Manual Transmission: Shifting Gears through Adulthood with Autism

My Brain on Movies

When my wife and I started to make a plan about how we would get some help with my autism, most therapists in my area we found only worked with children.  We did, however find one neurofeedback therapist in a counseling practice who was willing to work with adults.  I saw both adolescents and adultsContinue reading “My Brain on Movies”

Tracked Systems Improve
