Teenager with Autism and Berard AIT Success
On-line AIT Checklist
the AIT Practitioner in South Africa who treated a 13 year old boy with
autism in South Africa.
"When I saw Dhamian the first
time, he was 13 years old. His mother was very exited after AIT."
The mother reported to me that
since completing his AIT sessions:
"He was more assertive, decided
on what he wants and do it, not waiting for some one to do it for him, like
taking his food tray to the kitchen when finished (never did it before).
He decided to move the TV to
another room by himself, etc. While in the AIT course, he
started to make eye contact with me.
He also started to demand
attention from his parents when talking to them, he insisted that he wants an
answer, that he was talking to them and wanted them to listen.
When I saw him at first I
noticed that he was moving his eyes up and sort of hide them away - you can only
I realized that this was
especially when he was looking towards the light (like a window, etc.) When he is looking away from the
light, he was more comfortable. I referred him for an eye test to optometrists
who specialized in color sensitivity. Other than sending him to an eye
specialist, who discovered that he had very bad eyesight, he got glasses from
them with quite a dark brownish tint. When he first put the glasses on,
he said: "Now I can see."
