Staggering results observed in Children with Autism and Developmental Delays
New Study on Children With Autism and Developmental Delays Show TouchPoints Wearable Devices Reduced 72% of Disruptive and Self-Harming Behaviours
The diagnoses of the children included Autism and Global Developmental Delay. Different problematic behaviours were tracked per the individual child. In one child, lying on the floor and screaming occurred 27 times and 67 times without the devices. That reduced to 6 times and one time, respectively over the course of the week with the TouchPoints. In another child, the number of incidences of headbanging was observed 273 times without the devices and 18 times with the devices.
Ali Rodenburg BA(Ed)Hons, MDip, the principal researcher, commented that introducing TouchPoints to the school yielded "an extremely positive impact on pupils who have limited ability to explain how they are feeling and communicate their frustrations."
Dr. Amy Serin, inventor and Chief Science Officer noted that she wasn't surprised at the researchers' findings. "When you understand how the BLAST technology in TouchPoints works, you can predict what behaviours will spontaneously change when they are applied in individuals who have difficulty regulating for a variety of reasons. We are looking forward to more data as there are several research institutions and schools around the world currently conducting studies using TouchPoints to examine their effects on stress, sleep, performance, pain, and behaviour."
