Connie Lambrecht, a Jikiden Reiki Shihankaku from Nelson BC, Canada treated an autistic boy who was suffering from violent outbursts.

Reiki used for people with Autism and Learning Differences
People living with Autism and Learning Differences usually feedback that they have a 'good day' after receiving Reiki. It helps bring calm, a greater sense of peace and over time, can improve focus and anxiety levels.
Once again, while it is wonderful to have treatments from a practitioner, in most cases, it's preferable that a family member or carer give more regular treatments.
Autism and sleep problems
I once gave Reiki to a 12 year old boy with Autism who was having severe sleep problems and suffering from nightmares. I treated him, with his and his mother's permission, at night as he was going to sleep. I stayed a couple of hours each time. Gradually over a few weeks of regular treatment, his sleep improved, he started to feel safer and his school remarked on his improved concentration levels.
After that, I taught his mother so she could continue to give him Reiki treatments regularly.
