What is Autism?ASD: A New Perspective Podcast
Dr. Steven Gutstein talks about how what we think we know about autism may not be true and gives a new definition to help us redefine autism.
We need to teach children to reflect and you know, that’s so much a part of our program to be able to bookmark something, maybe something that doesn’t work or maybe something that does work. We have a whole lot of work on that.
Dr. Gutstein breaks down the complexities of Theory of Mind.
I haven’t found one paper written, and I’ve read everything, that talks about the potential for remediation of these areas: of neural remediation, of psychosocial remediation. Not one. It’s all about can we teach people other ways of functioning, or just neglecting it completely and not even thinking about it.
The main obstacle if you’re a parent is that your child is not coming to you with the excitement, the motivation to grow. But RDI can help.
Autism, social relationships, and relating to the self.
Dr. Steven Gutstein explains co-occurring conditions in autism and how they differ from autism itself.
A successful Guiding Relationship takes two active participants. But as autism interrupts natural development, infants shut down in their ability to participate and can offer nothing for parents to respond to or guide.
The most devastating consequence of ASD is the loss of access to a Guiding Relationship for infants, which is vital for their growth and development.
In this episode, Dr. Gutstein explain what is happening initially in the brains of ASD infants as they begin to diverge from typical development.
Dr. Gutstein continues to discuss the typical development of infants in order to lay a foundation for understanding what is happening to our ASD kids.
In this episode, Dr. Gutstein continues to discuss the similarities and differences of typically-developing infants and those who are later diagnosed with ASD.
In this first podcast, Dr. Steven Gutstein starts at the beginning by explaining what happens in infant development in the first months of life.
