Sensory regulation and speech development: A mother's journey with Connect My Brain

Listen on: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts

Welcome to another insightful episode! Today Dr. Laura Hanson is joined by a special guest, Amber, who opens up about her son Ryan’s developmental challenges and the journey they’ve undertaken to help him thrive.

Amber’s son, Ryan, has faced developmental challenges stemming from complications at birth and ear problems. From fluid in the ear to a punctured eardrum, Ryan’s sensory processing was greatly impacted, leading to sensitivity to sound and regulation issues. We dug deep into the strategies Amber has implemented, including exercises, brushing, and chiropractic adjustments, to promote healing and regulation for Ryan.

One key takeaway from our conversation was the significance of consistent retraining processes for children with sensory issues. We delved into the success that Amber has witnessed, particularly with the improvement in Ryan’s core strength and his achievement of potty training through these exercises.

It was enlightening to hear Amber’s perspective on early intervention for children’s health and her emphasis on thinking outside the box when it comes to seeking alternative treatments beyond traditional therapy and medical diagnoses. Amber’s journey with Ryan exemplifies the transformative power of neurofeedback and targeted exercises at Connect My Brain, driving home the importance of early intervention and considering the impact of hearing on a child’s development.

In this episode, we cover:

  • The role repetition plays in retraining behaviors
  • The significant changes in Ryan’s life since starting neurofeedback
  • Strategies for healing ear issues (chiropractic recommendation!)
  • Potential risk of regression when rushing toilet training
  • How a tongue tie affects breathing and oxygen levels
  • The importance of core strength and it’s positive impact on wetting the bed
  • The outcome of alternative treatments beyond traditional therapy that the family explored for Ryan’s developmental challenges
