"It Doesn't Work For Everyone": A Question Of Readiness Rather Than Efficacy

A lot of times on our website and Facebook page we see people that say something to the equivalent of “This is great, but it doesn’t work for everyone! Each person is different. If you’ve met one person with Autism, you’ve met one person with Autism”.

And we agree to a point. But there is another side that most people miss.

Let’s rephrase “It doesn’t work for everyone” to “Not everyone is ready for it to work”


Because from the hundreds of thousands of interactions we’ve had with people, we’ve noticed some patterns that DO work for just about everyone (assuming they are ready).

Getting out of Defense Mode WILL work for everyone, because it is based in the science of Vagal Tone. And since everyone that is alive has a nervous system, it works.

However, the vast majority of people are not fully ready to get out of Defense Mode because it requires being with it, holding space for yourself and engaging in Blue Line actions (rather than red line).

To use another example: If you are eating junk food all the time and want to become healthier, switching to good, real, healthy food grown in the soil WILL work. The question is not “Will it work for me?” but “Am I ready for it to work?”

For most people, they aren’t ready for that particular thing, and thus it “doesn’t work”. That’s why we created the AE Process, so that you can find which step you are ready for and implement a change in your life that fits with your current experience and state of being.

Note: If you'd like to get the complete list of everything that we've tried and confirmed works for us, our clients and customers (and you are ready!), get our "Here's What Works" book here.

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 staffed 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.
