Everything mentioned in this blog is something I feel has played an important role in Ryan’s progress. However, of all the therapies and alternative treatments we tried or looked into, there are 3 that BY FAR yielded the most significant results.
Aside from reading the books and learning more about Apraxia, I’m convinced these 3 simple things should be the FIRST considerations when it comes to helping our kids achieve their best. For us, they made all the difference in the world.
If your child is a responder to these (and the majority are), it could vastly change the amount of therapies required (speech, OT, alternative), the effort needed for special diets (GFCFSF, etc), and may even stop the worry-induced ulcer that’s started developing in your stomach.
1. Fish oils: Within one week of taking these we saw an immediate surge in Ryan’s ability to mimmick and communicate. But BEWARE, all fish oils are not created equal. Click here for background on why these are important, our experience with using them and suggestions on dosage. You can also check out my “research/articles” page for supporting research and articles.
2. P.R.O.M.P.T Therapy: Soon after we started fish oils, we found a wonderful PROMPT therapist in our area. PROMPT is a speech therapy method that yields significant results, typically in a shorter amount of time. Many people use a mixture of PROMPT and Kaufman Therapies (and many more), but I am positive for us (and for so many other’s whom I’ve spoken with) that it was a main ingredient in Ryan’s treatment plan.

3. Nutriiveda: OH MY GOODNESS – I can never say enough about this supplement. This all-natural, whole food supplement that contains no gluten, casein, caffeine, fat or sodium and has truly changed the game for Ryan and so many others. It’s as if Nutriiveda is unlocking these kids from their own bodies and for Ryan, I believe it’s healing him – his stomach issues and potentially so much more. If you check nothing else out on this page, check out this product at www.originalnv.com It will be worth your time.
