Brigitte Shipman

Brigitte shares her inspiring story of how she followed her own intuition in deciding to work with a neurologist with a not-so-stellar reputation in her small town. 

Though considered unconventional (and inconclusive to this day), Block Therapy with this neurologist was worth a shot to try since it wasn’t going to hurt her son Joseph. It ended up helping Joseph with understanding of directions, processing of the language, and so much more. Brigitte shares what she monitored and recorded in her journal. 

Brigitte also shares the story of how she pleaded with the Fast Forward Therapy founders to expand the program so mothers in the rural areas can use this program with their children. 6 Months later, they offered the software program people could use at home. Brigitte started administering Fast Forward Therapy at home with the new software and it greatly improved Joseph’s speech, focus, and social interaction with others.

Block Therapy: To remind when we did this therapy with Joseph it was experimental. The only resource we had at that time was a Neurologist who did brain injury research. There is no exact method that we did that I could find a website for this therapy. This is recent research to take a look at today: Neuroptimize-Reward, Strengthen, Rebuild- neuroptimizeco.com
