Has anyone ever done this? I haven't done any therapies with my aspie for several years, but feel like we need to step back into that arena.
This therapy looks like something he would be very interested in, as well, and getting them there is half the battle, as they say.

Something like this:

I'm curious, too, Shonda since this was an idea mentioned for my dd with ADD.

I had it done with my 21 year old special needs son. I saw some good results. You really need to watch though, one time he was more violent after the treatment so they changed it a bit the next time. I would say it's worth a try.

We used it for my FHA son and sad daughter, i didn't see a huge difference, but each chld is different. They liked the sessions. My friends son who has OCD was helped, not sure each detail, but I do remember his mom saying it was helpful for his concentration.

My son goes once a week. We have not experienced a HUGE change but enough of a change for us to drive an hour and a half and pay a $38 dollar co-pay during a season in our life when money is a big issue.
If you want more details just let me know.
Good luck finding something that works!
