Successful Autism treatment begins in the Brain

Even though Autism’s causes are still unclear, its symptoms are fairly well-known. The clinical team at Unique Mind Care has made considerable headway towards understanding the important mechanisms in the brain that are creating the symptoms in the Autistic client. This is where we begin.

At Unique Mind Care we monitor all research outcomes associated with Autism treatment. With this awareness and understanding of research, we have developed an advanced brain-body Autism treatment program that can lead to significant improvements in functioning. We believe it is important to look at the entire system that will ultimately support the clinical outcomes associated with our brain-based treatment programs.

The fundamental premise of our program is simple: the brain is not an isolated organ; therefore it should be tested and treated as a system, especially in the Autistic patient.

When all aspects of the brain-body system are addressed properly during treatment, identifiable improvements are made in brain function leading to greater personal independence and improved quality of life.

Testing and Assessment:

  • Quantitative EEG (qEEG) “Brain Mapping”
