At the heart of what we do is an unwavering belief that growth is possible in the life of individuals with autism. This foundational belief comes from the latest autism research and our experience with thousands of cases where the child’s growth-seeking drive has been activated, making a way for the crucial parent-child Guiding Relationship to form and for Dynamic Intelligence to develop.

Static Thinking vs Dynamic Thinking When you live in a static thinking world, things either are either similar to one another or they are different.

Competence, as we know, is the best motivator. So when we, as parent guides, start introducing just-noticeable-differences and the child who doesn’t really like change sees the difference and suddenly feels very competent, that child is now motivated to take on his own learning.

Dynamic Intelligence opens the door for children with autism to learn that their experience is a very valuable commodity for them.

One of the things that we think about as parents is, “where is my child going to be as an adult?” When you have a child with autism, these thoughts about our children’s future become greater: “What will happen to her when I’m gone?” “Will he be a burden on the community?” Sometimes, we worry about our child’s independence so much that we even avoid…
