Autism (autism spectrum disorder) is a condition associated with brain development that impacts perceptions of and socialization with others, often causing issues with communication and interactions.
With autism spectrum disorder, spectrum refers to the wide range of severity and symptoms.
Autism usually begins in early childhood and causes problems functioning in society, such as in school, at work, and at social functions.
Some of the symptoms of autism include:
Autism can cause employment problems, social isolation, victimization and being bullied, an inability to live independently, and other issues.
Autism can be treated in various different ways. Linda offers neurofeedback therapy to improve autism symptoms.
With neurofeedback, real-time displays of brain activity (typically electroencephalography EEG) are used to teach self-regulation of brain function. You or your child’s brain waves are electrically monitored through electrodes on the scalp.
The brain waves are reflected on the computer screen as you or your child plays a video game. When the brain nears a more relaxed state, there’s a reward and a positive response on the screen. This helps to train the brain to better regulate mood and reduce symptoms of autism.
Linda works with you or your child to decrease sensitivities, and enhance focus, control, transitions, and speech. Intervention for autism can be helpful at any age. To help with autism, discover neurofeedback and click or call to schedule online.
