What's the difference between the brain of an autist, and someone who's experienced trauma?

Not as much as you might think.

“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 people with identified EF challenges lose their one-on-one educator relationships after they reach 21 years old. Some people may have EF Challenges and never receive a diagnosis or supports.

 

Our brains have plasticity that allows us to develop new pathways can be made or restore lost pathways with relative ease, up until 30 years old.

 

The executive functioning system of the brain helps us understand new topics, focus on a task, and cope when things go wrong. It is our foundation {if we consider our brain a building}.

 

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 can strengthen executive function through practicing sports, movement like yoga or martial arts, artistic expression like singing, games like chess, or even spiritual practices like prayer or meditation.

 

Here are eleven metrics that can be improved by these practices.

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; they identify with their successes over their failures.

 

Resilience is directly correlated to having a committed educator or mentor relationships with authentic lived experiences with EF challenges.

Hey Folks,

Please join our new Facebook group here. I am implicitly including people with EF challenges and neurodivergence from trauma, and adverse conditions {like poverty, addiction, or connection to the justice system}.

DEEP BLUE is a resource for self-determination, and peer support for people with EF challenges {like myself}.

 

This is a community for neurodivergent people to contribute to a wider conversation of diversity, contributing their input, and supporting each other as we go.

Cheers,

Peter Mike-Mayer

Founder

 

 

The Mission

to develop equity, to accompany neurodivergent folks, to a greater knowing of their gifts, and purpose. 

Build a Bigger Table

We are better together, and have more in common than in difference. Resources are best when maximized and shared.

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 EF challenges 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.
