Saskia Buma | Head Trainer | Autism-Friendly Coach Master
Thanks to my two sons, I now have a huge amount of knowledge in the field of autism. I have learned a lot through trial and error. What works and what does not? How do you solve problems you run into? And how do you change your own attitude? Because as a parent or professional of someone with autism you must be very flexible, creative, enterprising, active, curious, inquisitive, communicative, patient and more.
All this put me on a path in which I wanted to participate in an Autism-friendly world. In which everyone can participate on an equal footing in their own way. I have done my training and coaching courses in NLP and learned about American methods such as Floortime and Son-Rise. I did the autism specialization at the Delfos academy in 2016. In January 2020 I followed the week-long course at Dr Joe Dispenza in Dubai and in February 2020 the trainer course Neurochangesolutions in Palm Springs America.
Throughout my own learning process, I have (co-)founded and led organisations, Stichting Mama Vita, Stichting Reager en Coöperatie Ouderkrachtvoortkind. I counsel families where autism plays a role and share my knowledge in lectures that I now do together with my son Merlijn.
Together with my son Merlijn I also developed the Sensory Profile.
