It has been well documented that there is now an epidemic increase in the neurological syndromes collectively known as “Autistic Spectrum Disorders”. Since the early 1970’s, there has been a remarkable increase of more than 15% in the number of children diagnosed with these disorders. These children can appear clumsy, uncoordinated, slow, unfocused, distractable, anxious, hyperactive and generally have difficulty with fine motor skills and social interactions.
What is an Autistic Spectrum Disorder?
The term “Autistic Spectrum Disorder” is generally used by physicians. These syndromes include ADD/ADHD, Autism, LD, PDD, Dyslexia, Asperger’s, CAPD and static encephalopathy.
Despite the numerous named syndromes in this category, these disorders are all related to an abnormal function of two primary areas of the brain:
(1) The processor (Reticular Activating System)
(2) The emotional center (Limbic System)
These two areas in essence control the speed of all cognitive and reflex functions and are responsible for behavior, mood and activity level.
