Our friend and fellow behavior analyst, Alex, is pretty passionate about inclusion. She’s so passionate that we asked her to write an article about it.
The goal of a mindfulness practice is to help exercise the skills you need to acknowledge and accept the moment you are in as well as the thoughts, emotions, and feelings you encounter in that moment. No judgment. No trying to ignore them. Just being aware and accepting of all the sensations: physical, mental, and emotional. Mindfulness is an effective tool for every human, and especially beneficial for children with disabilities.
