Their Success Stories
”We started the Brain Harmony programs at the end of last year and it has been such a game changer for us. I have seen a complete shift in my son’s ability to control his emotions and to avoid meltdowns. He is more receptive to redirection and better grasps the consequences of his actions. He is more focused and less oppositional and argumentative. He is still his quirky self, but this therapy has cleared the cobwebs and calmed and centered him more. He can be more fully himself, as well as more comfortable and confident in his skin.
I have employed someone to stay with him at his home school group to help keep him on track and make sure he is removed from the situation if he becomes overly distracting to the class. The teacher approached me after the last class and suggested that he no longer needs to have someone there with him. This is a huge for us. My goal was to get him to the point where he could manage on his own in a classroom setting and I truly believe Brain Harmony is what helped him get there! Thank you for everything!”
— Nick's Mother
David - Attention & Regulation Success
When David first came to Brain Harmony he was anxious, very distracted and awkward. He was treated with conventional occupational therapy in a large health system for over two years however he had not seen any improvements in handwriting, academics nor his nervous energy.
"He used to be my problem child who struggled in school especially reading and writing. Now he is my A/B, honor-roll child who unexpectedly became the quarterback of his football team. My son is the self-confident child I always wanted him to be. Thank you, Brain Harmony!"
- David's Mother
Lorelai - Dyslexia Success
Lorelai hated reading and would have tantrums before going to school. She was eventually diagnosed with Dyslexia. Neither school nor traditional therapy made much difference.
"Just the other day, I found Lorelai reading a book quietly in her room, which is something she never did before. Not only is she reading them, but she can narrate the stories back to me, which means she's processing the information! I cannot thank Brain Harmony enough!"
- Lorelai's Father
Tommy - Behavior Success
Tommy tortured himself, his teachers and his classmates at school. He whined and cried often. Sitting still for reading was impossible; he needed to get up, touch others and run around. He would experience tantrums when it was time to change subjects or go to a different class room. Constant suspensions put his parents’ employment at risk.
"I received two nice compliments today regarding my child's behavior. Not only have we seen a huge difference, I was asked today if Tommy was put on medication. I proudly said, 'no, he is receiving therapy under the direction of Brain Harmony.' Thank you so much!"
- Tommy's Mom
Ellen - Speech & Language Success
Ellen had low self-confidence. She often appeared to be disinterested in Kindergarten and had flat affect. She rarely spoke but when she did her speech was hard to understand.
"I couldn't believe my eyes when I came to pick her up from school. I watched as she initiated conversation with other children. Thank you, Brain Harmony, for helping Ellen to be so confident. Today she is quite talkative, initiates conversations and is a very busy bee!"
- Ellen's Mother
Baylie - Auditory Processing Success
Baylie had trouble retaining the names of letters and learning the sounds associated with those letters. She also displayed a general clumsiness and had difficulties with hand-eye coordination.
"I was so proud when Baylie's teacher told us that she has vibrant conversation, she is connecting with other children, and she is engaging in the classroom. Your program has been remarkable."
- Baylie's Mom
Ashley - Prader Willi Sydrome Success
Ashley was diagnosed with Prader Will Syndrome as a baby. She suffered from gross motor delays, incontinence at night, had trouble regulating her temperature and required significant amount of time to process small amounts of information.
"Five weeks into the program, Ashley stated, 'I'm cold.' She had never commented on her temperature before. In addition, she had started to climb up her swing set and slide without falling and she started to pull herself up out of the pool instead of using the stairs. Furthermore, I am happy to say that she has woken up dry 16 of the last 18 nights. At her most recent parent/teacher conference, her math teacher was nearly bursting to tell us that she had solved a math problem in 8 seconds! Thank you, Brain Harmony!"
Grace - Learning Ability Success
Grace came to Brain Harmony reading 4 years below her peers. She had difficulty reading, spelling and retaining information taught to her the previous day. Grace rarely initiated conversation with others and she would often shut down in group situations. Additionally, Grace would only walk on her toes and skip and pace around the room.
