The label of autism can strike fear in the heart of any parent. One of the most confusing aspects of autism is how the level of functional ability can vary to the extremes. This wide array of the effects has caused people to refer to this as a “spectrum disorder” or refer the individual as being on the Autism Spectrum.
If you are anything like I was when I found out my child was developmentally delayed and had a low IQ, you just want to know how to help your autistic child function better. That was my prayer, “how do I help Jenee’ function better, to unlock her fullest potential and not just accept a label as a “life sentence” of the possibilities for her future?” That prayer brought me to The NeuroDevelopmental Approach. This approach looks for the root causes of the symptoms of any label. It equips the parents with a plan of activities to address those root causes at home. The result is that the symptoms diminish and sometime fully disappear.
Autism is a multi-faceted diagnosis that included such symptoms as processing delays and sensory integration dysfunction, as well as metabolic (chemistry of the body) root causes and more. This podcast will give an overview of these issues and direct you to resources and information to both inspire and equip you to create positive change for the individual in your life that may be on the autism spectrum. The good news is that it is never too late to help to change a person’s functional ability.
