Since age 4, my son had been having trouble staying focused in school and at home. I would have to repeat directions for him several times, before he would understand what I said and get things done. His teachers called weekly, because he was frequently talking in class and not staying focused. They could not grade some of his work, because they could not read it. His handwriting looked like he was in kindergarten.
I wanted desperately to help my son, but I did not want him to take medication. I called Brain Works hoping we might find a non-medical solution. As it turns out, he loved listening to the center’s modified music used for his training.
Unexpectedly, my son’s handwriting improved, and it is now readable. You can actually tell what each word is. I was so amazed. He is now able to listen better, and he is doing his chores around the house – sometimes without me telling him to. Best of all, the teachers were no longer calling. My son is getting his homework assignments turned in now and getting credit for it, where he used to do the work and leave it at home. Evidently, he is not annoying the class anymore with his talking, or I would have heard from his teachers for sure. The best part is that his grades are improving and he is so proud of himself. There is a confidence about him that I had not seen before.
I noticed so many positive changes by the end of my son’s training program. I have no doubt that he will continue to do great things in and out of school. Thank you, Diane Daniels, for your help at Brain Works. It is greatly appreciated.
