Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. It may range from mild to severe conditions. It is difficult to diagnose in the initial period of life upto 2 years.
Parents start noticing changes such as awkward social interactions, non-responsive behaviour along with losing that little amount of speech. Autism appears to have its roots in very early brain development.
ASD can be associated with intellectual disability, difficulties in motor coordination, attention and physical health issues such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances. Some persons with ASD excel in visual skills, music, math and art.
What causes Autism?
Most cases of autism appear to be caused by a combination of autism risk genes and environmental factors influencing early brain development.

Autism doesn’t have to be viewed as a disability or disorder. Autistic people are genetically and neurologically distinct, but thinking and feeling people with strengths and challenges outside of average and divergent intuitive learning and communication styles.
Autism can be addressed using a combination of therapies that include behaviour, speech-language and energy healing. Autism is unique to each child or adult with treatments and assistance having to be customised to the individual following a thorough evaluation of their strengths and challenges. Additionally social skills & energy healing provide cross support to their well-being. Parents also partner with therapists/energy healers and train to work with their children at home. Ideally, parents, teachers, therapists and energy healers will all work together to integrate their approaches across the child’s daily life.
Behavioural therapies are the foundation of treatment for most children on the autism spectrum. Energy healing along with the therapy can help maintain harmony, health, and systemic balance in the brain and nervous system. Energy healing has no side effects. It is an effective therapy which can help your child deal with challenges of sleeplessness, relaxation, anxiety, stress & tight muscles. Additionally, it empowers the child to be able to self sooth, gain confidence and self-esteem. Energy healing looks beyond physical symptoms to manipulate the subtle energetic meridians in the body to clear blocks, repair and rebalance. Any imbalance is the body’s way of communicating is that there is an energetic block; our body’s energy is unable to move harmoniously. Energy healing facilitates repairing the body to its optimal level of balance so that it can heal itself. We are all designed to self-heal.
Some adults with autism don’t want treatment, per se. They may embrace their differences, yet need certain therapies and healings, tailored to their personal challenges.
Take, for example, the extreme sensitivities to certain sounds, smells or lights that are common among people with autism may need a behaviour therapy and healing session to ease these sensory issues. Many adults on the spectrum struggle with communication and social challenges that can interfere with obtaining or maintaining employment, establishing and fostering relationships and achieving independence and quality of life. This can result in social isolation, anxiety, depression and problems with emotional control. Apart from working along and supporting them with whatever they are challenged in, it is also important to sensitise society to the uniqueness of people with autism.
It is a misconception that autism is a disease which needs curing. It is time to embrace this uniqueness
