The 4 Spirit Steps
Across the globe, educators and providers are changing
borderline outcomes into miraculous results
with children living on the autism spectrum.
“As a parent, I have to say that some aspects of SAI tools entailed some work. But for the most part, every step provided me relief, and lightened my load! It works and is a very comforting way to relate to my son.”
“As a parent of an autistic child for nearly thirty years the Children of the Cosmos and the SAI approach tools have given me an insight into the nature of autism itself and the relational fields we share with our autistic children.”
-Caroline Coleman, Cornwall, England
“With SAI tools, everything CAN be different! Believe it!”
-Holly Wu, Director, Chinook Spirit Children’s Academy
“Autism SAI is a welcome addition to my “toolbox” and delightfully unlike any other work I have trained in. I found this method easy to use and positive results occurred and my work with children on the spectrum has certainly evolved to a new level!”
-Kim Siemers, Occupational Therapist, Durango, Colorado
“I find the tools in this book give me a great amount of power in an otherwise powerless situation. Those who are open-minded about truly helping their child/brother/friend with the struggles of autism and beyond (oh yes, SAI is for everyone) will be glad they went down this path.”
-Carrie Skluzak, BrainAbility Therapist, Denver, Colorado
“As a professional mental health therapist, I am grateful for a new set of tools. Reaching a client whether 5 or 95 on a spiritual level with SAI tools has provided me with a way to connect to clients that are not always easy to reach. I have such gratitude for seeing my perceived unreachable clients blossom.”
-Heather Abella, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Autism: The Spiritual Approach®
The 4 Spirit Steps
Balance Your Energy Bank Account
A simple and fun process, just like balancing a checking account that recharges you and the child(ren) in your care. Without the energy to work and play, no child or adult can thrive in any environment or intervention.
Discover A Child’s Spirit Temperament ™
and Your Own
When we run into meltdown and disconnect, there is often one or two simple adjustments we can make in the environment that will support us and the child(ren) in our care. But how do we know what is setting him off? When we know what nurtures a child;s spirit temperament and our own, the answers come easily.
Calm Challenging Behaviors with Love
When we come from a place of understanding the unmet need that the child is trying to tell us about through his challenging behavior, we can meet that need before he expresses in inappropriate ways. But HOW? Follow this process and make it easy to understand a child and what he is trying to tell us through his acting out.
Bridge the Distance
By applying the large variety of therapeutic visualization and meditative activities, we can connect to a higher level within ourselves and consequently, connect with the child, meeting him where he is. When a child feels that we are making an effort to reach him, he will begin to respond to us and cooperate in a whole new way.
Over the years, and in applying Autism: The Spiritual Approach worldwide, providers and parents report that the steps need not be used in a linear way. Once you get a sense of all 4 steps and the tools within each step, you will intuitively know what tools to try and how to combine them to bring joy, peace and miracles into your life and the life of a child. You need not learn the whole process at once. Grab a tool. Try it. You’ll love how it feels. You’ll love how it works. From the very first day.
