Manage episode 275059954 series 2806933
The Miller Method is a system-based approach that addresses children’s developmental requirements as an autism therapy. It was discovered by Dr. Arnold Miller. He used a cognitive-developmental Systems Approach and used a two-pronged plan(data source). The first plan involves transforming children’s abnormal systems into functional behaviors. Meanwhile, the second strategy includes introducing developmental activities into a systematic and repetitive way using objects and people to fill developmental gaps.
Especially, the Miller Method uses high board systems to increase a child’s body awareness. This eventually helps them become more aware of themselves and their surroundings.
GOALS OF THE MILLER METHOD
Miller Method has four primary goals:
- Assesses the adaptive significance of the children’s behavior.
- Attempts to transform the behavior into a functional activity.
- Tries to expand and guide the children from closed ways into social and communicative exchanges·
- Guides professionals and parents in systems to follow and facilitate children affected with Autism spectrum disorder.
