Peter was a 6-year-old boy diagnosed with significant global delays. His family came to TheraPeeds from another country after exhausting their local services with minimal change. At the time Peter’s family had been trying to get him into schools, but he was not accepted to any because of his behaviors. Peter’s parents were desperate to help their son.
We evaluated Peter and immediately recognized he would benefit most from the Intensive model. He then proceeded to participate in a series of 4 intensives with 3 month breaks in between. During the break times, he returned home and with his parents help and hard work, he was able to maintain his gains.
Throughout the process, Peter showed signs of significant progress at each stage. Now that he’s done with the treatment, the behaviors that barred him from entering a classroom are gone and the concerns that brought them in the door such as poor attention, poor communication, unable to inhibit or control his body, and inability to follow instructions are a thing of the past.
Peter’s parents are extremely happy with his progress. Peter is now in school and was enrolled in after-school soccer without having to tell the coach about his disability. He was an active part of the team and had a successful season. Throughout the process Peter’s gains have been steady, measurable and noticed by all in his life. His mother cannot believe the changes in her son.
