We’ve seen students with autism, Asperger's and related autism spectrum disorders make great strides through brain training. Brain training can make a life-changing difference for some students on the autism spectrum who don't respond to other interventions.
Brain-training exercises target focus, logic and reasoning, processing speed, and the ability to adapt and transition. Parents often report improvements in the following areas:
- Increased awareness of the environment
- Increased ability to interact with others
- Increased persistence with tasks
- Improved academic performance
- Fewer meltdowns or tantrums
Speech language services can also be crucial for autism and related disorders. Following an assessment, we will recommend whether your child or teen would benefit most from brain training, speech language services, or a combination. For more on these services and Dr. Vicki Parker, a speech language pathologist, please see Communication & Social Skills.
