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.
