What age do kids start needing VNS?

The need for tVNS increases with the severity of developmental impairment as well as the age of the patient.  By the early teen years, it seems most children with autism or developmental disorders may require tVNS in order to obtain a full, broad level of neurological recovery. I have found with my patients that tVNS is often required in patients older than fourteen years of age in order to realize a broader, more complete neurological recovery.
