Increase in Autism Rate and Treatments Focus of Autism Awareness Month
Date:4/7/2010

Brain-Training Company Refocuses on Powerful Resource

Denver (Vocus) April 7, 2010 -- Autism awareness efforts this April come with alarming new statistics and some hopeful highlights too. The bad news: according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in every 110 children born in the United States will be diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, or ASD. That’s up dramatically from last year’s accepted rate of one in 150.

But hope is also a highlight of autism awareness efforts this World Autism Awareness Day (April 2nd) and throughout National Autism Awareness Month (April): National brain-training company LearningRx is focusing awareness on how “brain training” is proving a valuable resource for people with ASD.

“Our brain training can dramatically improve life for many people with an autism spectrum disorder,” says LearningRx Vice President of Research and Development Tanya Mitchell. “We’ve seen incredible results for people who’ve tried many other treatments and therapies. Our programs strengthen weak cognitive skills and that can kick-start intense growth and open the world in a way not possible before.”

Autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, is an umbrella term for five different disorders including autism and Asperger’s syndrome. ASD is a complex brain disorder that inhibits a person’s ability to communicate and develop relationships and often comes with extensive cognitive and behavioral challenges. There is no “cure” for autism, but with highly individualized treatment, some people with ASD can become independent adults.

A review of 49 LearningRx students with ASD shows brain training brought an average gain of 18 percentage points across
