Valerie MacLean will speak about the international award-winning HANDLE approach. The presentation explores the work of Judith Bluestone, the originator of the HANDLE approach. In her book, The Fabric of Autism , Weaving the Threads into a Cogent Theory, Bluestone combines her personal autistic experience with academic research and more than 40 years of clinical practice to craft a unique and compelling view of the phenomenon called autism. This presentation is designed for those who interact with children and adults experiencing sensory, cognitive, motor, social, and behavioural difficulties. We recognize that many struggling individuals are attending to their inner needs, and have less attention and energy to learn and develop efficiently. This is often the case with those who are hyper or hypo sensitive to factors in their environment, those with neurodevelopmental challenges, or those with sensory integration issues.
