Statistics indicate that 1:36 in children will be diagnosed Autistic. While there are no blood test, brain scan, or any other objective test that can diagnose autism, children are observed for problems with social communication, interactions, restricted interests, or repetitive behaviors which lead to a diagnosis of autism.
What is Autism?
Autism is a bio-neurological developmental disability that generally appears before the age of 3 years old. Bio-neurological encompasses what goes into the child’s body, impacting the neurological development during critical developmental windows. Some things to consider in your child’s blueprint are their medical history, your state of health at conception, their birth, interventions, vaccines, toxic exposure, and so much more. Your child’s bio-neurological blueprint will impact how their brain and immune system will function.
How Does Autism Impact the Brain?
Autism impacts the normal development of the brain in the areas of social interaction, communication skills, and cognitive function. Children diagnosed Autistic typically have difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions, and leisure or play activities.
The social brain network is made up of multiple regions throughout the brain that together support complex social interactions. Brain mapping has identified keys areas that are dysregulated. The brain receives disorganized information from the thalamus, the limbic system, visual, auditory, and somatosensory regions of the brain. These areas of the brain are impacted by your child’s unique developmental experience.
The CMB Difference:
At CMB, we have a 3-tier approach to evaluate your child’s unique developmental story.
- Brain – A comprehensive approach through QEEG will identify how your child’s brain is wired from the bottom up;
- Chemistry – Evaluate your child’s internal biology through functional labs;
- Mechanical – A thorough assessment of your child’s developmental milestone acquisition.
Brain dysregulation requires a comprehensive approach to look at how your child’s brain is wired from the bottom up, their internal biology through functional labs, and their developmental acquisition. There is a unique inner working at the right-temporo-parietal junction in the brain. In this region the thalamus, the limbic system, visual, auditory, and somatosensory function are incorporated. Neurofeedback provides an avenue to help shift brain function to a stable state.
At CMB we stay current. We look at the current research to identify where new ideas are forging through. The immune premise is considered to be a major factor contributing to the origin of how a brain that was once meeting all of their milestones, developing as expected, took a hard turn into a state of regression and loss.
