    HiMyself and hubby are doctors based in North Wales, UK. We have a 3 1/2 year old with features of PDD-most likely high functioning autism.( she is still being assessed and not been given a definite diagnosis as yet) Apart from SALT support she is receiving, I am skeptical about the alternative methods of treatment advocated( modified diet, vitamins , chelation etc) although it seems to work for some parents but has not been proven scientifically.I recently came across research on Qigong massage tecniques in autistic children. Studies have been mostly in United States, in small groups and has apparently shown great results in most children irrespective of their disability. I contacted the group based in Oregon pioneering this method but unfortunately they dont have centres or anything similar in the UK. But they are ready to organise 2 day parental training in massage techniques in the UK, if we can get 8 to 10 families together who might also be interested.If anyone of you might be interested kindly message me back. If we manage to get numbers we can take this forward.To know more visit their web site- http://www.qsti.orgThanks againAnupama Nair

    Hi thereWe've been following the Qigong Sensory massage programme for two weeks now(bought the book and dvd from america)and we can really see some changes already.More vocal,less stims, better sleep-how are you getting on with it?Doesn't seem to be very well known in the uk yet.Would be really interested in hearing others experiences of this.Would also like to know if you managed to get other families together and got someone over from the states?Many thanksAlison
