Our Proprietary Method

Our proprietary motor-sensory-language approach is based on a foundation of certain
principles. Those principles are a dedication to neurodiversity affirming practices, such
as using respectful terminology, inclusivity and accessibility, getting rid of antiquated
functioning labels and using a support needs approach, individualized support,
presuming competence, strength-based programming, self-determination and
autonomy, challenging stigmas and stereotypes, and using innovative evidence based
practice, trauma-informed care, and an emphasis on co-regulation instead of
behaviorism and compliance.

Neurodiversity is the concept that all humans vary in terms of our neurocognitive ability,
and everyone has both strengths and weaknesses.

Creating environments, systems, and practices that are inclusive and accessible to all
neurotypes, ensuring that neurodivergent individuals can fully participate in society,
education, and employment.

Presuming competence is about recognizing that an individual has capacity to
understand, think, learn and do, instead of walking into a room and defining an
individual by their challenges and our own assumptions or biases.

Respecting autonomy is about honoring an individual’s right to control their own body as
well as make their own decisions.

We utilize evidence-based
practices while also being open to innovation and adaptive strategies.

We utilize co-regulation as
the foundation for all our programming.

Words are powerful, they can either lift us up or bring us down.

The spectrum is circular not linear.
