Autism Awareness With Story Grammar Marker®



MindWing Supports Autism Awareness Month!

I recently read a blog by a parent of a child with Autism called “My Son Has the Kind of Autism No One Talks About.” It really made me think about the struggles of this mother and of her son. They are the reason organizations like Autism Speaks® and others are so important.

Parents, families, schools, communities, and the child with Autism himself/herself all need support and understanding. MindWing’s materials help with aspects of Autism that include social learning problems, social communication disorders and work on expressing personal event narratives, facilitating conversation, building central coherence, Theory of Mind and perspective taking among other areas.

Being “aware” of Autism means that we know that no there are no books, activities and materials that are appropriate for ALL children with Autism. But still, MindWing’s goal is to help as many children as we can, regardless of diagnosis, age, culture, or ability.

Donation badgeFor every order placed on www.mindwingconcepts.com, we will donate a portion of the sale to Autism Speaks, The Autism Society of America, Pathlight, and The Chapman Farm School. Order an amazing manual, tool or set of materials anywhere in our store, and feel good about helping Autism advance research and increase understanding of Autism spectrum disorder.

FREE WEBINAR - AUTISM AWARENESS and Story Grammar Marker®! — April 20th

Maryellen Head Shot with Autism Awareness RibbonIt’s Autism Awareness Month. Story-based (narrative) intervention was cited as a treatment by the U.S. National Autism Center.

One thing that is difficult for children with Autism is expressing the personal event narrative. Story Grammar Marker® is the ideal tool for helping children master this task. The linear, icon-based tool provides something meaningful to literally hold on to in order to calmly organize their thoughts.

Even more than telling their story, Story Grammar Marker®’s methodology and materials can help children to take perspective, develop Theory of Mind, become critical thinkers, build Central Coherence, solve problems, initiate & repair conversation to establish relationships, recognize feelings through verbal and nonverbal cues, infer, and plan and write with cohesion. To learn more about this approach, please register for our FREE WEBINAR to be held on April 20th at 6:30 PM (EDT) - Register Today!
