LOS ANGELES NEUROFEEDBACK CENTER

LANC & AUTISM TREATMENT

When seeking Autism treatment, we have to consider the potential source.

Autism is thought to arise from neural connectivity issues in the brain.  Improving neural connectivity is the cornerstone of LANC’s Direct Neurofeedback.

Research has shown that in people with Autism, there are areas of deficient connectivity and other areas with excessively high connectivity. As Science Daily puts it: “…some areas of the brain are chatting excessively with themselves, while failing to communicate normally with other relevant regions.”

LANC’s Direct Neurofeedback can both correct neural pathways in deficient areas and allow the brain to reduce and rearrange neural pathways with excessively high connectivity.  Since many of the symptoms of Autism are similar to symptoms of ADHD, Anxiety, and Depression, LANC’s Direct Neurofeedback has similar effects in addressing these Autism symptoms.

HOW LANC PROVIDES AUTISM HELP

Research has shown that Direct Neurofeedback can have a profound impact on reducing the symptoms of Autism, reducing the occurrence of specific detrimental Autism behaviors, and reducing the duration of these behaviors and Autism regression. Direct Neurofeedback’s effects on persons with Autism are long-lasting.

One study “indicates maintenance of improvement of executive functions and social behavior after 12 months in comparison with the immediate outcomes.”

Improvement can be seen in people all across the Autism spectrum disorder, from those whose Autism is high functioning or those who have Asperger’s Syndrome to individuals who are profoundly affected with multiple symptoms and Autism disability.

LANC Autism Help Treatment

LANC’s Direct Neurofeedback addresses Autism in kids and adults with Autism symptoms.

"The experience I had with the Los Angeles Neurofeedback Center exceeded my expectations. Very destructive Autism symptoms were reduced. I appreciated the well-rounded ability of the NeuroCoach."

– T. GERRY, LOS ANGELES CLIENT

WHAT TO EXPECT IN A DNFB SESSION FOR AUTISM

One of the greatest benefits of LANC Direct Neurofeedback compared to other Autism treatment, is that LANC’s sessions require almost no involvement on the part of the client.

LANC sessions are done in a quiet, relaxing environment that may help minimize anxiety and triggered responses in those with Autism. Sessions are typically 30 minutes, but can be shorter if necessary for the client’s comfort. For clients who have mobility issues, LANC can schedule in-home sessions.

While most of LANC’s clients report a degree of immediate improvement in the area of concern, usually during or immediately after a session, improvements in clients with Autism may not be observable until the client is placed in situations where their Autism symptoms arise.

Between 60 and 80 percent of caregivers for those with Autism report observable reductions, or even absence of symptoms within the first few weeks of sessions.

Ordinarily, a LANC NeuroCoach relies on feedback from the client to adjust the effects as the session progresses and assess the effects over time. For a client with Autism, it may be necessary for the practitioner to rely on the observations of the client’s caregiver to assess the effects.  Also, clients with Autism may require more than the typical 25 sessions LANC recommends for most people.

If your loved one has an Autism diagnosis, book your first session at a special rate! The initial intake session costs only $89 at our West LA office and $149 at our South Bay office, and is the first step towards Autism help.

TRADITIONAL AUTISM TREATMENT OPTIONS

There is no “cure” yet for Autism Spectrum Disorder. The only commonly accepted options for Autism range from Behavioral Management and Cognitive Behavioral therapy to Nutritional and Animal-Assisted therapy.

The effects of these types of Autism therapy can vary widely between individuals.  It may take a long time to discover the specific Autism therapy that works best for the unique individual’s Autism behaviors.

Medication is not a common option of treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder as there is only one medication FDA approved for treating the symptoms of Autism. However, since some Autism characteristics are similar to ADHD, Anxiety, and Depression, medications prescribed for those disorders are sometimes prescribed for persons with Autism. Those medications come with their own disadvantages and side effects – see our pages on ADHD, Anxiety, and Depression for more information.

Autism Treatment Options

BRIEF AUTISM OVERVIEW

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is classified as a Developmental Disorder because symptoms generally manifest in the first 2 years of life.
Milder forms of Autism may go undiagnosed until adulthood. The Center for Disease Control states that the occurrence of Autism is 2 to 6 per 1,000.
The DSM-5 classifies Autism as a Spectrum Disorder because there is a wide variation in types & severity of Autism symptoms and signs between people.
Symptoms of Autism range from profound, such as explosive disruptions, and restricted or repetitive behavior, to subtle, such as difficulty maintaining appropriate eye contact and facial expressions.

While some risk factors have been identified, the true cause of Autism remains unknown. Autism is considered a lifelong disorder, but there are means to render the symptoms less pronounced and, for symptoms which have specific “triggers,” less likely to arise. LANC’s Direct Neurofeedback is one of these means.
