Brady and Adin: The Healing Power of Having a Best Friend

www.judsoncenter.org [cached]

Sarah Bretz, an autism specialist at the Judson Center, is the person responsible for introducing the two young children. Bretz was working with Brady in therapy for about a year when she decided to look for a "typical" child for him to interact with in a dyad.

A dyad is the smallest group. "It means two people," Bretz said.
...
"I really don't have to do much," Bretz said. "It's pretty much all Adin. Brady is a different kid when he plays with him."
Bretz makes a chart with list of games for the boys to play.
...
"As a therapist, I try to make it fun for both boys," Bretz said. "I don't want one of them to feel like they are coming here as a favor or that this is work."
If the boys complete all of their tasks and follow directions, they win a piece of candy.
"It helps keep them motivated," Bretz said.
...
When Bretz approached her with the dyad idea, Weiner was happy to volunteer her son.
