Alternative Autism Solutions is donating three copies of
Dr. Mary E. Riposo's book, Using Reiki with Children: A Guide for Parents and Professionals.
Reiki is done with the child fully clothed. During the session, the hands of the therapist are placed on or near specific areas of the body in order to activate the healing response. Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders often have sensory integration problems, which may result in discomfort with imposed touch. If this is the case, the hands can be placed above the body or on the child's hands or feet.
More information can be learned at the Alternative Autism Solutions website.
The books are available to US and Canadian twitter members.
