A Powerful Multi-Modal Treatment for Autism

autism treatment

Raising an Autistic child is a uniquely challenging job requiring a tremendous amount of time and effort. Parents constantly looking for any and all ways they can help their child control his repetitive behaviours or improve his self-care, social and communication skills.

Scientists now believe that Autism and the other Autistic Spectrum Disorders are caused by poor connectivity within and between major brain structures. Genetic and other factors come into play but ultimately autistic behaviours are outcomes of how their brains are ‘wired’.

The most common interventions – behavioural therapies like Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), special education, and medication – each help somewhat but none of them get at the core cause of the problem: Connectivity in the brain.

This is where Maxi Mind comes in.

Improving Connectivity in the Brain

The Maxi Mind Brain Training SystemTM is based on decades of research into Neuroplasticity, the discovery that specialized activities can stimulate the brain to grow and develop at any time in life. Maxi Mind activities provide a whole-brain workout that strengthens connections within and between the major brain structures that are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders – the Cerebral Cortex, Amygdala, Hippocampus, Basal Ganglia, Corpus Collosum, Brain Stem and Cerebellum. This results in more effective and efficient signaling and that makes for better physical coordination, emotional regulation, communication and relationships.

How Our ASD Brain Training Courses Work

The primary element in Maxi Mind Learning’s toolkit for addressing Autism Spectrum Disorders is the renowned Integrated Listening System (iLs), used by over 5,000 doctors, therapists and educators in 50 countries.

Maxi Mind’s neuroeducational specialists are all trained and certified on the iLs method. In fact, we are the largest organization using the technique in Canada and have successfully treated hundreds of clients.

The method involves coaching clients on the performance of sensory integration exercises together with specific auditory stimulation while listening to specially engineered classical music delivered through bone conduction headphones.

Depending on the child, we also use other sensory integration exercises and computerized biofeedback games that teach mental focus on a task as well as social skills.

The Evidence Speaks for Itself

A third-party survey of 144 therapists who had treated over 1,300 Autistic children with iLs found that the method was highly effective considering 24 different measures of physical, behavioural, emotional, social, language and academic functioning. For these and dozens of other results including case studies, media coverage, medical expert endorsement see this link. You too can typically expect improved sensory processing, motor skills and balance, better behaviour, energy level and mood, and improved language, academic and social skills. And all this through music and exercise with a personal coach.
