This is a charity, that is literally changing the lives of the children and adults it comes in contact with. I first was introduced to CMF while helping out with their first Butterfly Flutterby. Four months later my granddaughter was born with Ds. We had no warning at all that she would have this, however knowing Teresa and the research she had done and the results that were undeniable, my daughter immediately put my granddaughter on the protocol at age 4 months. She is now almost 2 and is amazing her therapists, doctors and everyone that comes into contact with her. Sitting on her own at 5 months, crawling on all fours at 12 months, walking at 18 months, its just all too amazing the receptive language she has. This is truly wonderful and I am blessed to have met Teresa Cody.
My fourth child, Parker, has been on the protocol since he was 14 months old. The changes are noticeable by all he meets. He is an active, engaged, inquisitive, verbal 2 yr old thanks to the protocol. The foundation gives accurate, medical information that can be easily shared with the physicians. All of the recommendations are linked to medical documents/articles explaining the science behind each piece. All of my son's physicians were in support of the protocol and they could not believe they had not heard of this progress sooner. Parker is different than other children his age with DS, there is not one parent or new physician that meets him that does not ask me, "what are you doing differently?" I'm excited to be able to share our successes and point them to new hope for their children. When we first learned of our son's dx we were told there was "nothing we could do," and we would not "know what he could do until he was older." We learned that simply isn't the case and we feel blessed to have been introduced to CMF at such an early age. Now, our goal is to help other parents know that there are ways to help improve cognitive function and prevent decline!
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"!
