Has your child recently been diagnosed with autism or another developmental disorder? Are you struggling with the diagnosis and feeling frustrated with the lack of immediate assistance?
Autism Spectrum Disorder, Pervasive Development Disorder and other neurodevelopment disorders are reaching epidemic proportions. Today 1/68 children are diagnosed with ASD alone. In Canada over the past 10 years, the prevalence has increased by over 100%.
Since ASD is defined as a spectrum, no two children present the same! To varying degrees, these children may experience difficulty with social interaction and communication and may demonstrate restricted and repetitive behaviors. Research has shown that there are genetic and environmental factors that are linked to ASD. Since our genetics are influenced by our environment, naturopathic medicine plays a major role in supporting a healthy internal environment for children with ASD. Balance within the body is key!
At KIH, the ASD Care Program is uniquely designed to meet your child’s individual needs using functional medicine and European drainage methods. Starting with the basics (sleep and digestion), this program will progress, following a scientifically sound sequence to improve immune function, nutrient balance and cognitive and behavioral traits.
The importance of early intervention....
While this protocol can be used on individuals of any age, it is important to note that early intervention is key. Since the positive effects are more pronounced in young children, it is recommended that you start your child on his/her program as soon as possible.
These therapies can also efficaciously be used to help individuals with Dyslexia, Apraxia and ADHD.
