Autism Spectrum Disorder (Autism)

Autism is a lifelong, developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them. (The National Autistic Society.)

1 and every 100 people in the UK has autism. There is no cure for this lifelong condition, however a range of therapies exist that can help individuals and their families.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is thought to help people with Autism. The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Trust reports that: “Oxygen Treatment may improve language, eye-contact, social interaction, irritability, or hyperactivity.”

The Herts MS Therapy Centre in Letchworth is home to the only Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chamber in Hertfordshire. As a registered charity we aim to help as many people as possible, welcoming anyone with any long-term or age-related condition, including people with Autism.
