is excited to announce a new partnership with Ron Suskind and
A strengths-based approach to building social, emotional, practical, and executive functioning skills for people with an Autism Spectrum Diagnosis
The Affinity Method is an exciting new approach that uses your child’s unique interests – or affinities – as tools to expand social-emotional awareness and intelligence. By using their passions as pathways, we meet them where they are, learn more about how they use their interests to navigate the world, and draw out the connections between what they know and what we want to help them learn.
Meet Ron Suskind, founder of the Affinity Project,
and hear about how this exciting new partnership could benefit you!
Day: Monday, October 2nd, 2017
Location: NESCA office
55 Chapel St.
Newton, MA 02458
The method uses ground-breaking technology – an app called Sidekicks - to engage our clients. The client is called the Hero, Sidekicks are avatars; animated characters that live in the Hero’s smartphone or tablet app who act as the Hero’s friend. Behind the scenes, these avatars are controlled by various coaches - therapists, parents, and other individuals who wish to engage with Heroes through the app. When either a Hero or a Coach searches for video content, it will mirror simultaneously on the other paired device.
They can play, pause, discuss, enjoy, play again!
NESCA is proud to be one of the very first providers to offer use of the Sidekicks app in therapy sessions!
