This course will present a literature review of the possible causes of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the physiological impacts on children with ASD. There will be a detailed presentation of the research by Jennifer Williamson et al. showing statistical significance in the areas of autism severity (p = 0.05), inflammation (p = 0.04), and vitality (p = 0.02). This course aims to teach a quantum physics approach to the science behind the Human Energy Field (HEF) Model used during the treatment of children with ASD. This Bio Field/HEF Model which encompasses treating in matter and fluids will be described and practiced. The Bio Field/HEF treatment model was first developed with a statistical significance of p = 0.0001in the thesis The Effect of General Osteopathic Treatment on Pain in Veterans Diagnosed with PTSD by Andrea Mounce-Halasz, 2014. A 2-day practical class that follows will instruct participants on this approach using OMT in the realms of matter, fluids, and fields. This approach will allow the Osteopath (OMT) and/or OMT student to successfully treat sensitive children such as ones diagnosed with ASD and has generalizability to other populations that include trauma on the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual planes such as: autoimmunity disorders, concussions, MVA, women’s health issues, PTSD etc. of all ages.
