The Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is commonly misunderstood and even as a person who is in constant touch with someone with this condition, it is often hard to find a way to help them interact with the world. If you have a child or a close relative who has Autism Spectrum Disorder and you have taken the time to do some research about the condition and how to best interact with them and help them interact with the world around them, you have probably run into a number of articles and study results that seem to be all over the place.
You need to be careful that what you actually pay attention and listen to comes from a trustworthy source so that you will actually be able to help this person, rather than harm them. One thing you might want to read about is CranioSacral Therapy.
CranioSacral Therapy consists of a type of alternative medicine that is used to relieve pain through gently manipulating the skull in order to get it in harmony with the central nervous system.

It has been proven as an effective option to treat symptoms associated with ASD.
