A new treatment for autism involving strict rations of TV watching and computer use for children under the age of three is seeing parents bringing their children from miles away.

Polish entrepreneurs Joanna Sokolska and Anna Cieslinska-Fakaj have set up Pro-Med Early Intervention Centre, in Wellington Street.

The treatment, which is common in Poland but not in the UK, focuses on communication skills. This means TVs and computer games are frowned on.

Speech and language expert Joanna said: “TVs, mobile phones and computers are very dangerous for childrens’ development. All those under the age of three should not watch TV for more than half an hour a day.”

Pro-Med is backed by Charles Little of accountants KSK who said the business is an “exciting prject.”
