VISION Is More Than Meets The Eye



Parents of a child with autism are often confused by their child’s behaviors.  Things like poor eye contact, spinning objects, inflexibility, and tantrums.

Figuring out what to do, if anything, is a big source of frustration and overwhelm.

Instead of seeing such behaviors as ‘bad’, it’s more helpful to get curious. What’s causing these behaviors?  Why is my child doing them?

With awareness and intention, we can get better at noticing the clues that can lead to the root cause.  There are scores of possibilities and every child is unique.

This week we focus on one possible root cause that is often overlooked.

Vision is an important and little understood concept.  It means more than eyesight.
