SubTitle- How the Polyvagal Theory and Brain Plasticity Help Us Make Sense of Autism
Author- Holly Bridges
This is the first book to explain the Polyvagal Theory as it applies to autism in simple terms for parents and professionals. Incorporating Dr Anat Baniel's work in brain plasticity, it presents a new way of understanding autism and supporting children on the spectrum with strategies to strengthen the mind-body connection.
Outlining a new, optimistic way to understand autism, this concise and accessible book offers practical ideas to help children on the spectrum grow.
The Polyvagal Theory suggests autism is a learnt response by the body - a result of the child being in a prolonged state of 'fight or flight' while their nervous system is still developing. This book explains the theory in simple terms and incorporates recent developments in brain plasticity research (the capacity of the brain to change throughout life) to give parents and professionals the tools to strengthen the child's brain-body connection and lessen the social and emotional impact of autism.
