How We Help
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) include the diagnoses of Autism, Asperger’s Disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder. Symptoms generally become noticeable by 2 or 3 years of age. These symptoms may include inability to perceive sights and sounds adequately, resistance to change in daily routines, poor motor skills, repetitive behaviors or movements, hyper-focusing, and loud outbursts.
There is no cure for autism, so most treatment is focused around improving the individuals quality of life and helping them function to the best of their ability.
Neurofeedback is a direct approach that targets the brainwave patterns. Using a qEEG, we can record and measure brainwaves. Then we use the feedback to help the brain figure out where it needs to self-regulate. Developed in neurophysiological labs in scientific institutes throughout the USA, this method has been working successfully for over 30 years.
Studies show that individuals with ASD have excessive connectivity in some areas of the brain and deficient connectivity in others. Because Neurofeedback works by directly targeting the brain and helping it to recognize dysregulation, symptoms can be reduced as a result.
As brain-training goes on, parents report that their children are calmer, better at managing emotions, and not as easily overwhelmed.
Neurofeedback is a long-term solution that actually teaches the brain to optimize itself. Especially when paired with a comprehensive biopsychosocial approach, Neurofeedback can greatly improve the quality of life.
How Does Neurofeedback Help Autism?
Using biofeedback technology, Neurofeedback helps to encourage the brain to produce healthier, more organized brainwaves. By pinpointing the areas of the brain that are dysregulated, symptoms can become lessened.
What Are the Noted Improvements for Autism?
Individuals with ASD who have participated in Neurofeedback training have noticed results such as initiation of touch and contact, clearer speech patterns, reduced emotional outbursts, better response to teacher and parental instruction, better imaginative thought, improved social skills and decreased hyperactivity.
