Autism, Motivation & Overcoming Life's Stressors
Parents and professionals will learn practical methods to motivate children and young adults with autism to learn new life skills, prepare for transition, and gain independence. Ron examines common hindrances to growth, decision-making, and independence and ways to overcome them. Many students and young adults with autism experience severe depression and anxiety due to their lack of social interaction, a failure complex, perfectionist mindset, and sensory issues. Educators and parents will be equipped to help these individuals deal with his or her depression and anxiety, and gain self-confidence.
Sandison shares inspiring stories from his interviews and articles throughout his presentation like Armani Williams, the first NASCAR driver with autism, Peter Lantz, a professional video game designer, Tarik El-Abour a professional baseball player, Walker Aurand, a division 1 college hockey player, and many more. Ron also shares his own personal struggles with depression, anxiety, motivation from autism and how he was able to overcome and become a dad, author, professional, and motivational speaker.
