Child Asperger Syndrome and The Brain Balance Program
Asperger syndrome (now considered a part of ASD) is a pervasive developmental disorder on the autism spectrum that is often described as high-functioning autism.* Children with Asperger syndrome can display with difficulty with social interactions, exhibit a restricted range of interests and repetitive behaviors, and struggle with underdeveloped motor skills, but tend to have average to above-average IQs and well-developed vocabularies. According to the Autism Society, one of the major differences between Asperger syndrome and other autism spectrum disorders is there is no speech delay in Asperger’s, however, these children may struggle with reading social cues, and not understand subtleties, such as irony, sarcasm or humor.
The Brain Balance Program offers a drug-free, integrated approach to treating Asperger syndrome that helps children lead a more successful academic and personal life. Our program can help children with high-functioning autism and Asperger syndrome effectively work on improving developmental functions based on the areas where we find the greatest need. When it comes to treating Asperger syndrome, Brain Balance focuses on combining individualized sensory-motor and academic activities that address right-brain connectivity and associated behavioral issues. Take some time to read through our stories to see first-hand what parents have to say about their child’s experience in our program. *It is important to speak directly with your Doctor concerning the presence or confirmation of any diagnosis of a spectrum disorder.
