Today we’re continuing in our brand new series where I go through some case studies of real patients that I’ve worked with. In this episode, I’ll tell you about a ten-year-old boy who first came into my office with ADHD, dyslexia, and a motor tic. Our goal was to help improve this boy’s focus and resolve hyperactivity without using medication.

In this case study, I cover more about what symptoms the child was experiencing, what kind of events in his patient history could have played a factor in how his brain got wired, and what kinds of assessments I used. Using a variety of assessments with my patients allows me to see how their brains have been wired up and figure out what kind of program might help their brains change and create new pathways. I truly love what I do and am so honored to be able to empower others with this kind of information. I hope this story will give you hope for your own child!

In this episode, we cover:

  • Introduction to the case study
  • Red flags in the patient’s history
  • Reasons why your child might need to constantly move around
  • My methods for assessing this patient
  • The brain and attention problems
  • An in-depth look at the Moro Reflex
