Valentine’s Day, or Friendship Day” as it is sometimes referred to in schools, is supposed to be a day to celebrate friendship and love. But for some kids on the Autism spectrum, it can be a reminder of how difficult it is for them to make and keep friends. Autistic kids have are hardwired sometimes differently when it comes to social cues, and humor. They can be blind to body language, they may not understand idioms or get some of the idiosyncrasy of social behavior that for some reason we have deemed as “normal”. Some children don’t have the huge social hurdles as others, and some kids are more blissfully unaware of there even being a problem, and for those kids I suppose there isn’t’ one. But for the kids in the middle, the older they are, the worse it may be.

Monday night at 8pm, be sure to tune in for our newest episode of Hope Saves the Day on Autism Radio Tonight's Show is with your Host Paul Cimins talks about a Topic that is being talked about from Dr Doidge on how the Brain can be Rewired.Also talks about how video games  like Mind craft can actually be great tools for individuals with Autism and people suffering with Anxiety and Stress.

The Brain’s Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity, Doidge shares their stories, explaining how light, sound, mild electrical stimulation and even something as simple as “controlled” walking has helped tame what he calls the noisy brain – one in which disease or damage has caused neurons to misfire. These interventions, influenced by Eastern ideas of energy but in accord with Western science, use energy to influence these misfiring neurons, much as a conductor encourages an unruly orchestra to play in sync. And when the noisy brain is resynchronized, a person’s function improves – significantly and swiftly.
