How do we manage Autism Spectrum Disorder?
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a behavioural abnormality with its roots situated in the defective neuropsychological system and disorder in the digestive and metabolic system. In case of any early signs that you are noticing with your children, make sure that you consult an expert group of professionals so that they can give them a quick diagnosis and care so that they have more options for treatment. There is no one fixed strategy to manage individuals who are suffering from this because they have varying talents and difficulties.
We at Jeevaniyam address this issue in the most scientific way by assessing & monitoring the child’s current physical and mental state. Our main goal is to improve food habits, diet, exercise, play and sleep in treating the central nervous system disorder. We use an interdisciplinary approach by combining different Ayurvedic therapies with alternative therapies to achieve good results on a case-to-case basis. Modern medical science & technology provides us with the tools to identify, assess and monitor the conditions, the rich tradition of Indian Ayurveda holds the promise of regenerating and rejuvenating the Pranas to mitigate the negative fall-out to a large extent. In Ayurveda, we follow the treatment procedures and therapies based on a unique protocol called AGASTYA PROTOCOL, which is a research work done at Ayurveda college Kottakkal under the ministry of Ayush. It is an integrated method that combines the most effective and needed therapies adopted worldwide, along with Ayurveda medicines for a complete approach towards a better life for the ASD child. The integrated therapies that are commonly used are:
- Speech and Language Pathology
- Psychology and Behavioural Management
- Educational Rehabilitation
- Occupation Therapy
- Sensory Integration
- Music Therapy
- Clinical Yoga
We also give adequate training to the parents or guardians in how to handle these kinds of situations. As a parent, they should understand that the time taken for the improvement differs from child to child depending on the severity. Jeevaniyam Ayurveda Hospital & Research Centre is committed to making your special child future-ready & giving you back the joy of parenting, without falling prey to feelings of frustration, self-rejection and hopelessness very common in such a situation.
