Neurological Activity and Comprehension Skills Improve for Students on the Autism Spectrum


The University of Alabama at Birmingham


The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Cognition, Brain and Autism Center collaborated with Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes to study the comparative effects of Visualizing and Verbalizing (V/V) on the brains of children on the Autism Spectrum. This fMRI study, highlighted in two recent peer-reviewed papers, examined activity in the language areas of the brain during comprehension tasks.


Dr. Kana, the head of the study, reported that “V/V resulted in changing brain response patterns in children with autism – more focused, specialized brain activity and functional connectivity as a result of intervention.” Associated significant increases in language comprehension were noted against matched controls.
