What Parents are Saying
We love hearing success stories from parents who have seen growth in their children with Brain Sprints – an extension of Little Giant Steps. Do you have a success you want to share?
“I am writing to you today to tell you about my experience with Little Giant Steps. I brought my son to you when he was in first grade because the private school he attended told me that if I didn’t put him on medication for ADHD they would expel him from the school. I had recently picked up a brochure about your program and so I scheduled an appointment with you instead. That was the best decision that I ever made for my son. We began the therapy and within as little as two weeks I saw a dramatic improvement. The principal of the school also told me that he saw a, “night and day difference”, in my son. He told me to keep doing whatever I was doing. We continued the therapy for about 4 years and over that time I saw amazing changes in my son’s behavior. The changes were permanent not just a masking of symptoms as are the medications. To this day my son is calm and one cannot even tell that he ever had ADHD. I am so thankful that we did not have to put my son on the medication because all medications have side effects and consequences. The neuro-developmental program has no side effects and no negative consequences. I have told so many people about this program because I believe in it so much. My son believes as well. He has thanked me many times for not putting him on the medication and for using your program instead. He is now 18 years old and your program changed his life. “
This has been a great week for “B”. Tuesday was a very momentous day! “B” never sings, whistles, or hums complete songs. Usually he picks about 10 notes/words or less and repeats the endlessly. Last night while listening to Mozart, “B” started whistling along with Eine Kleine Nacht Musik! Today, “B” has been whistling the Star-Spangled Banner! It is true that he has been whistling it all day, but we are very, very happy that he has chosen to complete a song and not just a few notes! What a happy day!
He continued humming and whistling the National Antheminto today, and he is diligently trying to learn the words. He almost has it!
Another amazing thing happened this week. “B” actually asked me if he could start doing school work again! I did not ever imagine this would happen. I gave “B” a clean piece of paper and pencil. Next, I told him I would set the timer for 5 minutes. During that time, he was to write as much as he possibly could about why he is excited about our upcoming trip.
When I started the timer, “B” immediately began to write. No whining. No complaining. No asking why he had to write. This was a first! In addition, he actually wrote three sentences. He spelled words correctly which he had never been able to spell before. It was amazing! I pointed out all the positive improvements about his writing and he genuinely smiled! I told him that this kind of improvement seems to indicate to me that we will be able to start doing one school subject very soon. I would appreciate your suggestions about this.
Oh, and “B” went the entire week without having to suffer the consequences in our behavior program!
I thank you with all my heart!
“When I was asked to use one word to describe our experience with Little Giant Steps, I said, “life-changing!” When we first met Jan, Jonathan was really struggling in his school work. As a 3rd grader, he couldn’t read well, couldn’t spell anything, and was forgetting his alphabet. He could hardly copy from the white board and his writing was not smooth and legible. Emotionally, he was insecure, shy and very down about himself. He hated school work and didn’t want to play with his 3 other brothers. As a home school mom, I tried to help him, but nothing worked.
When we first started the Little Giant Steps program, I was overwhelmed with all that needed to be worked on. The first 8 months, we saw little improvement, but he was making progress. After this, I made therapy the number one priority. We got up at 6:00 a.m. to do chores, etc. and started doing LGS activities at 7:30. That’s when we started to see big changes. In our excitement, we added two of our other boys to the progam.
After two years of hard work and determination, Jonathan is finally a different person. He is in the 6th grade and reading on an 8th grade level and loves to read! He is spelling and remembering. School is enjoyable now and he does very well. He can copy from the board. He is making straight A’s in 7th grade math and really likes it. He now laughs and plays games with his brothers and friends. He has become outgoing and confident.”
“Our son came up two years academically in 3 months. The biggest indicator of progress to me has been that he is reading for pleasure! His problems are quite minor compared to what many families are dealing with, we were just frustrated at the lack of progress in several areas and felt like we needed an outside viewpoint.”
“I am so thankful and grateful to be able to share this approach with others. It is so strange to me that so many of my friends have children with issues that can be helped by the neurodevelopmental approach. It was such an answer to prayer for us that I just can’t help but share your program with others when I see them struggling. I am praying that the Lord will continue to use my family to reach others that feel hopeless and that are looking for an answer. The neurodevelopmental approach makes more sense than anything else out there. All of the testimonies tell me that this works. I will continue to share this approach whenever the Lord gives me the opportunity.
The icing on the cake is that you are Christians. When I first began researching for an answer to our problems, I prayed that the Lord would show me where to get help and that the people would be coming from a Christian view. I did not want to deal with anybody that would give me a bunch of mumbo-jumbo. What a blessing you all have been to my family! We appreciate your dedication in helping us more than you will ever know!”
I decided today to try and start again to read Ethan the Story of the World. This is a good curriculum for history. Up until now, Ethan could never understand what I read. Seriously, I would read two sentences and ask him details about the two sentences and he literally couldn’t process it to answer any of my questions. So, of course didn’t continue reading it. Today when I read it to him, he not only could understand it, answer questions about some detail but we finished a section. We then discussed the section and he did an activity about it! I can’t believe it!!!!!! I now see soon I can teach him topics pertaining to actual curriculum ❤️❤️❤️ literally Praise to God!!!
