Increasing Engagement through Novel Experiences
“Establishing meaningful emotional and physical engagement is difficult for children and adults with autism. The introduction of novelty into daily routines can increase sensory and cognitive awareness and thus increase the chances of being more connected to people and what is going on in their environment. The result of cognitive and emotional relatedness is increased social and emotional intelligence.” By Rebecca Sperber, M.S., MFT.
