Before I would have to force him to sit down and do 15 minutes of reading, now he'll sit down all on his own and read and not have any problems.
Before Brain Balance reading was a big struggle. He worked hard at trying to do the work in school but reading was a challenge. Math was beginning to become a challenge. He would have these spells where’s he’s corrected and he would just burst into tears or kids would do something that would upset him and just burst into tears. He’s been on the special education program since he was three or four. He would stand up, sit down, move all around. He could not sit still in a chair. Doing homework at night, he could not … He had to have something in his hands. If he didn’t have something in his hands I noticed him rocking back and forth. In an environment where there are people all around him, different kids, he wasn’t playing with them.
I tried to do the Brain Balance Program on my own utilizing the book and it was just too overwhelming. Just doing the test and trying to figure out, okay, is he slanted a little? It was too much for my untrained abilities.
The difference between the beginning of third grade and the end of third grade after Brain Balance, he wasn’t having his outbursts, his emotional outbursts over minor things. In fourth grade, I have not had any teacher tell me he can’t sit still. No outbursts at all. Before I would have to force him to sit down and do 15 minutes of reading, now he’ll sit down all on his own and read and not have any problems.
If you don’t get the basics at a young age, the person is going to struggle for the rest of their lives. The earlier you catch it, the better it is. If you see problems like with Jacob, dyslexia, the struggle with the math, the autism and you know that there’s a way to fix it, you want to fix it early so that all of their schooling comes easier to them and they don’t have to struggle all their lives because these problems weren’t fixed in the beginning. To know that I don’t have to put him on medicines to fix it and he always has to be on that medication because we fixed the problem, we didn’t treat a symptom. It’s definitely worth the time and the effort and the money just to be able to fix these symptoms by fixing the problem.
