Support for Families of Children with Autism

Jun 27, 2014

For the past decade, the Teaching Research Institute and the Qigong Sensory Training Institute have been researching the effectiveness of using a daily massage program with children ages 2-6 with autism. The program of massage given by trained parents has been shown in research studies to be effective in reversing sensory difficulties and improving behavior.

The program is now extending the research to older children. Enrollment is currently open for children with autism ages 6 to 11 to participate in a research study that will allow families to receive training and support in the intervention. Families enrolled in the study receive more than $1,500 worth of services for free, including training, treatment and assessments. See the Qigong Research Press Release for enrollment information and details.
