How many viral videos have had an impact on you?
I caught one a couple months ago that made me stop, rewind, and watch again…It was a video of a teenage autistic boy with physically disabilities opting to leave his wheelchair behind and go for a walk. His name is Brandon and the video taken by his trainer garnered over 6.8 millions views on LinkedIn and 150 million combined views on other forms of social media and through news outlets. His trainer, Daniel Stein is the man behind Special Strong. This wasn’t an overnight miracle- it was years of building up to the moment- a well worth investment his parents made- Buy Brandon a new wheelchair or invest in therapy. Special Strong has been instrumental in helping hundreds of clients who live with a variety of conditions which include autism, apspergers, down syndrome, ADD, spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, victims of stroke and more.
There are techniques and cues Daniel has learned over the years that help connect with his clients. Touch, hand placement, dialogue during activities which allow his clients to feel at ease and in control. Based out of Texas, Daniel also created certify strong, helping other trainers all over the world to get certified in helping train people with special needs…
