A team of researchers from the Brain Research Center at the Universidad Veracruzana (UV) is dedicated to improving the lives of minors with autism. Led by neurobiology specialist Anllely Grizzet Gutiérrez Rodríguez, the team is focused on using therapies and enriched environments before considering pharmaceutical intervention.

Autism spectrum disorder cannot be cured with medication. Individuals with autism have unique brain architecture characterized by an excess of neuronal connections in some areas and a decrease in others. The goal of the UV team is to help rewire these connections through therapies and environmental enrichment to resemble those of neurotypical individuals.

To achieve this, the team has developed innovative tools such as the Reading-Writing in Autism (LEA) web application, which helps stimulate reading and writing skills in children with autism. The application has been shown to improve learning acquisition and communication skills in children without intellectual impairment.

The UV team also employs tools like a robotic arm and musical stimulation with Mozart’s compositions to engage children with autism and improve their learning and behavior. By providing controlled stimulation and enriched environments, the team aims to increase attention span, reduce anxiety levels, and improve social interactions in children with autism.

With ongoing research and collaborations with institutions like the Xalapa Technological Institute, the UV team continues to explore new ways to support children with autism and enhance their quality of life. Through a combination of therapies, enriched environments, and innovative tools, the team is making strides in helping children with autism reach their full potential and lead fulfilling lives.
