Autism Spectrum Disorder - Treatment You Can Do at Home or in Our Office

The autism spectrum describes a range of conditions classified as neurodevelopmental disorders that occur when brain development or function is disrupted or faulty. Autism is considered the most severe form of ASD, and other ASD disorders include Asperger syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder and pervasive developmental disorder (PDD-NOS). Characterized by social deficits and communication difficulties, stereotyped or repetitive behaviors and interests, and in some cases cognitive delays, ASD sufferers struggle daily with processing and behavioral challenges.

Autism can be accompanied by a variety of symptoms and challenges, including:

  • Language
  • Speech Communication
  • Social and behavioral challenges
  • Sensory related issues (auditory, visual, SPD)
  • Poor eye contact
  • Many of the same things seen in ADHD
  • Need for sameness/rigidity
  • Limited interests and or interest in unusual items/topics
  • Anxiety

Scientists can’t agree what causes autism, though genetics and environment are thought to be contributing factors. Studies have observed irregularities in brain function in individuals with autism, suggesting effective autism treatment may lie in the brain’s neuroplasticity, or ability to change.
