Where Did The Autism Epidemic Come From, At the Invitation of New York area Waldorf Educators

31 Aug

What a great day yesterday! I was asked to speak in front of a group of 150 Waldorf Educators at the Waldorf School of Garden City, and it was one of those life changing experiences for me. They were all so talented, and thoughtful in their interactions with children, and their insights absolutely blew me away. For instance, I shared with them a circle we, at the Rebecca School, had created for our kids, and then their movement people showed me how to make it much better. What had taken us 6 months of blood, sweat and tears to create, they immediately understood, and then improvisationally, on the spot, made delightful improvements.

It made me realize even more clearly, that there are very many people, across disciplines, across populations, who use respectful, developmentally appropriate, thinking based supports for the children and adults they serve. We need to unite, and make our voices heard! The people we serve deserve nothing less.

The clip above is a little bit of me talking about the full-cup theory, and how it leads to a developmental stall.

If you were are a Waldorf Educator, whether you were there in Garden City yesterday or not, and whether you school is accredited or not, you can fill out the form below and get the slides from my presentation, and the video of the Three Billy Goats Circle.
