The Rock and Water Program – Focus on Autism training focuses on effective communications strategies, exercises with intent to raise awareness, strategies to engage young people living with Autism, learning to play together skills (social inclusion) and most importantly, the need for teachers/supporting adults to be grounded themselves.
 
In the training course, an emphasis is given to the importance of increased body awareness and body movement. Many young people living with ASD won’t engage in sport, therefore have poor motor skills, coordination and muscle tone. Increased body awareness and body movement will improve a person living with Autism Spectrum overall well being.
 
The Autism Training outline includes issues around bullying. Many people, particularly young children living with ASD can be a target for bullying and teasing. The Rock and Water skills taught in the ASD training course include simple strategies such as walking posture that can help protect them from becoming a target.
 
The workshop will assist in increasing self-control and assertiveness, to develop body language awareness, to encourage better communication skills and to decrease feelings of anxiety. Master Instructors Marc Boas, Theo Kamevaar and Freerk Ykema have developed a new manual containing successful strategies, dozens of new exercises and up to date information about ASD.
