Range and Distance are just two examples of the over one hundred concepts Suzanne has named and defined as nonverbal concepts. Parents might think they have an understanding of Range and Distance, and they do. They have a verbal thinker’s understanding of these two concepts. Like many other nonverbal concepts, Range and Distance may have names verbal thinkers are used to seeing, but these concepts have very different significance and meaning within the context of nonverbal thinking.
Just as verbal thinking children are shown how verbal concepts work in a verbal context early on in life by their verbal thinking parents, nonverbal thinking children need to be shown how nonverbal concepts function individually and interact together within the fabric of their nonverbal consciousness by someone who understands how nonverbal thinking works, so they can develop properly and become happy, confident, and independent-minded people. This is what we do during sessions at the Nonverbal Consciousness Center for Autistic Children.
At Autism Baby, we believe special needs children diagnosed with autism, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Asperger’s Syndrome, PDD-NOD, or non-verbal autism, do not all suffer from separate inborn neurodevelopmental conditions or behavioral disorders such as these. We believe children are usually diagnosed with any one of these conditions because psychology professionals do not understand, and do not want to believe there is a single underlying issue that causes the child’s developmental delays, sensory problems, speech and motor skills disabilities, communication difficulties, and social challenges, or lack of social skills all together, and/or his apparent mental disabilities. That single underlying issue is the lack of socialization in the autistic child’s own nonverbal consciousness.
At Autism Baby, we do understand this, and know that by socializing the nonverbal thinking child in his own nonverbal consciousness, we are allowing his normal nonverbal thinking brain to develop cognitively in a way that is consistent with his own consciousness.
The Nonverbal Exercises
The Autism Baby program itself consists of physical exercises that Suzanne has created in order to develop the nonverbal thinking mind, and socialize the autistic child in nonverbal thinking. These exercises enable him to get out of the autistic state he is presently in, and go back to being the normal nonverbal thinker he was when he was born. With our program, he learns how to develop his nonverbal thinking brain properly this time around.
Looking to the Future
Keep in mind the nonverbal thinking socialization we do is necessary for the nonverbal child if he is going to be able to function well in verbal environments like school and other extra-curricular activities, and should not be eliminated once the child starts to look and act normal. Getting him into a verbal school and then stopping his nonverbal thinking socialization should never be the goal. This nonverbal thinking socialization is what makes it possible for the nonverbal thinking child to function well in verbal environments.
The child might seem “normal” after he has had nonverbal thinking training and socialization because now, for the first time, he is a nonverbal thinker using nonverbal thinking. Remember, he has not suddenly turned into a verbal thinker. He will never be a verbal thinker, and that should not be the goal, because that is not who he is. In fact, a nonverbal thinking child will always appear to have a disorder as long as he is taught to use verbal thinking methods. The child should always be respected for having a nonverbal consciousness and using nonverbal thinking methods.
