And sure enough, this child continued to do better. Self-stim behaviors
improved, behavior began to improve. He was still somewhat impulsive, still somewhat
hyper. His attendance at school kept getting better. Now, because I felt he was doing well
I mean trust me, there are many of you parents out there who would have taken this
child in October of 1997 and said you would be happy with how he was doing. He was in a
regular class, but with certain problems there. - It was very easy to tell the parents
that he was still not at his best.
He was still spacey at times; he was still zoney
at times. So we did a little more adjusting. I put him back on Zovirax. This time he
started to improve on it. This goes along with the fact that if the body is totally
stressed and totally off, you may sometimes not even see what you are accomplishing
therapeutically. So, in this case I went back and the mother could tell that it was
starting to help. He started waking up rested.
At times he seemed bored. And this is a very interesting point. Some of
your kids will really misbehave in school. And what Ive had the pleasure of seeing
is that when theyre working cognitively, theyre bored. If we were being told
the same thing over and over again, and we already knew it, what would we do? I had that
same 6 year old who wrote to his parents, "Thank you. I feel better.", get in
big trouble at school one day. His parents asked why, and he typed, "Im bored.
Give me something more to do". What does that say to you guys?
