each child.
To parents I would remind you that YOU are the expert on your child, and your instinct is a valuable tool when evaluating any therapeutic method, company, program, or professional. Trust your instincts and seek ABA professionals who are passionate and creative.
A closed mind can't open minds.
To all my wonderful blog readers, see you in 2013!
