OxyCure ® clinic provides comprehensive treatment for children with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and cerebral palsy (CP), and other developmental delays (such as learning difficulties and delayed speech).
OxyCure ® is the first clinic in the Middle East that is dedicated for the treatment of autism and other autistic spectrum disorders. At OxyCure®, we believe that autism is treatable. Our belief is supported by several studies that were conducted by DAN doctors. These studies indicate that autism is the result of an environmental insult that leads to abnormalities in the body's biochemistry, metabolic pathways, and immune system. DAN doctors have been treating children with autism and other autistic spectrum disorders for many years in the United States and Europe. They apply the "DAN treatment protocol" in order to treat autism and other ASDs. Before starting treatment, an array of lab testing needs to be completed in order to find out the underlying reasons of ASD, and the pathways that have been affected. After that, a treatment plan is developed for the child. The DAN treatment protocol has shown promising results. A large number of children recover, while the rest show significant improvement.
Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD’s)
ASD’s are a group of illnesses that can cause impairment in cognitive, emotional, language, and social skills.
Disorders that are classified under the spectrum include Asperger disease, pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and autism.
A good starting point for parents to determine the treatment option that they want to choose for their child would be the parent ratings of biomedical interventions, which presents the responses of over 25,000 parents of autistic children, and that shows the effectiveness of the various interventions on their own child.
It is important to emphasize that these interventions should not be implemented without the advice of experienced clinicians. The clinical team that oversees treatment should include DAN-trained physician and pharmacologist, in addition to a good nutritionist.
Decisions about treatment plan (combination of interventions) should be made by the treating clinician and the parents. One important aspect of treatment is hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Mild HBOT is a safe & effective way to get more oxygen into the brain, where it is mostly needed. In addition to medical treatment, it is advised that the child should be enrolled in a rehabilitation program that includes speech therapy, occupational therapy, and one-on-one educational program (such as ABA or "applied behavioral analysis").
However, some people with autism have an accompanying learning disability, learning difficulty or mental health problem. Autism is a spectrum condition. This means that while all people with autism share certain difficulties, the condition affects them differently.
Perhaps the best known form of autism is Asperger syndrome. People with Asperger syndrome are often of average or above-average intelligence. They have fewer problems with speech than people with other types of autism, but may find it difficult to understand and process language.
While some people with autism live independent lives, others may need a lifetime of specialist support. Autism can have a profound and sometimes devastating effect on individuals and families. A positive difference to the person who is diagnosed and their loved ones.
The Defeat Autism Now (DAN) protocol for the treatment of autism and other autistic spectrum disorders (ASD's) has been used for over 10 years. The protocol is based on assessing the child's autistic features in addition to level of heavy metals and biochemistry. These tests provide the medical team with the necessary clues to develop an individualized treatment plan that includes the right set of supplements and medications. In addition, some children may be required to do a SPECT image of the brain to identify areas of hypertension(lack of oxygen).However, this image is not recommended for all children with autism or other ASD's.The DAN protocol is typically implemented in two phases. In phase I, a core set of vitamins and supplements are given to the patient. And the child is recommended to start a certain diet that can help alleviate some of the autistic features. Again, not all children with autism need to be on the diet. In phase II, the child undergoes hyperbaric oxygen therapy which helps treat hypo-perfusion (lack of oxygen) in the brain. In addition, other supplements are recommended based on the results of the tests outlined above.
It is extremely important to mention that the DAN treatment protocol is a comprehensive approach that consists of several treatment modalities, and that is has to be implemented correctly in order for the child to get the best results. For example, hyperbaric oxygen alone would NOT yield the expected results unless it was combined with the diet and the appropriate supplements and treatments. So, for somebody to say that they can treat autism only by using hyperbaric oxygen is misleading. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is one of several elements that need to be combined with other treatment modalities for it to be effective and give the expected results. Likewise, for somebody to believe that the diet alone can treat autism is also not true.
Neurofeedback is direct training of brain function, by which the brain learns to function more efficiently. It is a gradual learning process that works by observing the brain in action from moment to moment, and showing that information to the person who is being treated. And we reward the brain for changing its own activity to more appropriate patterns. It applies to any aspect of brain function that we can measure.Neurofeedback is basically a computer-based therapy that trains the brain to regulate itself "self-regulation”.Neurofeedback is a completely non-invasive and a very safe procedure. The therapist attacheselectrodes/sensors to the scalp/head, which are held in place by a water-soluble gel. These electrodes read the brainwave activity and carry it onto an EEG device, which will transmit this information onto a computer screen. No input (electricity or impulses) goes into the brain; the machine simply reads the electrical energy coming from your brain.
Neurofeedback is a new treatment modality that can assist in the treatment of several illnesses and disorders.It addresses problems of brain dis-regulation, including:
• Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD’s).
• Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).
• Learning Difficulties.
• Seizure Disorders & Epilepsy.
• Sleep Disorders.
• Brain Injuries.
Auditory Integration Therapy
Auditory integration training (AIT) was developed by "Guy Berard” during the 1960s in France to help people with auditory processing problems. Since then, other practitioners have developed similar training methods with names like the Tomatis Method, Aerobics, and fast forward.
BerardAIT was originally developed to normalize both (i) hearing and (ii) the ways in which the brain processes auditory information. For instance, a person tests as hypersensitive to sounds of 1,000 and 2,000 Hertz frequencies, while perception of all other frequencies falls within the normal range. This individual becomes over-stimulated, disoriented or agitated when he/she hears sounds at 1,000 and 2,000 Hertz .Therefore, BerardAIT works to normalize the hearing response across all frequencies within the normal hearing range.
How is auditory integration training (AIT) Done?
I. Some children undergo a "hearing test”, others don’t.
II. The treatment program consists of 20 half-hour sessions during a 10- to 12-day period, with two sessions conducted daily.
III. Treatment sessions consist of listening to music that has been computer-modified to remove frequencies to which the individual demonstrates hypersensitivities, and to reduce the predictability of the auditory patterns. A special device (an audiokinetron) is used to modify the music for the treatment sessions.
IV. Audiograms are repeated midway and at the end of the training sessions, to document "progress" and to determine whether additional sessions are needed.
Auditory Integration Therapy (AIT) can benefit children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders in several ways, including:
• Improve attention.
• Improve auditory processing.
• Decrease irritability.
• Improve expressive language and auditory comprehension.
• Improve general mood.
• Reduce stereotypical movements.
• Reduce "obsessive compulsive” behavior.
• Improve cognitive skills.
• Improve learning abilities.
• Reduce aggressive behavior.
• Improve sleeping pattern.
