Autism One: A Conversation of Hope
Neurological Reorganization for Brain Injury: The relationship of structure and function with therapeutic applications, with Sargent Goodchild, Jr.
Every child with autism is unique in ways that dictate which therapies will facilitate healing and when to employ them. Factors include those that are chemical/nutritional and those that are physical. There is a correlation between the functional movements we progress through as children and the level of health we have as adults. The idea of neural plasticity has gained tremendous ground in the last decade. The adult brain continues to be modified structurally and functionally by experience. If the adult brain can be modified by experience does this stand true for the brain of a child with autism, too? Yes! In this show, Sargent Goodchild, Jr., founder and executive director of Active Healing, Inc., a 501(c)(3), will talk about neural plasticity, remediation of the sensory-motor systems, and his own recovery.
