quickly! We have taken him off almost all his medication for sleeping, he no longer takes allergy pills or sprays, nor does he take any
acid reflux medications. He sleeps great now with no night terrors.
We are very excited about his progress and can't wait for the next
Autism - “when you’re happy and you know it” - better sleep,
eye contact, more sociable - M’s granddaughter
I would like to share my experience with my 3 years old granddaughter which has been truly remarkable! I observed incredible
changes beginning after the first session. One of the most noteworthy effects was a change in her sleeping patterns. Normally she
would go to bed about 12 pm and was up by 4 or 4:30 every morning.
After the first session, she slept until almost 8am the next morning.
Since then, she has become habitual at retiring about 10 and waking
up about 7:30. (My pregnant daughter is delighted with more sleep
herself too!) Another big change we noticed from the second day
of therapy is making eye contact. She virtually never did this! And
now she will look at each one of us and the length of time she looks
at us is increasing all the time. She has become much more verbal
since therapy, and in fact, managed to make a sound for each letter
of the whole alphabet about 2 weeks after the therapy finished.
Before that she only attempted sounds for about 6 or 7 letters. She
is also trying to repeat many more words. Her attention span in
most everything seems to have increased and a few days ago we got
through the WHOLE song of “If you’re happy and you know it clap
your hands...” AND she clapped and stamped too! This was delightful for my whole family! It has been totally exciting indeed.
An update on my granddaughter after completion of a second
Her second session was done remotely and I was delighted when
I returned home and saw her more verbal, more attentive, more
social, more everything! But the BEST thing so far (and things just
keep getting better and better!!) was yesterday when she took my
hand and my daughter’s hand and said “come” so clearly and with
intention as she led us into another room and tried to make us sit
on the floor with her to play letters. This is the very first time EVER
