Binaural Beats for Asperger’s

I read from a woman in the UK, on her blog, that binaural beats can help with Asperger’s.  If you’d like to read her article about what things she does to reduce anxiety and help with sensory overload, you can check her blog post here.

Here is a sample of some binaural beats you can try.  Different frequencies help alter the state of your brain waves.  So in the instance of too much going on in your mind, the below YouTube video would assist in bringing your brain waves down just slightly so you can function better.  The video is for 12-14 Hz, which is specifically for putting your brain waves in a calmer Beta wave (I think! 🙂 )  I’m still experimenting with it, but thought I’d share.  These aren’t just for people with autism though.  Anybody can use these to help with different things, like insomnia or to help focus.  Here is a brief overview of what binaural beats are and how they can help.

What it feels like being in public and having Asperger’s

If you have Autism, Asperger’s, or high functioning autism, you will probably relate to this video.  It made me anxious just listening to it!  While the visual part is not exactly how it is for me, this is definitely how I feel.  Trying to hear people talk that are standing right next to me is almost impossible.  And just like this person said, it all depends on how I’m feeling that day.
