Journal J Pediatr Matern & Fam Health - Chiropr. 2014 Fall;2014(4):Online acces only p 70-75
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the care of two children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and the documented changes in their language skills while receiving Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: Two children, under the age of 4 diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, received NSA care for one year.  The specific outcome that was measured was the Preschool Language Scale-4 (PLS-4). The PLS-4 was given four times over a one year period.

Results: Expressive and receptive language delays were assessed before, during, and after NSA care. These children saw an average increase of 24 months of language development in one year, while under NSA care.

Conclusions: The progress documented in this report suggests that NSA care may have positively affected the language development of these children. We support further research in this field.
