With the development of neuroimaging in the last two decades, we have witnessed a quantum leap in the understanding of the brain. Thanks to the help of computational science, brain imaging methods have been miniaturized into portable versions and provides literally a map of the brain. Questions such as the following can be answered:
Brain-mapping technology computes brain activity and connectivity as the child or adult receives intervention.
What is unique: Autism Parent Care is the first company in Indiana, which we know of, that uses brain mapping technology as therapy is progressing. Thus supplementing results from traditional methods that rely mainly on behavior measurements.
Who could benefit: Any child or adult with neurologically-based disorders including autism, ADHD, learning issues, epilepsy, and other brain conditions. This method can show areas of strengths, IQ level; information that is helpful for developing IEPs and career preparedness.
Device: An FDA approved device, 510(K) 990538 and 510k K041263, will be used for processing electroencephalographic (EEG) waveforms of brain activity and quantitative electroencephalograms (qEEGs).
Testing: The test will take approximately 20 minutes; the procedure is painless, safe, has a history of over 50 years, and is FDA approved for research and clinical use. The raw EEG is collected in a resting, awake state. Children will wear a cap made of nylon with embedded 19 electrodes which will feel like a swim cap.

Cost: The cost is $150 self-pay: includes the testing, a detailed report and recommendations.
