Use Neurofeedback for Autism Treatment to Help with Autism Symptoms and Improve Social Skills

People who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder show a range of challenges with social skills, motor skills, speech and nonverbal communication, outbursts, the inability to perceive sights and sounds adequate and repetitive behaviours. The terminology “spectrum” is used to describe the wide variety of challenges faced by people with Autism.

Thorough studies have shown that neurofeedback as an autism treatment in patients has shown success.

What are the causes of Autism?

Autism is a developmental disorder characterized by difficulties with social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behaviour. Parents often notice signs during the first three years of the their child’s life. These signs often develop gradually, though some children with autism experience worsening in their communication and social skills after  reaching developmental milestones at a normal pace.

Autism is associated with a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Risk factors during pregnancy include certain infections, such as rubella, toxins including valproic acid, alcohol, pesticides, lead, and air pollution, fetal growth restriction, and autoimmune diseases. Controversies surround other proposed environmental causes; for example, the vaccine hypothesis, which has been disproven. Autism affects information processing in the brain and how nerve cells and their synapses connect and organizes; how this occurs is not well understood.

What Are The Usual Autism Treatments?

The most common treatments for Autism Symptoms include behaviour therapy, speach therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy and nutritional therapy. Through these treatments, researchers have seen decreased emotional outbursts, and improved attention and learning behaviours.
