Parents from all over the world have helped their children diagnosed with autism move along the path to wellness. Using the programs developed by The Institutes, children diagnosed with autism have been able to significantly improve their ability to learn, to communicate, to solve problems and, in some cases, to perform at age level or above.
“Autism” or “autistic” or “autism spectrum disorders (ASD)” are words to describe children who exhibit a wide variety of symptoms, including problems with communication and social interaction.
Children who exhibit these symptoms usually have problems in the cortical and midbrain areas of the brain.
Autism is a label, not a diagnosis. A proper diagnosis describes where the problem exists in the brain, the degree of the problem and the extent of the problem in the brain.
