If you press on introduction to neurofeedback on the left hand side column, it gives more information , it is available in the uk but isn't very cheap, although i have heard people on another american forum i go on do get improvements.

I f you press on domestic and international providers of neurofeedback you should find a practitioner who uses, there are a lot of these types of neuro treatments around, I know you can buy a small aduiovisual integration thing for around 200 dollars, but i would want to be sure that it would give results before i did that I can't explain how it works very well, but what i have read did make sense to me, they have also done articles in the american neuroscience magazine that I have read

Have n ot looked into AV aspects that much, but have a bit of info on audio integration and reducing hypersensitive hearing. There are two types of AIT that are recommended for ASD - Tomatis and Berard.

Here's an explanation of why you should seek a Berard practitioner

Not exactly on topic, but I just thought I'd throw that in.
