Traditionally, August is the month all about Family Fun, and so this month MC4K wanted to share a few of the fun family moments that have taken place as a direct result of our Microcurrent treatments for Autism! These are all recent quotes from the parents and participants in our ongoing research study…
“Before (Microcurrent), he hardly ever said anything –just mostly screams and squeals. Now he talks so much there are days I have a hard time getting him to stop talking! (laughs) Oh and now his school is adding Speech Therapy back onto his IEP –they took it off last November because for 3 years he made no progress.” –Mom of 8 yr old with Autism.
“He’s developed such a great affinity for sarcasm! Before (Microcurrent), my son just seemed ‘out to lunch’ and unaware of what was going on with everyone else in the room. Now he’s got all these funny comments he interjects into our conversations! His personality is just blossoming!” -Mom of 10 yr old with Asperger’s.
“She is advocating for herself now! Like her Dad turned the data off of her phone the other day –because she was using too much for her music. Before she would have just dealt with not having her music. But she actually asked him ‘Why did you take that away? Why can’t I have music on my phone?’ Now that he explained it, they worked it out so she understands when to use her music (with wi-fi) and when not to.” –Mom of 15yr old with Autism
“He never wanted anyone to play with him before (Microcurrent), now he’ll seek out his sister and invite her to play with him sometimes. The other day he did this, she told him she wanted to finish what she was doing and he said ‘Ok, I’ll wait for you.’” –Mom of 7 yr old with Autism.
“She used to always be in her own world –like she had on blinders. Now she notices things going on with the family … Like the other night I was feeling tired and she said to me ‘Oh, you just sit and rest. I’ll do the dishes.’ That’s never happened before!” –Mom of 12 yr old with Asperger’s.
“She’ll brush her own teeth and get ready for bed and all that now. The whole routine –I just say go get ready for bed and she does! Before (Microcurrent) I would have to do everything for her –like a toddler- and kind of like dragging her through each step –because she didn’t want to do any of it or something.” –Mom of a 10 yr old with Autism.
“He had speech therapy for years and years, but he’s never been able to form words –just grunts and other sounds.” (MC4K tech told Mom to work on requiring him to make a noise –any noise- for the things he indicates he wants. Mom remembered this technique from his Speech Therapists.) During one of his treatment sessions, the patient pointed at the toy he wanted to use during his therapy session and his mom prompted him by saying “You say it, what is it you would like?” The participant said “iPad” so clearly! -10 yr old with Autism.
These and the many other stories of our participants making exciting advancements is what inspires MC4K to continue sharing Microcurrent treatments with the rest of the Autism community.
