Medical Procedures and Autism

We define medical procedures as any medical activities or processes that are designed to treat people on the autism spectrum - other than the activities and processes found in standard health care.

Most of the medical procedures in this section are currently being used in an alternative or 'off-label' way, that is, they are not accepted as standard health care practice by most health care professionals.

For example, some people are using cell therapy to tackle a variety of metabolic problems - such as oxidative stress.  Other people are using biofeedback to help people on the autism spectrum to monitor and control their own body functions, such as hearbeat.
