Title: A single-case study: Exceptional response to an intensive programme of neuro-cognitive mobilisation by a boy with the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder


Biography: Rosalie Elizabeth Seymour


This study reports on the response to intervention by KW, a young boy with the diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder.  Between 2016 at the age of 5 years and 2019 at the age of 8 years,  KW received a variety of intensive neuro-biological, physical, educational and therapeutic interventions. These were selectively applied within a structured, cohesive, yet individualised framework named Neuro-Cognitive Mobilisation (NCM). In this period he progressed from being non-verbal, un-focused and remote to becoming a communicator, speaking two languages, and inclusion in a regular school with some support. This presentation will demonstrate KW’s  progress in intervention during this period until the present day, and will use video samples, pictures, graphs and programme outlines to illustrate this report. His developmental journey will be discussed with reference to the the rationale of NCM, and the manner in which this framework assists in the timing and application of various interventions.  Various evaluation tools were used which will also be demonstrated, e.g. the Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist, The Aberrant Behaviour Checklist, various language assessments, and a specially-compiled Communication Tracking Tool, to chart KW’s progress and stages of development. Some remaining challenges will be discussed.
