Autism Spectrum Disorders
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) – which includes Autism, Asperger’s Disorder and Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) – is a developmental disability that affects how a person communicates, behaves or interacts with others.
The symptoms of ASD, which range from very mild to very severe, can make daily life challenging for affected individuals and their families.
While there’s no single known cause for ASD, Neurofeedback therapy (also called Neuromodulation therapy) has been demonstrated by numerous studies to make significant improvements in alleviating the most prominent symptoms.
Effectively, at our practice we use qEEG to create a map of the patient’s brain and identify where the brain is facing challenges in processing information and self-regulating.
After we complete the brain map, we develop a regime of Neurofeedback therapy sessions to address the unique and specific needs of the patient.
Neurofeedback therapy sessions are all natural and pain-free, detecting the root of the problem within the brain so long-term functional changes can be made – without any negative side effects.
For individuals with ASD, Neurofeedback therapy has been shown to alleviate the following symptoms:
- Challenges with social skills
- Difficulty following directions
- Speech issues
- Intolerance to change
- Emotional outbursts
- Repeated/ritualistic behaviors
