Anyone gone and done brain based therapy?? this is done by a chiropractor who specializes in neurology. What they claim is Sam has a right brain weakness and primitive reflexes that should have gone away at about 1 year old. They will use interactive metronome, vibration therapy, theraputic exercise, electronic muscle stimulation, some adjustments, eyelight treatment, and some blood and stoool tests for parasites, yeast egg sensitivity, T&B lymphocytes, a comprehensive metabolic panel and a digestive DNA test...all this is about 7K out of pocket, so I need to know if anyone has done any of this with and good/bad results.

Mom to Sam, 11..with autism and IDIC15...also LOTS of food allergies..soy, wheat, peanut, corn, milk, buckwheat, pea, hazlenut, sesame, and a few others....

We haven't done it personally, but I know several families that have, with very good results. There's a book that they have recommended that walks you through theraputic techniques to help stimulate the side of the brain that's underdeveloped, but it's targeted for kids ages 4-12ish and ds is only 2.5. The book also works on the assumption that your child is at least somewhat verbal (ds isn't), and is capable of cooperating with the evaluation portion lol.
