How The Brain Balance Program Works With Asperger’s Syndrome (now considered a part of ASD)
Often described as high-functioning autism*, Asperger syndrome is a pervasive developmental disorder on the autism spectrum. Asperger Syndrome is characterized by social impairments, communication difficulties, and motor coordination issues as well as displaying signs of restrictive and repetitive behaviors. Children with Asperger Syndrome may find reading social cues challenging and may not understand subtleties, such as humor, sarcasm, or irony. Although these children may struggle with many of the social and sensory issues of those that are higher on the autism spector, they tend to have average to above-average IQs and well-developed vocabularies. The Autism Society cites that one of the major differences between Asperger syndrome and other autism spectrum disorders is there is no speech delay in Asperger’s.
Our approach to addressing Asperger syndrome focuses on combining individualized sensory motor and academic activities that address right-brain connectivity and associated behavioral issues. Whether your child is struggling at home or in the classroom, The Brain Balance program can help to address the challenges of Asperger syndromes through our holistic approach. By identifying the areas where we find the greatest need for improvement, our program can help children improve their developmental functions. Uncovering the root cause of your child’s challenges is what makes The Brain Balance Program effective in helping children with high-functioning autism and Asperger syndrome. We invite you to read through our stories from Brain Balance parents to learn more about how our program is positively impacting the lives of children. *It is important to speak directly with your Doctor concerning the presence or confirmation of any diagnosis of a spectrum disorder.
