Autism is a complex disorder that involves deficits in many domains of functioning. Medications may help specific symptoms, and a variety of therapies have proved useful; however, there remains a great need for more treatment options. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) has been used to treat Autism with notable benefits.
For those who are interested in pursuing additional treatment options to alleviate the burden of Autism, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) may be part of the solution.
The following is how author John Elder Robison describes his experience with TMS:
“I can sum up what’s it’s done for me very succinctly. TMS has been the lever that allowed me to roll the boulder of autistic social disability out of my path. Today, thanks to Alvaro and his team, my world is brighter, more colorful, and more alive than anything I knew before. And best of all, I am fully engaged. I’m no longer an outsider. I have gone from feeling like a social outcast to feeling like I can talk to anyone, most any time. It’s a magical thing.”
*At this time, TMS is not FDA-aproved for the treatment of Autism, which would be considered an off-label application.
