CHANGING MINDS INC
June 22, 2011

My son Tyler has down syndrome. At age 11 years old he had a dental procedure and the sedation caused him to have respertory distress. He had frontal lobe damage. He lost all skills, no eye contact, no means of communcation, lost all academic goals. Was told he was at a 6 month old level and diagnosed with autism. Told there was nothing that could be done, put him in speech and ot therapy. He had been in 40 hours of speech therapy a week for years, minimual progress. I remembered a parent approached me with this protocol for Down Syndrome. After of years of doing what Texas Childrens Hospital told me to do with little progress, I gave the protocol a try. After being on the protocol for 4 months he has gained all skills back, is talking in complete sentenaces, and has great eye contact! Teresa cody is a hero in our family!! After 4 years I was able to hear my son say "I love you, mom"!
