A Dedicated Approach to Supporting Adolescents with Autism

Welcome to 14 Step, where we provide a dedicated online space specially crafted for families with children aged 10 to 17 on the autism spectrum. Our mission is to offer easily accessible, natural solutions—focusing on mindfulness and breathwork rather than medication—to address the unique challenges of autism.

Practice, Share, and Grow Together

At 14 Step, families can practice mindfulness, share experiences, and grow together, finding peace and stability through what we like to call “the medicine of breathing.” Our digital platform offers the flexibility to find peace anytime and anywhere, providing an essential solution to moments of overwhelm.

Tools for Today’s Needs

The app is equipped with tools that help users observe and embrace their thoughts and emotions, release tension, and stay present. Regular practice helps our users find a more grounded and centered energy.

Engaging Content for Adolescents

Our content, tailored for teens and pre-teens, focuses on simple breathing techniques that meet their evolving emotional and cognitive needs. These strategies aid in improving focus, reducing anxiety, and managing the social stresses of school and peer interactions, all while being engaging and fun.

Understanding and Embracing Authenticity

Many individuals on the autism spectrum adopt masking behaviors to conform to social norms, which can lead to significant emotional fatigue. Our platform encourages self-acceptance and the confidence to express one’s true self, reducing the need for masking by promoting an understanding and appreciation of unique behaviors.

Stimming and Self-Regulation Through Breathing

Stimming behaviors are common among autistic individuals and serve as coping mechanisms. Our platform integrates breathing exercises that provide a calming effect, reduce sensory overload, and help maintain focus, offering a discreet way to manage stress and self-soothe.

Building Emotional Resilience

Our comprehensive mindfulness practices are designed to help adolescents on the autism spectrum cultivate a heightened awareness of their thoughts and feelings, encouraging a balanced response to emotions and reducing anxiety, particularly in unpredictable or demanding situations.

Enhancing Cognitive Abilities

The daily exercises on 14 Step also enhance cognitive function, improving concentration and attention span, which is particularly beneficial for autistic adolescents during schoolwork and exams.

Creating Consistency and Routine

Autistic adolescents often thrive on consistency and routine, which helps manage daily unpredictability. Our platform provides a structured schedule of mindfulness and breathing practices that serve as a calming anchor.

Support for the Whole Family

Supporting an autistic adolescent is a journey for the whole family. At 14 Step, we offer resources for parents and siblings to help create an environment that supports the growth and development of their autistic family member while caring for their own emotional and psychological needs.

Join Us at 14 Step

Our goal is to empower adolescents with autism to navigate their critical developmental years with greater ease and confidence. It’s not just about managing autism; it’s about harnessing unique perspectives and skills, enabling them to lead fulfilling and independent lives.
