The Sensory Funnel

The Sensory Funnel: Why you should never focus on teaching someone with Asperger's social skills first (and what to do instead)

sensoryfunnelWhen you are someone with Asperger's, the world is very overwhelming. In fact it is so overwhelming that until you help them become less overwhelmed, teaching any social or executive functioning skills is almost useless.

So instead of focusing on teaching social skills (which is a top down approach), you follow the Sensory Funnel from the bottom up and start by addressing sensory overwhelm, then move up to emotional needs and beyond.

Join our email list and we'll give you a free guide on using the Sensory Funnel, where to start with people with Asperger's, and how to help them flourish.

The Sensory Funnel Guide Contains...

  • The Main Idea

    This is where we teach you each step of the Sensory Funnel, how it works, and how to help someone with Asperger’s by helping them with their sensory and emotional needs first.

  • Full Interactive Transcript

    The main content comes with a fully searchable and interactive transcript. Follow along, skip to a certain section or print for later. Everyone learns in different ways, so we want to make sure you get the information in a way that fits you.

  • Answers To Common Questions

    You’ll also get answers to real life questions asked by our AE+ support group members. We’ll go in depth and share our experiences, best practices and tips & tricks we’ve learned through our experience living with Asperger’s.

  • Guidance By People Who Get It

    Asperger Experts was created and is staffed by people with Asperger’s, parents, and caring individuals who get it, because we’ve been there. We use and implement everything we teach, because it makes our lives better too!

About Asperger Experts

Asperger Experts is a transformational media company based out of Seattle, Washington that enlivens, empowers and educates people with Asperger's, their families, and the communities in which they live.

It was created in 2012 and is supported by parents, people with Asperger's, and professionals dedicated to serving and assisting others through sharing knowledge and building communities.

The core of our work focuses on planning, producing and distributing highly transformational courses, as well as creating and managing online communities for people with Asperger’s and their parents.

Our courses are all created by us, drawing from our first hand experience having either lived with Asperger’s, or raised someone on the spectrum.

Our communities are filled with parents, people with Asperger’s, teachers, therapists and others who have had direct and personal experience with life on the spectrum.

We believe in taking our own life experiences and sharing them with the world, and are fortunate to reach over a quarter million people each day with our live videos, courses, workshops, articles and videos.

Thank you for supporting us and our work. We literally couldn't do this without you.
