The MeRT℠ Approach
No two people are the same, even with similar symptoms.
It’s important to us that it’s understood we nuture each patient uniquely. Therapy begins by identifying where each individual’s brain is having difficulty communicating. These areas are then specifically nurtured to strengthen their functionality.
Developmental Delay Brain Patterns
Reduced alpha EEG coherence in frontal regions & in connectivity in frontal lobe
A patient with a developmental delay will often have signature indicators that appear in the front 3/4 of the brain. These brainwaves are dominated by a mix of slow (Delta & Theta waves) and high (Beta wave) frequency behavior, whereas a neurotypical patient would usually have one dominant frequency in the alpha band of activity.
By recording the EEG and using that data to create a personalized treatment protocol, we can entrain the front of the brain to be less disorganized and increase whole brain coherence. Often, this results in improved sleep, social behavior and overall better quality of life for the child & the family.
How it helped
She lived in her own little world & we weren’t a part of it
“We suffered very much as a family because we couldn’t be together. My daughter lived in her own little world and we weren’t a part of it… and it hurt, it was extremely painful for our family and for me as her mom knowing that she had no idea who I was.”
Results that “Speak”
66% of individuals experienced speech improvement
In an internal double-blind randomized controlled trial, 66% of individuals with verbal and non-verbal communication difficulties experienced improvement.
70% of individuals improved eye contact behavior
In the same the trial, 70% of individuals with difficulty maintaining eye contact saw improved eye contact behavior.
