*Please note- this blog post was written during my time at Brain Fit Academy Inc. I have since continued this amazing work under my own company- Brain FUNdamentals LLC. I hope you enjoy!
“It’s the only thing that’s helped.” These are the words of the mother of my six year old client.
I was asking her how things were going and she was telling me that things were good. They were seeing nice changes with their daughter- specifically with sensory issues that she has had for a really long time. The mother went on to tell me that her daughter had been going to a “regular” OT for over a year and they hadn’t seen much progress at all- at least not until Brain Fit came into the picture.
As I’ve said many times before- this work is my passion. We are often the “someplace else” that families come to (for more about that, read or listen to the post titled “There’s Someplace Else“). We are the “someplace else” where positive changes are made. We are the “someplace else” that looks at things in a different way. And we are the “someplace else” that gets to the root of the challenges when others are still looking at the surface (so to speak). That’s why it’s my passion- because we are the “someplace else”, and we are the “someplace else” that works.
This mother and I continued to have a quick conversation about this type of therapy, and about how unknown it is. It’s not rocket science, and yet very few people know about it or use it as part of their practice- in the United States anyway. It seems that in the UK and in Europe, our work- Primitive Reflex Integration- might be a little be better known. This is also why I want to shout it from the rooftops and tell everyone about it. Everyone here in the US should know about Primitive Reflex Integration. Everyone should know and most certainly-teachers, occupational therapists and parents of kids who struggle should know. They should know. They just should.
Anyway- the point of this story is not about getting the word out to everyone (although I’d love for you all to help with that too!). The point of the story is that we at Brain Fit Academy do help. We as coaches, see changes in the clients we work with. And, of course, the parents see those changes as well.
Sometimes (and dare I say often) we are the “only thing that has helped”.
You don’t need to take my word for it however. Anytime- you’re welcome to check us out for yourselves.
