How SoeMac has helped families to improve their experience of poor sleep

It’s widely reported that a high proportion of ASD adults and children suffer from poor sleep, whether they are aware of it or not. The deficiency is more pronounced in the times of their deepest sleep, SWS (Short Wave Sleep) and REM (Rapid Eye Movement). These sleep phases are the times when the human body does much of its repair and regenerative work, resulting in this group also being deficient in a critical process. Poor quality of sleep leads to a downward spiral in neural and brain performance, further exacerbating the condition. 

Parents of children with autism who use SoeMac at night whilst they sleep, tell us they have seen positive developments and some quite amazing improvements in the cognitive function of their offspring. They tell us that they notice their behaviour, speech development, and attention spans have all shown improvement, and the common theme throughout is a better quality sleep for their child. 

This area is relatively new for us, and we are continuing our research into the bio-chemistry, and why the SoeMac is working so well.

 

 
 

"We have noticed one big significant change in our five year old son who has autism since using SoeMac; some days it could take up to an hour before he was ‘with it’, and mornings are so much easier now."


What is Autism & ASD?

The National Autistic Society describe autism as a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people and the world around them. It’s what’s known as a spectrum condition, which means that, while all people with autism share certain areas of difficulty, their condition will affect them in different ways. The spectrum is commonly known as ASD.

ASD usually becomes noticeable in childhood, and it’s thought that 700,000 people may have autism in the UK population, and 5m in the Western World.

It is called a spectrum disorder because although everyone with autism shares similar difficulties, the scale of how it affects people differs greatly.

The cause is not known but it is thought that genetic and environmental factors play a part. There’s no cure for autism but there are educational and behavioural support programmes that can help.

We are witnessing rapidly increasing numbers of ASD diagnoses in the Developing World, which may be due to better detection measures. There is a school of thought that links some of this increase to more use of Western drugs and vaccines – but this is a very “murky” area.

 

What are the symptoms?

ASD is very difficult to diagnose, but here are some of the things to look out for -

  • Difficulty with social interaction and communication
  • Difficulty understanding other people’s feelings and emotions
  • Difficulty starting conversations and taking part in them
  • Difficulty with language development
  • Struggle with change and prefer to stick to the same routine
  • Over or under sensitivity to sights, sounds, colours, tastes and lights

 

Living and coping with ASD

The main symptoms of ASD often occur in childhood so it’s important to try and get a diagnosis as soon as possible. There are many support services available to help those with autism and also those caring for someone with autism. The National Autistic Society is a good place to look for lots of helpful information and advice.

Our Testimonials

“We have noticed one big, significant, change in our 5 year old son, who has Autism, since using the SoeMac. He struggles to fall asleep and has always gone to bed late (usually around 10pm-11pm) so sometimes getting up for school in the morning has been a struggle, and although he was always a solid sleeper he also needed to lie-in, so was frequently tired in the morning.

Since using the SoeMac he’s still going to bed late but waking up 'raring to go' and much more refreshed and 'awake'. Before the SoeMac, some days it could take an hour before he was 'with it' in the morning, so that is a big help and mornings are much easier!”

“My son is sleeping through the night since using the machine, and a lot more alert throughout the day. There are some positive improvements; he is doing really well at school too, we can't part with the machine!

I am using the SoeMac for my son who has autism, sensory processing disorder, non verbal and challenging behavior. We have used the SoeMac for a few months and we can see a difference in many areas. My son is sleeping a lot better, he wakes up in the morning alert and happy. We have also seen more verbal words which has also helped with his challenging behaviour.

Most of all he has become more alert, he made a sandwich the other day, his social skills are fantastic. I can say this has been all noticed since using the machine. Also Hashim used to get up coughing and would bring up phlegm, this has also stopped. I would highly recommend this to families who have children with autism or other complex needs."
