Yoga practicing may heave a positive and profound impact in reduced symptoms of autism, epidemiological studies suggested.

Autism is one of the most common forms of brain development disorder affecting one in 166 child every year in US alone. Children diagnosed with autism tend to have weak immune system and auto immune problems.

Yoga, the ancient technique practiced for harmonized external and internal body well being, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement and gesture..... has been well known for people in Western world and some parts in Asia due to health benefits reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.

In the study using experimental pretest-post test control group design, to investigate the effectiveness of the Get Ready to Learn (GRTL) classroom yoga program among children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) with intervention group received the manualized yoga program daily for 16 wk, and the control group engaged in their standard morning routine, researchers found that yoga group expressed significant decreases in teacher ratings of maladaptive behavior, as measured with the Aberrant Behavior Checklist, in compared to control group.

After taking account of other con founders, Dr. Koenig KP, the led author suggested that yoga intervention may have an therapeutic role in ameliorated classroom behaviors in children with Autism.

Other researchers in examine the relaxation effect of yoga in children with an autism-spectrum disorder(ASD) conducted a study of 24 children aged 3-16 years with a diagnosis of an ASD assigned to an 8-week multimodal yoga, dance, and music therapy program based on the relaxation response (RR), filed the following result
1. Children attended yoga exercise with age of 5-12-year-old children demonstrated a strong change according to Behavioral Assessment System for Children, Second Edition (BASC-2)
2, After completed the class, all children, unexpectedly displayed a enormous change in core features of autism measured by the Atypicality scale of the BASC-2.

With the finding information, researchers suggested that movement-based  involving yoga and dance may be used as an adjunct intervention in modified RR behavior, for treating behavioral and some core features of autism, particularly for latency-age children.

Interestingly, in support of the above differentiation, researchers at the Ohio State University Medical Center in the searching of the published article and studies, 23 studies and 9 work-, 11 ADL/IADL satisfied the criteria and guideline selected indicated that daily yoga therapy combined with brief exercise may be sued as a secondary integrated form of intervention to improve classroom performance and behavior and physical activities.
