I would just wake up and I go, "I don't know how am I going to do another day." He was so challenging. Now, he's like the happiest little boy in the whole world and everybody loves him and he's always just happy. It's a welcomed change.
Alex before Brain Balance was speech delayed. That held him back in a lot of other areas, obviously, academically and socially. He also had a lot of self-doing, limited, repetitive behaviors. He needed a lot of help with school. He had a lot of interventions with the school through his IEP. He just needed help. He had an educational diagnosis of autism. He became very angry all of the time and I think that was due to frustration. He would just play with lights switching on-off, on-off, just things like that and he is my fourth son, and so I knew something was different.
What they were saying at Brain Balance in a lot of ways made sense, and then in other ways were just a leap of faith. We signed up Alex in Brain Balance and the exercises and the stuff he does, they’re different, they’re odd, but we could right away see the results and we were like, “Wait a minute, he’s getting full sentence as he’s talking. He’s using words that I didn’t even know he knew,” and so like parts of him were being released that we didn’t know. He was a lot happier. He’s able to do more things.
I met with his teachers at school and they needed to do a reevaluation for his IEP. It just kept saying, “This IEP looks like it’s written for someone other than Alex. This has no relation to Alex, who he is today.” We did the whole reevaluation and assessment. He went from having about 20 interventions and the combinations on his IEP to now having 4. We wanted him to have his whole life restored back to him. With these interventions and these techniques, we feel good that that’s exactly what’s happening.
