ImTT can be useful in the management of the symptoms of Autism. People with autism process information slower than other people. Because of the slow processing of information, people with Autism are more easily overstimulated. Being overstimulated makes them avoid conversations because they can't keep up with the processing speed necessary to keep track of the conversation.
ImTT reduces the problem with feeling overstimulated by releasing the feelings of overstimulation that have built up or stored in the body. The effect of these stored feelings is that the person easily becomes overstimulated because the stored feelings become activated in addition to whatever is currently happening in the person's life.
In addition to reducing the effects of overstimulation, ImTT can also help in reducing the problems that anxiety create for people with Autism. Because people with Autism have a slower processing speed, social interactions often create feelings of anxiety because they can't keep up with the conversation. Reducing anxiety in social situations helps a person with Autism remain focused because social interactions are less stressful.
