Whole brain approach
First Nutrition and Digestive health programme to reduce toxins and help restore neurotransmitter balance. The goal is to get the brain chemistry into a position where learning and change comes easier. Hypobaric oxygen can also be helpful at this stage.
Second Sensory Integration to train basic sensory skills that may have been missed or incomplete in early brain development. The iLs may be a component in this stage, and at home brain development exercises can make a big difference.
Neurofeedback has reduced -----'s anxiety. He is able to go out to busy places now. Because of this he now accesses a variety of activities that he can learn from.
(My son) still has autism and still struggles with lots of things, but your sessions have given him some level of calm and allowed his light to shine ever more brightly! Thank you both so very much. I am in awe of all you do!
Regarding meltdowns we are dealing with one or two a week now as opposed to the same number every day, and there is usually an obvious reason for these…
I would definitely say (his) anxiety levels have reduced, he is still anxious in new situations but nowhere near the flight or fight response he has lived with all these years. In fact there has been no "flight" since his neurofeedback sessions.
(My son's) desire for social interaction has massively increased and he generally wants someone to play with him now as opposed to disappearing into his room with his Lego! (his) class teacher has approached me several times to remark on (his) confidence and his rapidly growing friendships in school! He has even had friends home for tea and played appropriately with them, happy to share his toys. I have also seen him spontaneously put his arm around his friend when she was upset (gulp)!
'Our research has clearly demonstrated that neurofeedback can enhance both cognitive ability and creativity... I believe that this approach has much to offer in the area of special needs.'
