Class Curriculum

Part 1: Feelings & Sensations

Beyond The 5 Senses
The most common form of overwhelm isn't sight, sound, smell, etc.. It's actually the internal felt sense in the body. We'll unpack this in detail, and tell you what it means to you.
Tools & Strategies For Feeling Comfortable
Our favorite forms of therapy & meditation that make an immense difference.
Overwhelm & Defense Mode
The most common way people with Asperger's get overwhelmed and into Defense Mode is that their feelings and sensations (both internal and external) get to be too much to handle and process in one moment. It all becomes too much and thus a meltdown is triggered.
Part 2: The Bodymind

Vagal Tone
The most important biological measurement... that most people ignore
Gut Health
How does your diet affect Defense Mode.. and what can you do about it?
Heart Rate Variability
Simple biofeedback tools to help you regulate your heart, breathing and fight or flight response.
Part 3: Environment & Relationships

Often Overlooked
The environment is probably the most overlooked area of Defense Mode overwhelm. You can work with feelings & sensations and change your biology all day long, but if you are in a toxic, hostile and threatening environment, then nothing is going to change.
Internal Environments
How your own thoughts can be just as toxic of an environment, and what to do about it.
Limbic Hostility
The fear of being judged is real. Here's what it actually does to a person (and how to deal with it the right way)
Part 4: Specific Considerations

Helping Others
The surprisingly simple & controllable way to get someone else out of Defense Mode.
Holding Space
What do you do when they need someone to listen, but don't want any help or advice?
Deep Listening
How to help them feel safe and secure... without saying a single word.
Part 5: Wrap Up

Common Mistakes
The most common mistakes people make that keep them stuck in Defense Mode (and how to avoid them).

Getting Started

Course Reviews

I purchased one of your programs a couple of years ago.  Very helpful advice/information. I  really felt that the program was sincere and honest, especially since it had been developed by a young person or persons who had grown up with Aspergers. 

Sharing first-hand experience with parents gave me hope for our children's future. I admire the courage that these young folks showed by sharing their life experiences with the world: they should be honored rewarded for this most-needed undertaking.

The price is right.
