We have been bringing our son for Scalp Acupuncture treatments since September of 2006. He was diagnosed with Autism/Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) at the age of four. He has low social awareness that is typical of those with autism, and also has difficulty focusing on learning tasks in school. He is fortunate enough to have an aide who helps him with his classroom work and goes to speech and socialization therapy. He also takes Ritalin to help him focus at school. With all these benefits, he has managed to keep up in school, and has proven that he can learn.
Nevertheless, since he has been receiving Scalp Acupuncture, he has made noticeable improvements in his concentration at school, has been showing higher levels of social awareness and self-expression, and has been working more independently when taking tests and doing homework. Emotionally speaking, he is handling adversity much better.
Scalp Acupuncture has helped my father who suffered a stroke, and it is proving to be beneficial for my autistic son.
