April is Autism Awareness Month! Autism affects about 1 in 68 children, yet autism can be exceptionally difficult to classify as each case is very unique to the patient. Asperger syndrome, once known as a specific subtype of autism, is now classified as part of the single autism diagnosis by the recently published 2013 DSM-5 diagnostic manual.
As a parent, all you want is to see your child succeed in their life. If your child suffers from a brain-based issue or disorder, daily functioning becomes more difficult which can burden families. Brain-based issues can include everything from anxiety and depression to learning disabilities to behavioral issues. Parents often struggle to find the right course of treatment to ensure that their child can grow up to be a well-adjusted adult and experience academic, career, and personal success. Success in the formative years of their youth is crucial. If your child is struggling to succeed, neurofeedback may be the treatment of choice, and here’s why.
The BAUD (Bio Acoustical Utilization Device) is a small device that utilizes sound to enhance brain function by effectively stimulating neuroplasticity which produces lasting change to the brain and eliminates symptoms of both neurological and psychological issues. During a BAUD treatment session, the patient listens to specially designed sound frequencies that allow the brain to create new habits of brainwave activity, alleviating symptoms of anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, chronic pain, addiction, cravings, and more. Even some physical symptoms may be effectively eliminated because they actually initiate in the brain even though they may be felt in the body.
“Neurofeedback was the most important thing I did.”
