Casey Diskin serves as a director at a Michigan-based recovery center where big things are happening to improve the lives of children with disabilities. Diskin has developed a unique approach to care that is gaining increased attention in the medical field as she helps not only the children, but their whole families. Diskin currently oversees an autism recovery program where she uses HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) combined with speech and occupational therapy, and applied behavior analysis to treat her patients. Her results have been very impressive and considered a huge success.
“Once patients with neurological conditions began seeing the great results Casey Diskin could accomplish through hyperbaric oxygen therapy, parents with children on the autism spectrum began asking her to perform the same therapy for their kids.”
Diskin claims that she hears stories constantly of happier parents and children as a result of treatment. To name a few of the successes, parents are reporting that their children have built new friendships and are also preforming better in school. “Medically, there is evidence that individuals with autism have inflammation in the brain,” says Casey Diskin. “HBOT medically addresses the issue by reducing the inflammation. Our novel program is a multi-therapy approach to treating autism. We believe in creating a synergistic approach that allows us to treat the medical issues of our clients while simultaneously teaching functional socially significant life skills.”
“Our unique approach to autism has been a huge success with families across the state,” says Casey Diskin. “We hear stories all the time of happier parents, children who have developed
new friendships, siblings playing together more, children performing better in school, and more successfully integrating into their communities.”
“When I started, I wasn’t even sure I knew what hyperbaric oxygen therapy was. Now I see it and how it works to help children with autism,” says Casey Diskin. “Our team is pretty amazing.
While recovery looks different for every client, it does mean that everyone is improving in their individual skills, health, and quality of life. This is what our synergy program does for its clients
and their families. I want us to do even more for a bigger population. We see so many older kids and young adults come to us. They need our services too,” she concluded.
