Autism, ADHD and Spirituality:
What are Sensitive Children Telling Us?
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
Some sources say children with autism and ADHD are on the rise, while others believe the number of people diagnosed has increased dramatically since the 1960s, at least partly due to changes in diagnostic practice. In the developed countries the number of children diagnosed with autism more than doubled between 2000 and 2017.
Purported causes of autism range from risk factors during pregnancy – such as rubella, toxins, alcohol, cocaine, pesticides and air pollution, – to postpartum influences, such as vaccines.
Treatments vary from speech therapy or behavioral interventions to antidepressants and Ritalin. Yet in all our study and intervention of ADHD and autism, the spiritual or energetic component has been virtually ignored.
Why this rise in hypersensitive children? What can we learn about energy and spirituality from them? How can a better understanding of the spiritual or energetic components involved help us better appreciate and support them?
With us this hour to explore this controversial topic is Cress Spicer, a Reiki Master/Teacher, Certified Bodytalk Practitioner and a certified Bodytalk Access Trainer. Her training with children includes an N.N.E.B – Nursery Nursing Diploma.LISTEN HERE >>>
