Can TouchPoints treat autism?

Posted by Customer Escalations on

TouchPoints are not meant to treat autism or any medical condition. Children and adults affected by autism have used TouchPoints to help stay calm, prevent stimming and startle response, focus in school, and report improved outcomes. The news reports on autism are based on actual users of TouchPoints and we are in the process of conducting double-blind placebo controlled studies in classrooms with children on the spectrum on a larger scale but this research is not yet ready for publication.  One in 68 U.S. children is affected by autism (ASD), this is a 30% increase from the 1 in 88 initially established just a few years ago by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  More than 3.5 million Americans live with an autism spectrum disorder. TouchPoints are not a substitute but can be used in conjunction with therapy, medications, and other interventions.  Our goal is to make TouchPoints accessible for everyone.
