What we can improve

Autism is a neuro-developmental disorder that often appears before the age of three years. Although no treatment exists to date, several research groups are interested in better understanding the neurological mechanisms of pathology and thanks to quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG), there has been great progress over the past decade.

What happens at the brain level:

Many clinicians have used EEG-based interventions as a therapeutic strategy. In this, Neurofeedback has shown promising results in terms of improving quality of life for people with autism as well as those around them.

What we train WITH Neurofeedback

According to a controlled study by Jarusiewicz in 20021, children who have followed a Neurofeedback training have seen the following improvements:

Improvement of sociability
Improvement in language and communication
Improvement of health
Improvement in cognitive and sensory arousal
results that can be observed
  • Reduction of symptoms
  • Improvement of sociability
  • Increased cognitive awakening
  • Language improvement
  • Better communication

Another study conducted by Pinda in 20122 shows significant improvements, following 30 30-minute sessions in Neurofeedback. Parents reported a significant reduction in symptoms as measured by the Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC), in addition to a 40% improvement in cognitive and sensory awareness.

Coben and Padlolsky also conducted a study in 20073 to measure the effect of 20 sessions of Neurofeedback with a protocol aimed at decreasing hyperconnectivity between certain regions of the brain. The parents then noticed an 89% improvement in symptoms and a 40% reduction in the ATEC score.

Of course, you should not see Neurofeedback as a treatment for people with autism, but the results obtained to improve their condition are certainly encouraging.
