Calming Autism.

You’re probably getting tired of me always plugging Twitter, but I can’t help myself!  The place rocks!

A couple of weeks ago, one of my Tweeps approached me to review an auditory calming system manufactured by his company, B-CalmSound.com!

I’m all for testing new gadgets, so I said, “Yes!”

At first glance, the system just looks like your average mp3 player, but it’s the sound tracks that deliver the gifts.

Here’s what the manufacturer has to say about the system.

What is b-Calm?  What is AudioSedation?

The simple and effective way to relax and improve concentration for ADHD and Autistic students.

For many students who cope  with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) school can be struggle.  Sounds that are typically ignored or unnoticed are often the source of stress, confusion and distraction for students with ADHD and ASD.

That’s why b-Calm has developed AudioSedation.  Using familiar headphones and personal audio technology b-Calm is able to make typically distracting and stressful noises unapparent to the wearer!  The result is a student better relaxed focused and ready to learn.

Common b-Calm Benefits Include

  • Dramatic drops in behavior outbursts by ASD students
  • Less distracted ADHD student
  • Longer attention span on individual work
  • Better writing clarity and math comprehension

I gave the system to HRH, and let him “have at it”. The first track actually made him more excited, but the subsequent tracks seemed to calm him somewhat.  I brought this “issue” to b-Calm‘s attention because I was curious if other parents had reported similar concerns.

Considering the fact that our brains are all hard wired differently, I wasn’t exactly expecting a miracle.  However, Curtis, my Tweep, was kind enough to email a newly produced track for me to try.

Ah, sweet serenity!

What I’ve noticed in the two weeks that we’ve been in “testing mode is a quiet surrender has come about HRH whenever he’s listening to the system.  He also seems calmer in situations that previously caused increased stimming.

I would highly recommend the b-Calm system as an alternative healing modality for children on the Spectrum.

Heck!  I’d recommend the system for anyone who’s looking to quiet their minds, and who’s also looking for increased clarity, awareness and concentration!
