Over the past twenty years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The number of adults being diagnosed with ASD is also increasing. This condition ranges from mild to severe, but most individuals with ASD experience sensory processing challenges, such as extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch, and movement. These individuals often have difficulty receiving information from their senses and integrating this data into a meaningful whole. The Alexander Technique is ideally suited for helping people with ASD form sensory integration and body awareness, and comprises a system of physical training that is especially beneficial for people on the Autism Spectrum. The Alexander Technique is also effective for helping individuals with ASD manage the stress of their overactive nervous systems. This book explains these sensory processing issues from the perspective of an Alexander Technique teacher who has herself learned to manage these sensory challenges. Readers will learn how to use the Alexander Technique to help individuals with ASD achieve sensory integration and stress relief.
