About Biomedical Interventions
A biomedical interventions is a dietary and nutritional intervention which aims to correct any potential health imbalances focusing on five key health areas:
• Gut health
• Immune system
• Oxidative stress injury
• Toxin overload
AT+’s team of consultants comprises of professionals in the field of autism including, medical doctors, research scientists, behaviour analysts, social workers and psychologists. These professionals aim to ensure we are providing a holistic approach to diagnosing and treating autism. You can read more about the expected outcomes of such intervention here.
Prior to the first consultation, we will set up a secured web portal using the ChARM (Electronic Health Record) web interface to enable an easy sharing of key information on your child, such as, evaluation forms, food diary, level of autism, as well as lab results and consultation reports. We will ask you to complete a series of questionnaires in advance of the consultation. You can use this portal to communicate with us and to upload any relevant reports you may wish to share with us.
A typical progression through the ATPLus treatment plan is presented in the figures below .
Figure 1 & 2: Typical progression with consultations, treatment and testing plans. The ATEC is an online standardised questionnaire developed by the Autism Research Institute in the USA which is used to monitor the treatment outcomes, this test is available from the ChARM web portal. Progress Q stands for: Progress Questionnaires.
The plan will be specific to each child with regard to the dietary and nutritional recommendations as well as recommended tests and recommendations on follow up consultations. We are aiming help you prioritise the treatment plan and empower you to make the right decisions for your child at each step of the way. Depending on the issues your child is experiencing and response to treatment, parents are typically able to self manage the treatment within 1 to 2 years of starting the programme. You can thereafter contact us at any stage in the event that you wish to receive an update on your child’s progression or in the event that new challenges are experienced.
The frequency of the consultations and duration will depend on the child and his/her family. A typical progression in term of testing and consultation is presented in the two figures below, but we stress that each treatment plan will be specific to each child.
