Over the years, programs for Individuals with autism have changed. Originally, programs focused on speech acquisition, cognitive development, and behavior problems. Programs now incorporate concern for quality of relationships, social skills, leisure skills, and other dimensions of the child's life. While aversive or punishing methods were more commonly used years ago, these methods are rarely used today.
Our work at Globe Star has also evolved over the years. As the understanding of autism has changed and the frequency of autism diagnoses has increased, Globe Star has stayed on the cutting edge by presenting at conferences, participating in continuing education opportunities, and most importantly, working directly with Individuals with autism and their families. Globe Star has taken a proactive stance by creating an autism program based on Gentle Teaching.
