When you offer parents training and support in QST, you are offering them a chance to improve their child’s autism. Your family is fortunate to have connected with you: QST is the only intervention that has controlled research studies showing that all aspects of autism improve; QST has better results across the spectrum than any other autism intervention; and parents who receive help from a QST Certified Trainer have better results than parents who are on their own.
This week you’ll be reading QST Massage Research so that you can get up to speed on what the research shows. One of the things you will learn is that families must continue daily QST for 1-2 years in order to receive the full benefit of the treatment. This is because full benefit can only be reached after touch and other sensory problems return to normal, and that takes time. You will also learn basic Chinese Medicine concepts as they apply to QST.
