Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To discuss alleviation of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) symptoms following a multi-disciplinary approach. To suggest that observable behavior might be caused by sensory disregulation.

Clinical features: A 2-year-old boy with multiple sensory and behavioral issues, diagnosed only at 6 years old with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), presented for occupational therapy. This case provides an educational tool of useful guidelines for chiropractors to incorporate into their practice, with proper training in the modalities described below.

Intervention and outcomes: Progressive reduction in behavioral and sensory issues was observed using Craniosacral Therapy (CST), Myofascial Release (MFR), Sensory Integration (SI), and gluten elimination over a 5 1/2 year period.

Conclusion: In this case of a child diagnosed with ADHD, benefits were observed in decreasing sensory and behavioral issues using a long-term multi-disciplinary alternative approach.
