The Autism Academy for Education and Development has consistently demonstrated

excellence in the ability for both administrators and educational staff to connect with each and

every student in the academy on a personal, first-name basis. It has been addressed recently,

however, that the work relationships between coworkers across different classrooms, offices and

buildings. In order to address this issue with the intent to educate and mediate barriers between

professional peers, the lead contact regarding professional development has allowed me the

chance to use the first ten minutes of each regularly scheduled all-staff meeting every month to

educate and illustrate the importance and relevancy of holistic health elements that relate to

spiritual, physical, emotional, intellectual, social and nutritional well-being.

At the beginning of each meeting, I will introduce myself and the topic of the month to

explain its importance and how every employee can benefit from incorporating these healthier

living standards into their life. After introductions, the audience will become participants by

breaking into pairs or groups and take part in an activity directly related to the holistic health

topic at-hand. All exercises will be tied to methods that employees can implement practically

into their daily work schedules. Activities, such as stretches, peer-to-peer book

clubs/recommendations, and understanding cultural diversity in their workplace can all help to

reduce stress and anxiety that can occur within the workplace. By reducing stress in these six

different elements of life, employees can achieve more work satisfaction, increase their chances

of long-term retention, and naturally contribute to a positive, productive and enriching work
