We Take the Guesswork Out of Psychiatry

Autism, also known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), can involve a number of symptoms, including developmental delays, challenges with communication and social skills, behavioral issues, and learning disabilities—all ranging from mild to severe.

The prevalence of autism is on the rise, with an estimated 1 in 59 children currently affected by the condition, according to the CDC. And boys are 4 times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with ASD. Signs of autism typically appear between the ages of 2 to 3, but they can occur earlier in some children.

What many people don’t realize is that children with autism also struggle with ADD/ADHD as well as

mental health issues like depression and anxiety. And having autism increases the risk for schizophrenia and gut health problems. If you notice any possible signs of autism or related conditions in your child, that’s when you need to seek help. Getting the right help is key because autism isn’t a simple or single disorder. One size does NOT fit all. Treatment that helps one child may not help everybody, and it could even make your child worse!

Getting the Right Treatment Depends on the Right Diagnosis

At Amen Clinics, we use leading-edge brain imaging technology called SPECT that reveals there is not just one brain problem associated with autism. We have performed brain scans on more than 1,000 children (and adults) with ASD. We have found that in people with autism:

  • The front part of the brain often
    works too hard.
  • The back part of the brain often
    doesn’t work hard enough.
  • The right side of the brain is often
    low in activity.

Knowing your child’s brain patterns is so important because it helps target treatment more effectively. With the world’s largest database of functional brain scans — 150,000 and growing — from patients from all 50 states and 120 countries, our physicians are able to more accurately identify brain patterns associated with autism and related conditions than any other healthcare professionals.

Since 1989, Amen Clinics has helped over 1,000 people minimize symptoms of autism with targeted solutions that are proven to produce higher than average success rates.

We believe in taking a comprehensive brain-body approach to treatment that involves the least toxic, most effective strategies. This may include utilizing natural supplements, nutrition, exercise, helpful forms of therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, neurofeedback, and medication (when necessary)—all personalized based on your child’s specific brain patterns and autism symptoms.

Early intervention can improve underlying brain development and leads to more positive outcomes throughout a child’s life. But it’s never too late to start treatment. Even adults with ASD can decrease symptoms to improve quality of life.