"You were the first ones who gave me an answer to unlock my child. It was like she was trapped, and you let her out. I can't believe the difference. After only 6 months, she is reading at my level. Thank you, Brain Harmony!"
- Grace's Mother
Anne - Stress & Sleep Success
Anne had sleep difficulties most of her young life. She came to therapy for irritability, oppositional behavior and tantrums that lasted hours. At times, she shared feelings of self-loathing and guilt. Anne was only 8 years old at the time.
"Brain Harmony recommended Anne start with the Dreampad at night. I was shocked what a difference this pillow made right from the start. We began using the pillow every night which changed Anne's life and our family’s situation. Almost immediately she began to have 'good days'. We won't go anywhere without her Dreampad."
- Anne's Mother
Griffin - Autism Spectrum Success
Griffin's parents sought help when Griffin was 2 years old. He was sensitive to sound and had not started to speak like other children his age. He would spend hours playing alone and rarely engaging other children.
"When our son was diagnosed with autism, we were crushed. This program has been nothing short of miraculous for our family. It has returned our son to us and given him the ability to achieve his full human potential."
- Griffin's Dad
Cooper - Sensory Processing Success
Cooper struggled at home, on the playground and at school. He was so sensitive to sound, he could not participate in basic childhood activities, like birthday parties. A popped balloon or a neighbor's dog barking would create a level of hysteria that left his Mom exhausted.
"Brain Harmony is AMAZING! Our son has experienced outstanding (almost unbelievable) progress in their care. They have effectively changed the trajectory of our son's life. As a result, he is a happier, healthier, little man with a very hopeful perspective on his issues. We are immensely grateful and will forever hold Brain Harmony in the highest regard."
Greg - Optimal Performance Success
Greg wanted to be a better soccer player. Unfortunately, Greg was the child no one picked to be on their team. He was clumsy, would fall over when trying to kick and would often trip on his own feet. Greg was a liability on the field.
"As a parent, I want the best for my child. I had to do something to help Greg and fortunately I found Brain Harmony. At the end of the first tournament, the coach selected Greg as the MVP of the team. He is now one of the best on the field and everyone wants Greg on their team. He is scoring!"
- Greg's Mom
Susan - Brain Injury Success
Susan was 60-years old when she sustained a brain stem injury in a car accident. Since the accident, she was unable to tolerate noisy or crowded environments. She also had trouble with her balance and coordination.
"Thank you, Brain Harmony,! I feel like myself. I am now able to attend church, go to restaurants, and attend meetings since my accident. My balance has improved tremendously, and I am now taking Zumba classes!"
Ethan - Down Syndrome Success
Before Ethan started Brain Harmony, he functioned at an 18-24 month old level. Ethan was 11 years old at the time. He would need multiple physical and verbal cues in order to complete a single task, and sometimes that wasn’t enough for him to get something done.
“After the Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP) and iLs, Ethan started making HUGE cognitive gains! He knows how to get a drink out of the faucet, he understands how to put his laundry in his bag, and he not only opens doors but turns the knob. He has started to close doors rather than swinging the door open and charging through! He is also thinking things through now. For example, after being handed his pajama shirt to put on, rather than trying to put the shirt on over his clothes, he actually first took off his daytime shirt and then put on his pajama shirt! I was so excited!"
Quinton - Bed Wetting Success
Quinton was 10 years old and still wet the bed. Mom and Dad had tried everything including alarms, restricting fluids and ruling out medical conditions. He refused to participate in sleepovers worried that his friends would find out about his problem. Mom could tell that his self-esteem was suffering.
“The Brain Harmony team has been nothing short of extraordinary. They put a program together for Quinton and coached the family through all of the bumps in the road. Quinton attended his first sleepover this weekend and he was completely dry!”
