Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a lifelong developmental condition and is diagnosed in 1 in 70 Australians. Individuals on the spectrum experience a wide range of different presentations and degree of severity around social communication, anxiety, repetitive behaviours, understanding and sensitivity.
Given the implication of poor communication in neural activity in the brain of Autistic individuals, MeRT℠ begins by mapping your brain activity and identifying areas that may not be communicating effectively. With personalised protocols and an understanding that every individual is different, parts of the brain not communicating effectively are specifically nurtured to strengthen their functionality and recovery.
By synchronizing the brain or neural activity communication, individuals with Autism can experience improvement in social cues, awareness, attention, eye contact, use of language and ability to cope in new situations*.
