How can you support your students/clients using the Davis Autism Approach® program?
As a professional, whether you are a teacher, therapist or psychologist, the Davis Autism Approach Program is an invaluable tool to incorporate into your professional skillset and toolkit.
The Davis Autism Approach program was created by Ron Davis, an autistic man to help other autistic individuals.
This program uses a gentle, non-intrusive approach that empowers each individual to participate more fully in life in the ways they choose. It deeply respects and develops each person’s individual character and essence.
This program is ideal for autistic individuals over the age of eight. Younger clients can complete the Davis Stepping Stones Program, which has been designed to deliver the beginning steps of the Davis Autism Approach to young children.
Clients who have completed the Davis Autism Approach Program have experienced too many positive changes to list here. These are some examples of the types of improvements Davis Autism Facilitators regularly see in their clients’ ability to participate more fully in life. These outcomes are in the process of being verified through independent research:
