I haven’t heard of this before. The neurologists my daughter sees have never brought this up.
I looked at the wiki site.
Color me skeptical having been through dozens of “fads” “sure fire treatments” etc. Autism is a spectrum, and as most folks would say “if you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism.” In other words, there is a pretty huge range between folks on the autism spectrum, and it’s pretty difficult to translate what works for one person on the spectrum to another person. ABA therapy seems to be the one that shows consistently positive results.
For example, “horse therapy” is touted as a miracle cure. There are definitely kids that respond to horses, horse back riding, etc. For some kids on the spectrum, the reward of a horse ride and/or interaction, breaks through and is a meaningful reward that positively affects their behavior. Most kids on the spectrum do the usual horse squeeeeeeeeeeee but it’s not a meaningful motivator, and some kids on the spectrum could care less. The takeaway is that horse therapy might be useful for your child, but no guarantee and you need to try and see if it might be effective.
