Tom and Courtney noticed something different about their daughter, Haley, by the time she was 3 months old. They began the rounds of pediatricians, neurologists, brain scans, MRI’s and X-rays. After every test came the intolerable waiting period to hopefully answer the question, “What’s wrong with our daughter, and how can we help her?” Over and over again, they came back empty handed with more questions and without answers.
Finally by age 4, Haley was referrred to an Occupational Therapist, who began working with her and providing results. She worked with the therapist for a few years when the therapist discovered and suggested Neurofeedback. By this time, the emotional toll on the family was great, as there were two older children who Tom and Courtney felt they had not been able to provide the much needed time and attention. So, the family entered a program that combines neurofeedback and counseling. By this time Haley was 7 years old and had improved cognitively and developmentally as a result of the OT. After 9 months of treatment, Haley is still behind her peers, but she has improved dramatically from when she first began Neurofeedback therapy. Her mom, dad, and her siblings have a better understanding of what Sensory Processing Disorder is and how it has presented in Haley. Tom and Courtney feel better equipped to help Haley, as well as take care of their own needs. The other children are more encouraging and understanding of their sister’s condition, and the entire family is functioning more effectively as a unit!
