The majority of our clients and their families love to share stories of how this therapy has made a difference for their child! And we are especially grateful anytime we receive a word-of-mouth referral.
Though life is always busy, and as a special needs parent yourself, you can probably understand why the task of making time to write a review can fall to the bottom of your priority list!
Below is a growing compilation of the reviews and testimonials when they do make it onto some kind of written format.
Our Latest Inspiring Stories
Jacob completed his 3-month therapy program with MC4K in the fall of 2015. At 10 years old, he was struggling in school even with the many educational supports in place through his IEP. His communication was basically limited to short answers to direct questions. The ease of back and forth conversation and humor with his family and friends was something his parents still hoped for, but had not seen.
At the time his program completed, his parents and teachers were noticing mild, but exciting improvements in Jacob’s social awareness and his communication. He then continued to flourish with only the therapies he was receiving in school. Now, six years later, Jacob’s father was compelled to call our founder back to report the dramatic change in his son’s life.
At the end of 2021 Jacob’s father shared that after microcurrent therapy his son’s developmental gains started growing exponentially! By the beginning of Jacob’s junior year in high school, he had met and exceeded IEP goals, and then graduated from the special education program, and was now successful in school without any form of support or additional therapy. He has obtained his driver’s license, has many friendships, and keeps his family laughing with his sarcastic sense of humor. Proudly, his father said “Most people can’t even tell he is Autistic anymore. And it is all because of your therapy!”
While we appreciate that sentiment, we know progress requires hard work from a variety sources. So, as much as we would like to, we cannot take ALL the credit! However just like in Jacob’s story, microcurrent therapy can create an opportunity for significant growth to happen.
In our current group of kids who are about half-way through their 12-week program, we have a 4 year old little girl who is making leaps and bounds in her expressive language!
When I met Khalilah (Kah-lee-lah) 6 weeks ago she had maybe 10 words that she would use regularly. However she has already started repeating more things that she hears her sister and parents say, as well as using new words to functionally reference items, videos, activities she is interested in! She has just recently been assigned her speech therapist and weekly Speech sessions will begin soon. Her parents and I are very excited to see how much faster her expressive language will progress now that she will be receiving both microcurrent and speech therapy.
I often use examples like this to explain to interested parents how microcurrent therapy works. “Microcurrent will not teach your child language, but it will help the brain get into an open, present, ready-to-learn state more often. At that point your child will be prepared to learn more language, which is why coupling microcurrent with other therapies – like Speech – is so imperative.”
