Aiming to Enhance Quality of Life for Autistic Children with Mozart Sonata, App, and Robot

A team of researchers from the Brain Research Center at Universidad Veracruzana (UV) is working to improve the quality of life for minors diagnosed with autism. The team, led by neurobiology specialist Anllely Grizzet Gutiérrez Rodríguez, is dedicated to helping children with autism, a neurobiological disorder that affects communication, social interaction, and behavior.

The UV team believes that pharmaceutical intervention should only be considered after therapies and enriched environments have been used to help rewire brain connections in children with autism. This approach aims to help children develop their full potential and lead fulfilling lives.

To achieve this goal, the team has developed innovative tools such as the Reading-Writing in Autism (LEA) web application. The application helps stimulate reading and writing skills in children with autism and has proven to be effective in improving learning acquisition and communication skills in children without intellectual impairment.

In addition to the LEA web application, the team uses tools like a robotic arm and musical stimulation with Mozart’s compositions to engage children with autism and improve their learning and behavior. By providing controlled stimulation and enriched environments, the team aims to increase attention span, reduce anxiety levels, and improve social interactions in children with autism.

The UV team continues to explore new ways to support children with autism through ongoing research and collaborations with institutions like the Xalapa Technological Institute. Through a combination of therapies, enriched environments, and innovative tools, the team is making strides in helping children with autism reach their full potential and lead fulfilling lives.
