About Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism Spec­trum Disorder is frequently misdi­ag­nosed as ADD/ADHD

The most common symp­toms involve social inep­ti­tude and diffi­culty with empathy, but symp­toms vary widely and the disorder mani­fests uniquely in each indi­vidual. It is not uncommon for symp­toms of Autism to be mistaken for indi­ca­tors of ADD/ADHD, leading to frequent misdi­ag­nosis of the disorder.

Other symp­toms include delayed motor skill devel­op­ment, all-absorbing interest in limited topics, inability to read social cues or under­stand humor, and gram­mat­i­cally correct speech that has an unusual rhythm or into­na­tion. The primary symp­toms of ASD may lead to social isola­tion, depres­sion, and/or anxiety, espe­cially if left untreated as a child matures into adoles­cence.

Treatment

Neuro­feedback is the core of what we do at neuroAgility in conjunc­tion with psychotherapy.

Although Autism is a life­long neuro­bi­o­log­ical condi­tion whose causes are not fully under­stood, its incep­tion appears to be linked to phys­ical changes in the brain. While their is no cure for the disorder, symp­toms may be effec­tively managed, espe­cially if treat­ment is under­taken while a child’s brain is still devel­oping. In addi­tion, certain char­ac­ter­is­tics, such as atten­tion to detail and a proclivity for struc­ture and truth, may be appro­pri­ated as bene­fits with the proper support.

Research shows neurotherapy to be an effec­tive, safe, non-inva­sive way to manage the symp­toms of Aspergers/ASD. neuroAgility offers state of the art brain training that is respectful and non-stig­ma­tizing. Our program helps those on the Autism Spec­trum to utilize and train the brain to build on existing strengths and gain better control of their lives.
