Creative Cognitive Approaches in the Treatment and Education of the Severely Autistic Child
“At its core, autism is a disorder of relating and communicating. Due to challenges with sensory processing, cognitive development, language acquisition and socialization, children with autism have severe impairment in their ability to connect and communicate with other people. Individualized Educational Programs (IEP) routinely include goals for sensory regulation, communication, behavioral problems and socialization, but not goals written with clear strategies aimed at improving cognitive functioning whereby independent problem-solving skills are developed.” By Rebecca Sperber, M.S., MFT.
