Auditory Integration Training (Overview)

Auditory integration training (AIT) in children with autism spectrum disorders is based upon the idea that repeated exposure to altered sound via headphones changes central auditory processing, improving language and behavior. This technique is considered an alternative or investigational therapy, with some studies some benefit and others showing no benefit.

How is auditory processing disorder different from other hearing loss?

How is auditory processing disorder different from other hearing loss?

No.: Schizophrenia is an actual disorder of the brain in which there are abnormalities in levels of neurotransmitters in different circuits of the brain. People with schizophrenia do not channel spirits or become possessed by entities although they may believe so as part of a delusional system. Psychic mediumship is a practice some people believe in but it is not integrated with schizophrenia. ...Read more

How are motor sensory and perceptual skills developed?

How are motor sensory and perceptual skills developed?

By exploration.: Children develop their motor sensory and perceptual skills by exploring their environment. When they are very young they explore a great deal with their mouth and this is why we see them m outhing objects. As they learn to get around by sitting up and rolling they can see more of their environment. As they crawl, walk, and climb they discover all that they can about their world. ...Read more

Will social skills training help someone on the autism spectrum?

Will social skills training help someone on the autism spectrum?

Evidence-based: Treatment of autism is intensive, repetitive behavioral & educational therapy at the child's developmental age. When a young child is ready, "peer therapy" is effective, adult-supervised play with a neurotypical peer in multiple settings. Group therapy at age 6 & > is repetitive, rote training in basic skills. Dan & other unproven therapies are reviewed in "pediatrics" nov 2012, on aap.Org or app. ...Read more

Do antipsychotics affect cognitive functions like memory processing speed word recollection executive functions? What's the best?

Do antipsychotics affect cognitive functions like memory processing speed word recollection executive functions? What's the best?

Cognitive effects: The newer antipsychotics (second-generation antipsychotics) theoretically are supposed to assist with improving cognitive impairments in various mental health conditions, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. However, it is possible that a slowing of processes can occur with such medications. Efficacy and tolerability depend on the medication, side effect profile, and patient response. ...Read more

I have moderate hearing loss w/bi lat. hearing aides. Which is better: learning sign language w/no hearing aides, or hearing aides w/no sign language?

I have moderate hearing loss w/bi lat. hearing aides. Which is better: learning sign language w/no hearing aides, or hearing aides w/no sign language?

My vote is for...: Hearing aids with no sign language is better than sign language with no hearing aids. With hearing aids, one can hear broadcasts, such as music or voice, and one can hear what other people say (because the vast majority of people don't know how to express themselves using sign language). Also, with hearing aids, one can hear sounds from machines (like cars) and from animals (such as barking). ...Read more

Are binaural beats helpful in making new neural pathway connections in brain ?

Are binaural beats helpful in making new neural pathway connections in brain ?

No: Binaural beats have been studied for decades by neurophysiologists for clues to how the brain processes sensory input. Studies I've seen suggest that they MAY elicit transient alterations in some aspects of mood or cognition. I've seen NOTHING to substantiate the ludicrous claims made by the binaural-beat lunatic fringe on YouTube etc., whose enthusiasm far outstrips their understanding. ...Read more

Is sensory processing disorder somewhere on the autism spectrum?

With all due respect: To dr. Rankin, sensory processing disorder is not recognized as a stand-alone diagnosis by medical coding systems, the american academy of pediatrics or the dsm-v. Difficulties processing visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory (smell), gustatory (taste) & proprioceptive-kinesthetic ( relation of body parts to each other & to space) are found in a wide variety of neuridevelopmental disorders. ...Read more

Could neurofeedback help with aspergers. specifically motor skills and hand eye coordination?

Could neurofeedback help with aspergers. specifically motor skills and hand eye coordination?

No proven benefit: There are no randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled studies to support the claims of those who provide NFB to older kids & teens with Autistic Spectrum Disorder Level 1 & average or above IQ's. EEG Biofeedback has been used since the 70's. When kids with ASD/ADHD relax & focus on 2-dimensional figures on a screen, a preferred activity, they do well. It doesn't generalize outside the lab. ...Read more
