Breaking the Barriers of AutismThe Autism Site
Communication is difficult for everyone on the autism spectrum to varying degrees, and can be an incredibly stressful endeavor.
Joey Lowenstein was diagnosed with ASD at a very young age, and for most of his life he was unable to communicate altogether with his family. One day, when Joey was a teen, his mother introduced him to transcendental meditation — which has been shown to significantly relieve stress — and she believes that their short, daily meditations have helped Joey improve immensely.
Joey learned to communicate with others using a letter-board, and has even started the Joey Lowenstein Foundation, which seeks to break the barriers of autism.
Watch this video to see Joey’s story, and learn more about how meditation has helped him break barriers.
