Autism specialists Tali Berman and Sean Fitzgerald (pictured) will host a three day seminar to train parents of children with autism their pioneering Whole Child Approach, taking place on 2 – 4 June 2017 in Kingston upon Thames, London. Having both trained together professionally in the US, Sean and Tali applied the knowledge and tools gained from their 40 years' combined experience to create their progressive technique and are teaching it together for the first time at the event.
Tali and Sean’s uniquely integrated Whole Child Approach is centered around the pillars of communication, life skills, learning, motor and movement - all of which are rooted in a single foundation of social engagement.
Central to the approach is belief in the true intelligence of a child (whether they are able to communicate understanding or not), using their interests and motivations to inspire meaningful growth and empowering patents to have the tools required to facilitate this. From toilet training and healthy sleeping and eating habits to becoming more social and connected, this comprehensive method enables parents to unlock their child’s potential, whilst providing them with the confidence and clarity that comes from knowing how to best help them.
Sean and Tali have served hundreds of families with autistic children around the world, successfully training parents to run home play programmes for their kids.
“Our years of training taught us that rather than using individual therapists to focus on say motor skills, communication skills or play skills, our integrated technique allows for deeper and more meaningful growth,” says Tali. “Children who have benefited from our programs have transformed in incredible ways including transitioning to mainstream schools and integrating with their peers, making friends, communicating more fully and living a more independent life.”
Sean and Tali’s Autism Workshop ‘Unlock Your Child’s Potential” takes place at Studio 52A, 52a Canbury Park Road, Kingston upon Thames KT2 6JX from Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th June 2017. Early bird tickets £497.
