Autism Therapy

Compounded Medication Offers A Vast Amount Of Services For Special Needs, Especially Autism Spectrum Disorder

According to the National Institute of Health, autism spectrum disorder has been coined as a brain disorder that affects a person’s ability to communicate and form relationships with others, hindering his/her response to the world. In dealing with autism’s biomedical roots, it is imperative to identify and treat underlying issues to enhance the patient’s quality of life. Presently, scientists are unsure of the specific causes. However inconclusive the science may be, the research has pointed in the direction of nutritional supplementation to carry out and improve biochemical processes.

Autism and related disorders often need to supplement with Vitamins, Antioxidants, and Amino Acids. These simple molecules help to supply the body with raw materials that facilitate its need to carry out methylation and sulfation. These two processes are the body’s natural means of creating energy for the cells and ridding itself of toxins.

A program called the Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication Handicapped Children, TEACCH, was developed as a statewide program in North Carolina. It uses picture schedules and other visual cues that help the child work independently and organize and structure their environment.

Though TEACCH tries to improve a child's adaptation and skills, it also accepts the problems associated with autism spectrum disorders. Unlike ABA programs, TEACCH programs do not expect children to achieve typical development with treatment.
