Other Therapies

In addition to more standard methods and treatments, complementary therapies can be useful tools to improve communication, boost self-esteem and reduce some of the behavioural symptoms and sensitivities associated with autism. 

Complementary therapies including art, music and animal-assisted therapy are sometimes used as part of another treatment program, or on their own as additional activities for an individual.
