Thank you, Dr. Masgutova and your team for enabling so many amazing changes in such a short amount of time!
The 4 MNRI conferences we have attended during the past two years have completely altered Benji's present and future. He is no longer defined by autism and he now moves comfortably in his own skin! His unusual talents and interesting quirks have remained a part of him while his discomfort with the world around him continues to lessen each day.
From the moment we left the first conference, changes began to unfold. On the way home, Benji asked whose idea the “stupid conference” was (at first he was so tactilely defensive that he viewed the techniques as an assault on his body.) That comment represented an enormous change…previously, Benji only spoke about schedules and directions. Suddenly, he could evaluate and discuss his feelings. From there, the changes continued to amaze us. His nervous system has now calmed down enough to be present in the world, evaluate situations, understand people and even fight with his sister! He is poised, graceful and self-confident. He is thriving in a mainstream classroom and has more self-awareness than many adults we know. Thank you, Dr. Masgutova and your team for enabling so many amazing changes in such a sort amount of time!
