Hugo Story by his mother
ASD, but within two weeks of TST he was much calmer
Hugo has ASD, I visited Advance on the advice of a friend. The exercises seemed so very gentle but within two weeks of starting the treatment I was suddenly aware that we hadn’t had as many anxiety attacks or tearful episodes. Hugo seemed a lot calmer and more willing to try new things. He has since exhibited new found confidence in a number of areas. Trying new foods, putting his face in the water while swimming, touching furry animals, even riding a pony – all of which would have been impossible to imagine happening two months ago.
Progress spurs me on
Three months into the treatment and I have noticed a physical improvement. I have seen him sit upright for the first time in 4.5years! It has only been for a few minutes each time before he reverts to his ‘slumped’ default position but it is hugely encouraging. All of this progress helps to spur me on (especially when Hugo is less than co-operative) and I am so grateful to have found a technique that seems to be having such a positive impact – the future appears a little brighter.
