Mind/Body Techniques for Asperger's Syndrome: the Way of the Pathfinder by Ron Rubio


People with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) typically experience difficulty with balance, coordination and sensory awareness. The mind/body exercises in this book help young people with AS improve these skills, leading to greater self-confidence, and independence.

Easy to use, with photographs to show how exercises are done correctly, these techniques can have an immediate effect on how an individual stands, sits, moves, thinks of him- or herself, and relates to others. The author's approach integrates ideas and practices from disciplines including martial arts, Eastern principles of mindfulness, techniques of visualization, breathing, posture, and movement, and the practice of mentoring.

Seems like a good book. I am convinced that distorted sensory processing is a very important part of both Asperger's and autism (and many more brain disorders). This is what my own research and work is based upon. If we cannot perceive the world correctly, we cannot react to it correctly. I shall read the book!
