Curative Programs

High-functioning Autism

“High-functioning autism” is not an official medical term or diagnosis. This is an informal term used when talking about people with autism spectrum disorders who can talk, read, write, and manage basic life skills such as eating and changing clothes. You can live independently.

Like all people on the autism spectrum, high-functioning individuals have difficulty social interaction and communication. They don’t naturally read social cues and may find it difficult to make friends. They can get very stressed out by social situations and switch off. They don’t make eye contact or small talk much.

People on the highly functional spectrum can also be very fond of routine and order. You may have repetitive and restrictive habits that look strange to others.

Sensory Integration Therapy

Sensory integration therapy is usually an occupational therapist-led program. For example, an occupational therapist may design and implement a customized sensory experience program for a child with autism.

Sensory integration therapy is intended for people who have difficulty processing or understanding sensory input. This may include children with autism.

Sensory integration therapy is used to allow children to use all senses such as touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing together. This treatment is claimed to improve challenging and repetitive behaviors. These behaviors may be related to the difficulty of processing sensory information.

Sensory integration therapy begins with an occupational therapist evaluating the child. The therapist then plans and implements a program that includes activities that stimulate the child’s sensory responses, especially those related to balance and body movements. This includes swinging, hopping, mountaineering and more.

Sensory integration therapy is designed as part of a wide range of programs, including communication therapy, behavioral therapy, and educational therapy. 

Occupational Therapy for Autism

Occupational Therapy (OT) is a division of health care that helps people of all ages with physical, sensory, or cognitive problems. OT helps regain independence in every aspect of life.

Occupational therapists support barriers that affect a person’s emotional, social, and physical needs. They use daily activities, exercise, and other treatments to do this. Occupational therapy for Autism is a common treatment option for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). OT also helps autistic children to play, improve their academic performance and supports them in their daily activities.

  • It also boosts their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment. With OT, children can:
  • Develops fine motor skills to grasp and release toys and develops fine handwriting or computer skills.
  • Improve eye-hand coordination so you can play and perform necessary school skills such as: B. Hit the ball and copy from the blackboard.
  • Acquire basic life skills such as bathing, dressing, brushing teeth, and self-feeding.
  • Learn positive behavior and social skills by practicing how to deal with frustration and anger.
  • Get special equipment to build independence. This includes wheelchairs, splints, bathing equipment, bandages and communication aids. 

Attention Span

Attention span is the time spent focusing on a task before it distracts. Distraction occurs when attention is directed to another activity or sensation out of control. Attention training is intended to be part of education, especially in a way that students are trained to focus on long-term observation or discussion topics and develop listening and analytical skills in the process. ..

Child development experts generally say that the reasonable attention you can expect from a child is 2-3 minutes a year. This is the time that a typical child can focus on a particular task.

Average attention spans work out like this:

2 years old: four to six minutes

4 years old: eight to 12 minutes

6 years old: 12 to 18 minutes

8 years old: 16 to 24 minutes

10 years old: 20 to 30 minutes

12 years old: 24 to 36 minutes

14 years old: 28 to 42 minutes 16 years old: 32 to 48 minutes

Behavioral Therapy

Behavior therapy is a general term for treatments used to treat mental illness. 

This form of treatment is aimed at identifying and altering potentially self-defeating or unhealthy behavior. It is based on the idea that all behaviors are learned and can be changed. The focus of treatment is often on current problems and how to change them.

Behavior therapy can benefit people with a variety of disabilities.

People most commonly seek behavioral therapy to treat:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic disorder
  • Excessive phobia disorder such as intermittent explosive disorder
  • Also useful in treating the following conditions and disorders: :
  • Eating disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Phobia including social phobia
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Self-injurious behavior such as disconnection
  • Substance use disorder

This type of treatment can benefit both adults and children. 

Care of a Patient

Learn to communicate with them: Communication can be difficult for many people with autism. Some autistic children are even non-verbal, so you need to find creative ways to communicate with them. Many children with autism do well with visual communication.

Be patient: Patience is essential when caring for someone with autism. Their social and communication skills are often underdeveloped and they can be difficult to reach.

Make a Schedule and Stick to It: Children with autism greatly benefit from a structured schedule. Going off schedule can throw you off track. Children with autism tend to grow up on a consistent schedule.

Stick to setting bedtimes and mealtimes. Please notify your child in advance of any schedule changes.

Playtime Schedule: Between school and therapy, children with autism can easily become overwhelmed. We encourage you to schedule time to relax and play. It can be a little difficult to understand what your autistic child likes to do for fun, as he probably won’t relax like other children. I can’t.

