Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with nonverbal communication, repetitive behaviors, social skills, and speech. It’s a condition that sadly affects 1 in 59 children and cannot be cured but can be helped with treatment. Neuropsychologist and certified EMDR therapist, Dr. Amy Serin, perfectly explains ASD and the science behind it here.
Many consider EMDR equipment to be for the treatment of trauma alone, but it can, in fact, be used for such a condition as well. EMDR pulsers offer a passive, non-invasive solution that may be more powerful than other methods in preventing nervous system hyperarousal in real-time. They can be used in the classroom, at home, or during therapy sessions to attempt to reduce sensory hyperarousal for improved outcomes in those with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Can’t believe it? Check out this case study featuring Jacob Holma, an 18-year-old boy with ASD, which shows increased focus and an increase in the experience of calm using tapper tools. One user’s Mom says that bilateral stimulation devices have helped her son “re-regulate himself to the point where he can last without a meltdown for about 2 weeks.” He has minor meltdowns where he is stimming and jumping but falls way short from what he was before and is not aggressive (K. Sinnett, TouchPoints tapper tools customer in Bainbridge Island, Washington). There’s even a study on children with ASD and developmental delays that shows EMDR pulsers reduced approximately 72% of disruptive and self-harming behaviors.
