As massage therapists, we are in a position to provide invaluable hands-on work to children on the Autism spectrum.
Currently, 1 in 36 children fall on the Autism spectrum; they are often misunderstood. By 2025, Autism prevalence is expected to reach 1 in 2 children.
Tami Goldstein’s continuing education courses teach you how to best serve their needs. To effectively work with this population, you need to first understand Autism. Gaining a foundation in Autism, its characteristics, and how SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) impacts children will prepare you for success when approached by or desiring to reach out more effectively to this clientele.
Tami’s courses provide a foundational understanding and tools for effective therapy: how different touch modalities address sensory systems in the body, and how understanding a particular child’s presentation of their disability can lead to successful and therapeutic massage sessions. We share how to prepare the work environment and provide helpful health intake questions.
The instructor, Tami Goldstein, uses her extensive background working with these individuals both personally and professionally. She combines storytelling with role-playing and group activities to help guide you toward providing the greatest benefit to this rewarding population.
