Finding Your Flow in 2022
Featuring a Special Guest
Discussed in this episode:
Why is it some days everything seems to flow with ease and grace, while other days it seems like chaos?
In this episode, I interview my husband Andrew to discuss the concepts made popular by researcher Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi in his book “FLOW”.
✅ How to utilise Motivation to make a difference to you and the kids you know
✅ Challenge Skills Matrix. Don’t be afraid of extending and challenging. This is covered in depth within the Temple Grandin Course Lesson 1 – Stretching. See below for more information on the course. This is very similar to the educational concept called Zone of Proximal Development – “is the distance between what a learner is not currently capable of doing unsupported, and what they can do unsupported.” (source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zone_of_proximal_development).
✅ Belief “It is lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges and I believe in myself” – Muhammad Ali
✅ Feedback and planning. Teach what to do when make a mistake
✅ Arousal Awareness: Using breaks to increase engagement. Discussed further in Episode 59 linked below. Do students need silence or movement. Great book “The Kids Guide to being Awesome” also below to purchase
✅ Time Out. The mind and body needs recharging. See Spoon Theory pg 65 in my Book… A Manual to Provide Support and Care to Adults with Autism Spectrum
