This is the history of a 10 year old boy with a diagnosis of autism who showed remarkable improvement over the course of six weeks of treatment with NeuroModulation Technique.
The boy was the second oldest of three children who lived with his mother and two other siblings.
He was healthy at birth and developed normally. He received all childhood immunizations and at age four the following changes manifested: drooling, tantrums, loss of the ability to repeat words, compromise of expressive and receptive communication abilities, and clumsiness and reduced coordination. There were problems with motor skills that especially affected his hands and he exhibited clumsiness when walking.
By age seven he developed obesity because of various psychotropic medications that physicians had prescribed. By the time the patient presented for NMT treatment all medications had been discontinued.
The patient’s mother reported the following improvements since the start of NMT treatment.
About three to four weeks after the start of NMT treatment the mother had a meeting with one of her son’s teachers. The teacher reported that about three weeks prior to the meeting she noticed that the boy had become more mature and that he answered questions in class properly. At that time the mother did not think that it was because of the NMT treatment, but later on she made the connection when she realized that the NMT treatment had started three to four weeks previously. The mother also stated that she had not told the teacher that her son was receiving NMT treatment. So the teacher shared her observations spontaneously.
The boy has continued to improve and to do very well in school. In the past couple of months all his spelling tests have been 100% even though they are more advanced and challenging now. He is also doing better in mathematics. He is still below grade level for his age but improving.
Overall, he makes more sense when he talks. Now he can watch a movie or read a book and talk about it clearly. Before the NMT treatment he did not make much sense when he tried to talk about a book or movie.
Before NMT treatment he was very scared of the dark but that is much better now.
Also, it used to be impossible for him to be at home without his mother because he would cry and yell, but now he is fine when his mother is not there.
When his father came to pick him up once a week for visits he used to refuse to go with him. However, since the NMT treatment he has been willing to go with his father.
His relationship with his younger sister has changed also. He used to prefer to be by himself and to not be bothered. Now he and his sister are spending more time together. They do fight from time to time, but now it is not because he wants to be left alone but instead it is because they are competing with each other.
When he first came to my office he played a lot with strips of plastic from plastic bags. He used to tie the strips together into a ball and play with it constantly. He exhibits this behavior much less now.
He used to laugh at inappropriate times and this has improved since NMT treatment.
His eating is more varied now. He is willing to try all kinds of food now.
Finally, the boy’s psychologist recently discharged him from treatment because she felt that he had met all treatment goals.
Needless to say, the boy’s mother was very pleased that the NMT treatment resulted in such an improvement in her son’s autism.
