CIAN by his Mother
Genetic Disorder and Epilepsy
At six weeks old Cian was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder. While doctors were uncertain exactly how the disorder would manifest, they were sure that Cian would have global developmental problems. Within the first year Cian developed severe epilepsy, was unable to eat orally and suffered from reflux, he did not smile or appear interested in his surroundings.
Our sons’ life revolved around prolonged stays in hospital and he was quite heavily medicated, he was very weak and thin, making any sound or moving his limbs seemed impossibly effortful.
TST brought hope
We had tried every traditional mainstream medical solution but with little positive impact. At 23 months we stumbled upon an article that introduced us to the “Scotson Technique” (TST). So we made the long trip to the Advance Centre eager to hear what Linda had to say. The therapy gave us new hope. Within the first week Cian started to cry, something he never had the energy or ability to do before. Our son was also brighter and more alert.
Now he takes pleasure in life
Two years later and we have made amazing progress; Cian is no longer heavily medicated, he has developed physically and mentally beyond our doctors expectations. Cian is much healthier and stronger, he looks robust compared with his former self and he now has the strength and turns his head purposefully to take an interest in what is going on. He moves all his limbs freely. Cian is so much happier, he takes pleasure in his life and above all he now often smiles to let us know how good things are becoming.
With TST children fulfill their potential
The Scotson Technique is allowing Cian to develop to the best of his ability. In short the therapy makes sure the children fulfill their potential.
We will continue to invest the time and energy in TST and look forward with optimism to seeing more and more of Cian’s new abilities as they emerge.
