The Neuroconnection
The brain has no knowledge until connections are made between neurons. All that we know, all that we are, comes from the way our neurons are connected.

Autism Spectrum Disorders

Autism Spectrum Disorders encompasses five distinct categories:

  • Autism
  • PDD-NOS
  • Childhood Disintegrative Disorder
  • Rett’s Disorder
  • Asperger’s Syndrome

In many cases, communication and social interaction are limited. The person may display repetitive behavior and obsessive thinking.  They may also be unable to recognize or respond appropriately to emotional or nonverbal cues and may be prone to outbursts or tantrums. Studies show that an autistic brain is not able to communicate with itself effectively due to problems resulting from abnormally developed neuroconnections. 

Therapies such as medication, vitamin regimens or restricted diet can produce results, but may be reversed when stopped.

Advantages of Connectivity Guided Neurofeedback:

  • Non-invasive
  • No adverse side effects
  • Proven effective in a shorter period of time than other treatment modalities
  • Outcomes are maintained and in some cases even improved upon, after training stops

Results with Connectivity Guided Neurofeedback:

Connectivity Guided Neurofeedback training can be very effective with autistic spectrum disorders, particularly connectivity-guided neurofeedback, which trains the way the brain communicates with itself. The results that The Neuroconnection has achieved using connectivity-guided neurofeedback include:

  • Ability to transition without disruption
  • Increased focus
  • Improvement in social skills and social pragmatics
  • Increased calmness and decreased anxiety
  • Improved verbal communication or expressive language
  • Improved receptive language
  • Fewer repetitive behaviors
  • Improved processing speed

In a large study conducted by Dr. Robert Coben, in 2009, all 85 children in the experimental group showed a decrease in autistic symptoms from 20% to 100%. The average overall improvement for this group was a 57% decrease in autistic symptoms. Follow up of these subjects after one year showed that these improvements held and some subjects made additional cognitive and social gains.
