Autism Intervention Therapist:
Marcus Pearson (aka Mr P), is a qualified and experienced autism intervention specialist from Rochdale, Manchester, England. He combines his 20+ years experience of sport/play therapy and practical life skill coaching with more modern scientific tools. He is a qualified SSP (Safe and Sound Protocol Therapist) and in addition to using physical activity, he also uses PEMF (Pulsed Electro Magnetic Frequencies) and HRV (Heart Rate Variability) tools to support children, young people and adults with autism (and a range of other difficulties) to better interact with their surroundings and themselves.
For those who can self-regulate to some extent, Marcus utilises The Safe and Sound Protocol. SSP uses common popular music filtered in a specific way so that human speech (i.e. the melody and intonation of speech) is emphasised whereas bass and treble frequencies are filtered out. This is then listened to by the participant via headphones for a period of 5 hours (split into daily sessions of between 20mins – 60 minutes). More info here.
For those who struggle with self-regulation, Marcus uses HRV (Heart Rate Variability) tools – more specifically HRV games to engage with the individuals. This supports them to relax and focus for increasingly longer periods – better preparing them for the SSP. More info here.
For those who cannot self-regulate at all, Marcus uses PEMF tools – more specifically tools such as Neorhythm to entrain the brain and heart frequencies into a better regulated (more coherent) state – ideally suited to HRV and SSP. More info here.
Marcus has termed his approach ‘VFP’ (Vibrational Frequency Therapy) and it has proven effective not only with those suffering from autism but also those suffering from ADHD and ODD. Furthermore, it has also proven very effective with those who are prone to seizures or are more auditory or light sensitive and struggle with loud or sudden noises. It is also ideal for those suffering from trauma, stress and anxiety (possibly showing symptoms of withdrawal or are selective mutes) – or struggle with anything that is challenging or new.
The goal of this therapy is to facilitate better self-regulation via activation of the PNS (parasympathetic nervous system). In doing so it reduces stress, improves behavioural state regulation, and reduces auditory hypersensitivity to facilitate better social engagement and learning.
