Autistic Spectrum Therapy

Is your child suffering from Autism Spectrum? Does he or she avoid eye contact, not respond to being held, engage in repetitive behaviors, or appear to show arrested development?

The Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) is an advanced form of biofeedback that gently stimulates the brain in a way that can provide therapeutic relief to children on the Autistic Spectrum—without medications.

How does LENS Neurofeedback provide relief?

A child on the Autistic Spectrum might show more pronounced behavioral and neurological variations compared with one with PPD or ADHD. His or her brain emits electromagnetic impulses of a particular pattern. For fractions of a second, the LENS Neurofeedback system gently mirrors back these impulses – but in such a way that it can correct patterns typical of Autism Spectrum.

Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder seem locked away in their own world. They range from high-functioning Asberger’s Syndrome to severely-impaired, neuro- developmentally, impacting cognitive – linguistic, emotional, behavioral and social functioning, and their ability to meet developmental milestones.

Autism Spectrum children are often oriented to things over people,sensitive to changes around them, to stimulation,  exhibit stereotypical behaviors, such as repetitive rocking or head banging.  Asberger’s Syndrome children might appear hypervigilant, disinterested in social contact,  missing social cues, not acknowledging others, tactilely defensive.

Suggested causes include dietary factors, toxic exposure and genetic factors.

LENS Neurofeedback can be particularly effective with neurologically -based disorders in children, in helping to speed up of maturation of the child’s nervous system, through freeing up dysfunctional brainwave patterns and self-regulation.

All of these disorders, including Autism Spectrum, ADHD , PPD, Learning Disorder, can be addressed through  LENS Neurofeedback.   In Autistic Spectrum therapy, the LENS helps with smoothing, balancing, bringing flexibility to the nervous system,  more adaptability to the child’s environment, improved behavior, social relations and academic progress.

LENS Neurofeedback seems to work in Autism Spectrum therapy, even though the clinician might be dealing with the severely affected who cannot sit still in the chair, and who keep their eyes open for the seconds of per-site therapy. Therapy with the LENS is passive, with no demands on the patient, which facilitates the process.

Is LENS Neurofeedback experimental?

Not at all! Over 75.000 children and adults have been treated since Dr Len Ochs invented the Low Energy Neurofeedback System in 1994, with an individually customized approach.

Over one hundred research papers on the effectiveness of neurofeedback and LENS have been published. The National Institute of Health sponsored a study of LENS for the treatment of TBI , and the government of the Netherlands conducted a large double-blind study of successful treatment of adult ADHD with LENS.

The LENS can not only facilitate pharmaceutical treatment, but also be a complimentary and alternative therapeutic approach for children on the Autistic Spectrum. Autistic Spectrum therapy with the LENS is highly customized according to individual patterns and sensibilities. it can be complimentary to sensory integration therapy, and to medical intervention, with the goal of the physician allowing a tapering off of medication over time, with demonstrated gains in mobilization and regulation of the central nervous system through LENS therapy.
