I will maybe discuss Brody's assessment results another time when it is not midnight, but basically they confirmed that he is right brain delayed. They also informed me that his reading comprehension was at a 7th grade level! There were many more strengths that he had as well. That is what is so amazing about these kids and what so many people don't understand - They are Geniuses!! They are so smart and partially because one side of their brain has developed much faster than the other (creating the Brain Imbalance). Also, because one side is stronger, they continue to favor and use that side more frequently which in turn stimulates that side even more creating an even greater imbalance.
Anyways, I need to go into more detail about a lot of things later and I can post information with studies, science, etc. backing up this program. I will also just explain the basics of what it is and how it works.
Bottom Line: Just from my short experience so far and from my readings, talking with other parents, etc. I KNOW this program works and can work for every child to varying degrees. So, if you have a child or know of a child with Autism, Aspergers, ADHD, OCD, Tourettes, Dyslexia or Learning Disabilities, you should look into this program. Really. Read, research, ask questions, get the book Disconnected Kids (link takes you to amazon where you can buy the book or download it for your kindle or Kindle iPhone app) by Dr. Robert Melillo and read it. So, so many kids are affected by these problems and so SO many parents don't even realize their child has a problem, let alone know that there is help out there.
Okay, I am done for the night since it is almost midnight and was totally going to go to bed at 9:00 tonight...
Just wanted to post a few photos of the kids during their first week here. I will post some later of our new place and the giant bug that was in our apartment tonight!!! yuck.
Thanks for all of those who support us and help us and pray for us throughout this journey. We love you!
