'After a few sessions with you, Nathan became aware of how he was carrying himself. We noticed a change in his gait. He was straighter, taller and more assertive in his walking. His gait was that of a confident man... He beamed with pride as I went on and on about how differently he presented himself. It shook me up!' - letter to Ron Rubio from the mother of a 22-year-old client with Asperger's Syndrome People with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) typically experience difficulty with balance, coordination and sensory awareness. The mind/body exercises in this book help young people with AS improve these skills, leading to greater self-confidence, and independence. Easy to use, with photographs to show how exercises are done correctly, these techniques can have an immediate effect on how an individual stands, sits, moves, thinks of him- or herself, and relates to others. The author's approach integrates ideas and practices from disciplines including martial arts, Eastern principles of mindfulness, techniques of visualization, breathing, posture, and movement, and the practice of mentoring. Mind/Body Techniques for Asperger's Syndrome is an introduction to Pathfinder training techniques for both parents of adolescents with AS and professionals including physical therapists, pediatricians, and special education teachers who work with them.

Read this book for practical support in improving confidence and self-esteem and reducing anxiety and frustration - particularly for clients who find 'talking therapy' challenging. The core principles can however be applied to anyone, and are a thought-provoking method of encouraging introspection and empowerment. -- Speech & Language Therapy in Practice
The author's approach integrates ideas and practices from martial arts discipline, Eastern principles of mindfulness, visualisation, breathing, principles of posture and movement, and from mentoring. -- Human Givens
I found myself pleasantly surprised by the amount of care that has gone into the structure of this book, so if you have enough discipline to apply it, I would recommend this book. -- Asperger United
