Condition: Autism, PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder), and Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD)

How does the Advanced Biofeedback center assess autism, pervasive development disorder, and other autistic spectrum disorders?

From a cognitive-behavioral perspective, any type of biofeedback training for a child diagnosed with autism, PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder), RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder), Asperger's Disorder, or other autistic spectrum disorders can be a valuable adjunct to a comprehensive clinical and educational program to help your child with sensory defensiveness, mood instability, behavioral problems, and communication.

Most children diagnosed with autism or PDD are capable of undergoing a TOVA (Tests of Variables of Attention, Visual and Auditory subtests), a computerized test that assesses attention, impulsivity, reaction time, and variability of responses. Subsequent TOVAs may be administered to "track" progress in these areas.

Arrangements may be made for additional intellectual, achievement, personality, attention, and development testing as needed.
