ASD: A New Perspective

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.
