The article features a young boy with Asperger's syndrome, who began practising the Transcendental Meditation Technique twice daily at the urging of his mother.
Asperger's is often referred to as 'high-functioning autism.' Asperger syndrome (AS) is a developmental disorder, associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), one of a distinct group of neurological conditions characterized by an impairment in language and communication skills, as well as restrictive patterns of thought and behaviour.
Knowing of research findings that Transcendental Meditation enlivens the prefrontal cortex, the 'CEO of the brain'—and understanding that this area is in control of the ability to make decisions, organize, socialize, and control impulses—the mother felt that a better functioning prefrontal cortex would be helpful to her son.
In an article published in the July/August 2011 issue of Autism-Asperger's Digest Magazine, the mother, a substitute schoolteacher, reports on her son's progress after learning Transcendental Meditation.
A couple of months after her son began practising the technique, she woke up one day realizing that it had been some time since he had thrown a temper tantrum. His behaviour at home and at school improved, as did his grades; and his family life, which had become very stressful as a reflection of his difficulties, became more harmonious and happy as a result. She encourages other parents and families to look into the Transcendental Meditation Programme for the benefit of their children and themselves.
