What is Autism Spectrum Disorder?

It is called the Autistic Spectrum because there really is a range of issues with the core issues reflected in social-interaction difficulties, communication challenges and a tendency to engage in repetitive behaviors.  

It results from a complex combination of genetic and environmental factors. Autism is on the rise with current estimates of 1 in 45 children have Autism.

Autism runs along a lower spectrum for some children and at a higher end for others. No matter where an individual falls, there issues impact their daily functioning and socialization is especially challenging for them.

How can Neurofeedback help?

Individuals with Autism can display both underactivity and overactivity in their brain wave functioning.  Both under responsive behaviors (e.g., trouble with transitioning and executive functioning) and over responsive behaviors can results (e.g., anxiety, hypervigilance, obsessive thinking, etc). Neurofeedback reduces these overactive brain waves to help retrain the brain and therefore reduce symptoms.

How can Biofeedback help?

For those with Autism, their entire nervous system is hypersensitive and prone to sensory issues as a result. Sensory processing issues can create anxiety and stress for the brain and body. Biofeedback is designed to help the Central Nervous System (CNS) to calm down so one can self-regulate the information that one is receiving and better able to manage sensory stimuli.

How can counseling help?

No matter how patient a parent is, children with special needs can be challenging. Parents need direct tools and coaching in how to use those tools.

Getting behavioral support and parent coaching can go a long way in supporting the needs of a child, parent, or family.
