HUGE Accomplishment No More Special Needs Services necessary at school
Posted 18 January 2012 - 10:31 AM
We have had extensive food allergy testing twice, observed what the kids shouldn't be eating, used needed supplements, removed food coloring, limited left-brain activities, promoted right brain activities, was diligent in making sure the kids were receiving the services they needed in school, and had VERY high expectations of our kids. What put our efforts over the top was a huge sacrifice we made to put the boys through a program in Roswell called Brain Balance. It's based on a book called "Disconnected Kids" by Dr. Robert Melillo. The program is super comprehensive and changes the child's brain neurologically. MUCH is expected from the parents during the program and after. Yet, isn't it worth it for your child to be successful in life! I was willing to do whatever it took.
The boys are still working on their social skills but that's the last hurdle as I was told it would be. Everything is a learning and teaching opportunity in life. Don't miss an opportunity!

Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
William Shakespeare, Sonnet 116
