As many of you know, April is Autism Awareness/Acceptance Month. Many of the families who use The Listening Program and inTime have one or more family members on the autism spectrum. We’ve created a dedicated page on our website where you can easily access research, success stories and more information about finding help for autism.
Generation Rescue grant recipient finds success with The Listening Program
From our partner, Generation Rescue:
Our grant recipient Milena described in detail to her mom everything she did today. Before, she had trouble communicating. “I wanted to cry, I didn’t know what to think,” her mom said. “Since we began taking supplements and using the The Listening Program from Advanced Brain Technologies, she has been performing so well in school. Her teachers are amazed at her progress! She has been content, happy, communicative – I can’t even put to words the improvement! Now, she’s even passionate about drawing! I cannot wait to see what unfolds as we continue this path to healing and recovery. We love you guys!”
Dancing may be the best exercise to keep our brains healthy
As we grow older we suffer a decline in mental and physical fitness, which can be made worse by conditions like Alzheimer’s disease. A new study, published in the open-access journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, shows that older people who routinely partake in physical exercise can reverse the signs of aging in the brain, and dancing has the most profound effect.
In autism the brain appears to begin with too many cells and connections
The amygdala, a brain region that governs emotions, may contain an unusually high number of neurons in young children with autism. Each of these neurons may also have an excess of connections to other cells. As these children grow up, however, some amygdala neurons, and many of their connections, seem to disappear.
Peers partner with children with autism to help engage them in play during recess
A small pilot study showed that when children with autism are mentored by peers during recess, it can help everyone overcome the awkwardness of not being sure of the best way to engage with each other.
Bioengineer Ted Boyden and his team at MIT want to know how the tiny molecules in the brain generate thoughts, emotions, and more. They are searching for a different way to do that research. He illustrates their concept using a baby diaper.
The Listening Program® was born from over 75 years of family history in brain training. Learn how TLP came to be in this informative video with ABT Founder and CEO Alex Doman and EEG Info’s Kurt Othmer.
