EMDR is a non-drug based therapy to help deal with trauma. Kids on the Autistic Spectrum suffer trauma every day. I was one of those kids. As a 59 year old, undiagnosed female, I have suffered anxiety and depression since puberty. I have been on antidepressant and anti anxiety meds omn and off for 20 years. Someone last year suggested EMDR and I took the plunge. It was amazing and I haven't felt so good and in control of my mental health for years. Look into it and try it. It is non-drug, non-talking based and is backed up by clinical studies. I have read the data (I am a biomedical scientist by profession). At last I am having the courage to be me and not mask.
