When the foundations of Dynamic Intelligence are set in place, the child begins to use their mind as a very powerful tool.
One of the critical roles of being a parent is to be a mind guide. We know that. And if you have a child with autism, you can’t do it until we help you to develop this and to help the child activate that growth, so you can begin to feel comfortable with it to start orienting more.
Traditional static intelligence is necessary, but it’s not sufficient to function in our modern world, which is complex and dynamic in nature.
