The diagnosis of your child with autism can be a scary thought. You may be wondering where to turn for help and when you should be alarmed. If you’re a concerned parent, read on for the warning signs, what to expect, and how Palm Beach Health Center is here to assist your child.
Autism is a behavioral disorder that begins showing signs within 12-18 months after birth. The clinical classification of those conditions labels it a neuro-developmental disorder that can affect verbal and gestured communication.
Ring the alarm bells if you spot these tendencies:
Trouble making or holding eye contact
Dismissive of playthings
Lacking smiling or emotions
Healthy infants begin babbling and attempting words after a year or so. If your child makes little to no effort, it may be a sign of autism. We highly encourage swift action at the first instance of one of these symptoms.
Over years of study and research, we now know several factors that can trigger the development of autism. Leading factors include:
Vaccines and medications
Think of autism as a sliding scale as each case fits somewhere in the spectrum. Since cases vary drastically, where your child falls dictates the treatment plan.
While each patient reacts differently to treatments, some patients respond better to neurofeedback than others from pharmaceuticals elsewhere. Furthermore, BrainCore can potentially reduce autism symptoms drastically, including:
Repetitive movements or speech
Inability to follow commands
You may be wondering how neurofeedback can miraculously stop or mitigate these symptoms. The answer lies in the computer software capable of analyzing brains to diagnose where the dysfunction lies.
Here are the steps of neurofeedback therapy:
A comprehensive brain scan
We’ll formulate a recovery plan using the BrainCore computer
Begin therapy by exposing patients to new signals
Assess progress after several appointments
Exposing the patient to new signals is not a painful nor complicated process. Upon detection of brainwave misfiring, subjecting the brain to our signals will teach it to respond appropriately. In turn, this “rewires” the brain, allowing for easier speaking, learning and improves communicative and social skills.
We understand the mental stress dealing with a cognitive disorder can be. At Palm Beach Health Center, we make it our goal to assist in any way we can. Fill out the new patient forms experience a holistic approach to your child’s health.Schedule Now
