Â

Mark told me that the best outcome would be with numerous sessions over quite a few months " twice weekly. He told me that for the first 5 weeks Sam's behaviour would be slightly better for short periods after each session, but that I would feel like he was "building to something. Mark said that in the 6th week Sam would have an outburst to end all outbursts (yes " it definitely was!!!) and after that the violence should subside and become extinct quite quickly. That giant, jaw-dropping, heart-wrenching last tantrum was the last Sam has ever had!

Â

Together Mark and Sam worked on the many behaviours that needed changing " sleep patterns, obsession with his sister, verbalisation difficulties " even down to the stress dermatitis that he's suffered since he was an infant and which every doctor and paediatrician told me was a characteristic of Asperger's Syndrome, but did nothing about. One session of neuro and his dermatitis was gone each time. We were able to heavily reduce Sam's medication through neuro as well.

The key to success is remembering that every piece of information you can give the Therapist about the changes in your child's behaviour over the duration of the treatment is relevant. Everything counts, and helps the Therapist to set the parameters/levels for training.
