Abstract

This chapter illustrates a simple and yet powerful accommodation to help individuals with movement differences in the spectrum of autism. Through the use of widely available video technology designed by the authors and supported by the anecdotal contribution of several self-advocate individuals in the spectrum, we can learn to appreciate the importance of flexibly adapting external dynamics present in video images with variable degrees of speed and highly variable self-generated bodily rhythms used to control the flow of the image presentation. The positive outcome of the intervention underscores once again the importance of taking into consideration the person’s physical needs and neurological predispositions. Guiding the person from the bottom up, rather than merely imposing the guidance from the top down through prompting or other unilateral means, helps the person respond better to adaptable visuomotor support.
