Autism - All Faiths Minister Offers His Spiritual Perspective

Woodcliff Lake, NJ (PressExposure) May 04, 2008 -- Autism is a brain development disorder that impairs social interaction and communication, and causes restricted and repetitive behavior, all starting before a child is three years old. “Autism the disorder that before 1990 was reported to affect just 4.7 out of every 10,000 American children now strikes 60 per 10,000, according to many estimates - the equivalent of 1 in 166 kids” says Time.com. There is no cure for Autism; however, with appropriate treatment and education, many children with the disorder can learn and develop.

“While there is no cure at this time for Autism that does not mean there is no hope” said Rev. Oreste J. D’Aversa, the author of the article Autism: A Spiritual Perspective - Options for Understanding and Clarification of the Disorder. “Autism may require some “out of the box thinking” using some non-traditional ways to work with those that have the disorder”.

D’Aversa is proposing a “holistic approach” in the examination of Autism to view the disorder from a different perspective, a more spiritually based perspective. Just as cell phones were science fiction 25 years ago and now as common as a cup of coffee in ones hand, Autism may now also require new thinking and the creation of new tools to work with those that have this developmental disability.

Just because there is no cure for Autism, parents and caregivers still need to care for there loved ones with Autism. There must always be hope that a breakthrough will happen, however, life does go on and the day to day realities must be dealt with.

D’Aversa is an all faiths minister and meditation instructor who has spent much of his career helping people learn how to use the power of their mind to deal with the modern day pressures of their professional and personal lives. Recently, during one of his meditation workshops, he realized that many of the same techniques he was teaching people could be applied to parents and caregivers to help them get a better understanding in working with those that have Autism in the hopes it would give them addition tools to work with this developmental disability.

“The easy to learn, techniques and exercises I propose in my article are meant to be used ‘in addition to and not instead of’ current modern day medical protocols,” D’Aversa said. “It gives parents and caregivers additional tools in their “Autism Tool box” to help the people in their life with Autism.”
