Testimonials From Real Patients – MeRT for Autism

“Highly recommend! Dr.Patel, Lisa & Melinda were all amazing! Our son, who has autism has highly aggressive behaviors, obsessive behaviors & anxiety. The sessions helped minimize all of the things that we were hopeful for! It was amazing to see the difference in the EEGs that were given every 10 sessions. We would do it again in a heartbeat! Thank you to the team for all of your help and understanding on our journey” – Holly Google Review

“We have just finished our first round of Mert therapy… Gains so far – our 5-year old girl who already has great language capabilities but would often not respond at all to us (low receptivity), started becoming very outspoken about what is on her mind and giving us waaaay more insight into her thought processes and overall just way more responsive. I feel like I’m truly getting to know her for the first time. She has been able to have more patience (previously could not wait for us to finish a conversation to ask her question and would end up exploding), now she counts while waiting for her turn. She also is more easily taking turns with toys when sharing with friends and siblings. Her rigidity of thinking is very much down. She can now go with the flow much more and can be reasoned with if things don’t happen the same way as before or as she expected. She’s less picky with food, for example would previously eat a burger in each of its individual components but now eats it ‘combined’. There’s a heap more but these are the main ones. The only tricky thing has been increased agitation and minor hitting but that has since faded to zero. I think she had a lot of brain activity increase that might have caused her to feel overwhelmed temporarily. Also, should say in addition to us parents, her Nana and uncles were taken aback by her responsiveness to them after our time away for the therapy. She would never say hello or goodbye and now says it all and engaged in back and forth conversation with them too.”

“Before doing MeRT Therapy, I was very skeptical because I didn’t know how it would affect my son. We found out he was diagnosed with ASD at the age of 3. He was starting to regress severely. At the age of 5, he wouldn’t pay attention to his surroundings, wouldn’t react to his name being called, had no sense of awareness, no eye contact, became completely non-verbal, and had minor symptoms of ADHD.

My husband and I did a lot of research before starting and were really nervous to start. However, we can now say that we are glad we took that leap of faith. Our son is now making eye contact when we speak with him, has gotten his first haircut without crying, is starting to be verbal by saying words, repeating words back from his tablet, humming and slightly singing, and it truly feels good to hear his voice again. His speech therapist says she is seeing much more progress compared to before and behavior has gotten way better in school.”

We did 6 weeks of MERT and last session finished last week. Major Gains we have seen:
– speech would be the biggest part, trying to describe things and trying to form sentences, his therapist are shocked how much he is talking now
– sleep, my child slept well prior to Mert, but lots of flipping around middle of the night, now no more flipping, sleeps through the night for 10-12 hours (wow, I know).
– hyperactivity has reduced.
– playing more games, stays in the same game for longer period of time.
– trying more varieties of food,  will ask to try new food.
Good luck everyone