Play Therapy

Play therapy is a form of psychotherapy that can help children with emotional and mental problems.

Children often use play to express themselves and navigate the world. And play therapy takes advantage of this. Play therapy is mainly used for children. However, it can also be used by adults. Usually used for children between the ages of 3 and 12.

The main goal of play therapy is to enable children who have difficulty expressing themselves or their emotions to express themselves through play.

There are two main forms of play therapy used by play therapists. They usually give specific instructions and supervise as the child passes through them.

Non-directive play therapy: Non-directive play therapy uses an uncontrolled environment.

Play therapists guide people through play therapy so that their children feel most comfortable in a free and safe environment and can express themselves. Play therapists take advantage of play activities that children may enjoy, from drawing to dancing to board games. From time to time, play therapists will ask other family members, parents and guardians to participate in play activities.

Fine Motor Skills Activities

Fine motor skills involve the development of small muscles in the hand. We create fine-grained athletic activities for early learners to improve their dexterity and prepare their hands for larger tasks such as writing, zipping, and tying shoes.

How do we teach children to write?

Before asking your child to practice writing, you must first cut, squeeze, spray, grab, peel off stickers, draw lines and curves. We do this to help strengthen those muscles before asking the child to write a letter or number.

Having healthy hands takes the pressure off of getting a letter right and gives kids time to build the confidence they need. After years of practicing fine motor skills, young learners will start running as soon as we give them time.

Three, four and five year olds (and me) urge us to slow down and allow fine motor skills development through play rather than pencil and paper.

Scissor Practice  

How to help children hold scissors:

Draw a smiley face on the thumbnail. This will encourage your child to keep his or her thumbs up and visible while cutting. The proper laying of hands does not happen overnight.

Pencil grip  

Before asking children to write numbers or letters, you first need to strengthen the muscles of your small hands. This can be achieved by incorporating these small exercise activities into daily life. You can improve your pen hold with risk-free invitations to draw lines and curves through activities.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders in children. It is usually first diagnosed during childhood and often persists into adulthood. Children with ADHD may have difficulty paying attention, controlling impulsive behavior (they may act without thinking about the outcome), or become overly active.

It is normal for children to have difficulty concentrating and behaving at one time or another. However, children with ADHD do not thrive simply because of these behaviors. Symptoms are persistent, can be severe, and make it difficult at school, at home, or with friends.

A child with ADHD might:

  • Dreaming of a lot
  • Forgetting or losing a lot
  • Twisting or fidgeting
  • Talking too much
  • Making careless mistakes or taking unnecessary risks
  • Difficulty resisting temptation
  • Having difficulty taking turns
  • Difficulty getting along with others

Treatment for Autism

There are many ways to minimize symptoms and maximize your ability. People with ASD are most likely to use all their skills and abilities when they receive appropriate treatment and intervention.  The most effective treatments and interventions often vary from person to person. However, most people with ASD respond best to highly structured and specialized programs. 1 In some cases, treatment can significantly reduce symptoms and help people with autism in their daily lives. Jewel Children With Autism & Rehabilitation Center is one of the best autism centre in Dubai  offers therapies for developmental disabilities including ASD, ADHD, LD, ID, Down syndrome, etc. Department of Psychology provides services such as Behavior Therapy, Behavior Management, Parent Management Training, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Attention Enhancement Training, Social Skill Training, Counselling Services, Remedial Training, etc…

Behavioral management therapy

The behavioral approach focuses on changing behavior by understanding what happens before and after the behavior. Behavioral approaches have the most evidence for treating ASD symptoms. They are accepted among educators and medical professionals and are used in many schools and therapeutic clinics. A notable behavioral therapy for people with ASD is called Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA therapy for autism encourages desirable behaviors and discourages undesirable behaviors to improve a variety of skills. Progress is tracked and measured.

Developmental Approaches

Developmental approaches focus on improving specific developmental skills, such as language skills and physical fitness, or a wide range of interrelated developmental skills. Developmental approaches are often combined with behavioral approaches.

The most common developmental therapies for people with ASD are speech therapy and communication therapy. Speech therapy helps improve language and language comprehension and use. Some people with ASD communicate verbally. Others may communicate using signs, gestures, images, or electronic communication devices.

Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy teaches skills that help people live as independently as possible. Skills include changing clothes, eating, bathing, and socializing. Occupational therapy may also include:

Sensory integration therapy improves the response to restrictive or overwhelming sensory input.

Physical therapy can help you improve your physical skills, including: B. Fine movements of the fingers or large movements of the trunk and body.

