It is very important to provide the child with special educators. Kanner's syndrome is not accompanied by a violation of intelligence, but because of emotional disorders these children can not be trained according to the standard program. Together with the doctors, the educator must choose the method of training suitable for the child, as well as an individual program in which all his abilities will be used to the maximum.
It is also important to communicate with the child's psychologist, because a variety of psychological techniques can help develop communication skills in society, to teach them to adapt in the team. There are special techniques for autistics, for example, holding therapy (this is a method with the use of forced embraces), it helps to strengthen the emotional connection between the sick child and his parents.
We also need to carefully consider the diet of a child with Kenner's syndrome - these children need a special diet. Since they have a disruption in the digestive enzymes, the ability of the body to break down certain types of proteins found in flour products and milk is reduced. Because of this, it is necessary to limit the use of dairy and flour products to patients.
It is very important and the involvement of the family of a small autistic in the rehabilitation process. Parents should not be incomprehensible and cold towards the child, as this negatively affects the treatment process. It is necessary to surround the baby with care, love and support - this greatly contributes to the improvement of the patient's condition.
Among the methods of therapy are also developing psychological support courses, conducted both individually and in groups:
- classes with a speech therapist;
- exercises of physical therapy;
- procedures of medical work;
- dancing, music and drawing.
Many doctors with great care are prescribed psychotropic medications to autsters, since there is no reliable information that they have a positive effect on the patient. Use these drugs should be, if the child is overexcited, trying to physically harm yourself, problems with sleep. For treatment in these cases, antidepressants (Amitriptyline) and neuroleptics (in small doses) are used - usually Sonapaks, Haloperidol, Rispolept.
Also in the process of therapy with the use of drugs used drugs that improve the metabolism in the brain tissues (such as Aminalon, Cerebrolysin, as well as glutamic acid), and nootropic substances (Nootropil).
Vitamins and physiotherapy
Improve the condition of the patient can also therapy with the use of vitamins. To treat the syndrome of Kanner apply vitamins from groups B, C, as well as PP.
Performed and the procedures of physiotherapeutic treatment - magnetotherapy, water treatment, electrophoresis. Also children are engaged in physical education, receiving the necessary physical load.
In order to calm the autistic, sometimes it is recommended to use ground nutmeg, since it helps improve blood circulation in the brain and has a calming effect. It is necessary to take a tiny dose of this ingredient and dissolve it in a small amount of milk. But it should be remembered that the nut contains safrole (psychotropic substance), so it is better not to use alternative treatment without consulting a doctor.
After consultation with a doctor, you can use calming herbal medicines as an auxiliary method of therapy.
When treating herbs, you can use a decoction of the field bindweed, lemon balm, and also the leaves of the ginkgo biloba plant.
