This is an essay that was recently written by a student I worked with about 7 years ago. His name is Zack.
On my slide show you'll notice two pictures of Maximus. The first one (in the red shirt with his name in clay letters) was taken early in his program (age 10). Notice how his eyes aren't focused on the camera. He asked a constant borage of questions, but never really understood the answers. Notice the other picture of Maximus in the blue shirt with the model of "right". He's now age 11. In that year he worked with me, he advanced close to 5 years in development. He is now participating more fully in life.
Kelsey, age 22, came to see me along with her mother. Kelsey was having melt downs almost every day. Trips out of her home were anxiety ridden. She was on a lot of medicine just to keep her safe. After about 2 months of working with her using the Davis Autism Approach methods including using the NOIT device, she rarely has meltdowns. She can go outside of her home without mom and be far less anxious. When working with Kelsey the other day, Mom exclaimed that she has learned more from these methods in 2 months than she has in her whole 12 years of schooling! This work is truly amazing!!