Educational AApproachesEducational therapy takes place in the classroom. One type of pedagogical approach is the Treatment and Education for Autistic and Related Children with Communication Disorders (TEACCH) approach. TEACCH is based on the idea that people with autism thrive on coherence and visual learning. Teachers provide opportunities to customize classroom structures to improve academic and other outcomes. For example, you can write down or draw a daily routine and place it in a clearly visible place. A boundary can be drawn around the learning station. Verbal instructions can be supplemented with visual instructions or physical demonstrations.

Social-Relational Approaches

Socially related treatments focus on improving social skills and building emotional bonds. Some social relationship approaches involve parental or fellow mentors.

A developmental, individual-based relational model (also known as “ground time”) encourages parents and therapists to expand their communication opportunities in the interests of the individual.

Pharmacological Approaches

There is no cure for the core symptoms of ASD. Some medications treat co-occurring symptoms that can help people with ASD work better. For example, dosing helps manage high energy levels, poor concentration, or self-harm such as hitting the head or biting by hand. The drug helps manage conditions such as seizures, sleep disorders, stomach and other gastrointestinal problems, as well as concomitant mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression.

Psychological Approaches

Psychological approaches help people with ASD deal with anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a psychological approach that focuses on learning the relationships between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. At CBT, therapists and people work together to identify goals, change people’s perceptions of the situation, and change their response to the situation.

Complementary and Alternative Treatments

Some individuals and parents use treatments that do not fit into any other category. These treatments are known as complementary and alternative treatments. Complementary and alternative therapies are often used to complement more traditional approaches. They may include special diets, herbal supplements, chiropractic care, animal remedies, art remedies, mindfulness, or relaxation therapies. Individuals and families should always consult their doctor before starting complementary or alternative treatments.

Social skills

Social skills are the ability to facilitate interaction and communication with others and to create, communicate, and modify social rules and relationships in linguistic and nonverbal ways. The process of acquiring these skills is called socialization. Lack of such skills can lead to social awkwardness.

Interpersonal skills are actions used to effectively interact with others. Interpersonal skills are related to the categories of domination and domination. Obedience, love vs hatred, affiliation vs attack, control vs autonomy. Positive interpersonal skills include persuasiveness, active listening, delegation, and management. A discipline focused on the study of social functioning, social psychology examines how interpersonal skills are learned through social changes in attitudes, thinking, and behavior. 

Autism Spectrum

Autism spectrum disorders are brain developmental disorders that affect how one recognizes and connects with others, causing social interaction and communication problems. This disorder also includes limited and repetitive behavior patterns. The term “spectrum” for autism spectrum disorders refers to a variety of symptoms and severity. Autism Spectrum Disorders begin in early childhood and eventually cause functional problems in society, such as society, school, and workplace. Children often show symptoms of autism within the first year of life. A few children develop normally in the first year, then develop symptoms of autism and appear to undergo a stage of regression between the ages of 18 and 24 month. ASD is a complex neuro developmental disorder and there is no known cure for it. However, early intervention and best treatment for autism can improve the symptoms and quality of life of individuals with ASD. 

Effective Communication Skills

Effective communication is the process of exchanging ideas, thoughts, opinions, knowledge, and data so that messages are received and understood clearly and purposefully. When we communicate effectively, both the sender and the receiver feel satisfied.

Communication takes many forms, including verbal and non-verbal, written, visual, and auditory. This can happen in person, on the internet (on forums, social networks and websites), over the phone (via apps, calls and video) or by mail.

To communicate effectively, it must be clear, precise, complete, concise, and full of compassion. We consider these to be the 5 C’s of communication, though they may vary depending on who you’re asking.

The predefined skill sets required for an effective communication process are as follows:

Observability: A person must have keen observational skills to absorb more and more knowledge and information .

Clear and concise: The message must be written in simple words, and it must be clear and precise to make the desired impact on the recipient.

Listening and Understanding: One’s most important skill is to be a good listener, alert and patient. He must be able to fully understand and interpret the message.

Emotional Intelligence: A person must be aware of emotions and be able to influence others from within.

Self-efficacy: In addition, he/she must be confident in himself and his ability to achieve the communication goals.

Confidence: As one of the essential communication skills, confidence reinforces the value of the message being communicated.

Respect: Conveying the message politely and respecting the values, beliefs, opinions, and ideas of the recipient is the essence of effective communication.

Nonverbal Communication: To better communicate with the receiver, the sender must also use nonverbal means of communication. These include gestures, facial expressions, eye contact, posture, and more.

Choosing the right media: Choosing the right means of communication is also a skill. It is necessary to choose an appropriate medium according to the situation, the priority of the message, the point of view of the recipient, etc.

Providing Feedback: Effective communication is always a two-way process. One person should review and provide feedback to support the other’s point of view.
