Striving toward our Greatest Outcomes

 

“The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Neither love without knowledge, nor knowledge without love can produce a good life.” - Bertrand Russell

 

 

 

 

 

Most special needs and autistic people lose their committed one-on-one educator relationships after they reach 21 years old.

 

Unfortunately, their brains begin to prune away all the soft & hard skills they've learned.


Its nobody's fault. That's how brains work. Use it or lose it!

 

Fortunately, new pathways can be made or restored with relative ease, up until 30 years old.

 

The executive function system of the brain helps us understand new topics, focus on a task, and cope when things go wrong.

 

Many people who are atypical learners do not have strong executive functioning skills.

This can be a result of a developmental difference, poverty, or trauma [or any combo].

We strengthen executive function through 11 metrics

Memory, Reflection, Self-control, Awareness, Resilience, Planning, Processing Speed, Positive Experience, Focus & Flexibility.

 

These components form the basis of our individualized coaching packages, specifically designed for atypical learners.

While some skills like Task Completion, and Planning have direct practices; skills like Resilience are more holistic, and are needed for any and all achievement.

Resilient individuals have a practiced capacity to more strongly identify with their positive outcomes; keeping them emotionally buoyant through adversity.

 

Resilience is directly correlated to having a committed educator // mentor relationship, and a nurturing environment.

Metrics for Executive Function

Memory

Building systems to stay current in relationships and responsibilities.

Task Completion

Mastering a task helps build a mentee's confidence and independence.

Planning

Mentee's build strategies and tactics that work toward their outcomes.

Focus

Repetition and practice of multi-step tasks helps build focus and ease.

Reflection

Journal exercises & conversations about archetype, uncover personal outcomes and values.

Awareness

Like all people, mentee's have blind spots;  bringing a fuller sense of self, and situation boosters engagement, and sensitivity.

Processing Speed

Mnemonic devices, and hand fasts, or other stims can help speed up processing times during sensory overload.

Flexibility

Mentees learn to return to the present task, after an interruption, or unexpected change of plan.

Self-Control

Redirecting the mentee to their prioritized outcomes helps reinforce healthy inhibition.

Resilience

Mentees who meet adversity with emotional scaffolding can minimize time lost in an upset and become less susceptible to future triggers.

Positive Experience

Mentees deserve experiences that demonstrate to them their gifts, character, and wholeness.

Principled Process

Adventure Vehicle

Hey New Friend,

I've spent the last seven years developing a unique process of coaching people with autism and special needs; my vocation is working with aspergers and autistic men.

My relationship centered approach is fortified with a curriculum of advocacy, emotional scaffolding, and skills training. Too many autistic men are repressed, isolated, and in need of personal commitment. 

 

Where some see lack of motivation, I see an opportunity to develop execution function, and greater sense of self. Each one of us deserves the opportunity to develop our own agenda, and purposefulness in our lives.

My vision for these adult learners, is to marry spiritual values to important everyday practices that support executive function; the biological foundation for learning readiness.

Please reach me at Peter@deepblueleadership.com to schedule a free consultation.

Thanks for stopping by Deep Blue Leadership!

Yours,

Peter Mike-Mayer

The Mission:

of Deep Blue Leadership is to develop equity by accompanying men with aspergers, and autism, to greater knowledge of their gifts and person.

 

Radical Acceptance

We find purpose through knowing our unique contribution & gifts, rather than trying to change the hand we were dealt.

Equity

We all deserve a seat at the table, and the opportunity to live our dreams through support of our individual agency.

Accompaniment

People with autism and special needs aren't broken and we're not here to fix them. We walk alongside our clients, learning together, with the relationship as our core curriculum.
