I purchased a Seqex to see how it would help my son who has autism. The change in him was nothing short of a miracle. So much so, I am mow doing a research project for children with Autism. My son, at 5.5 was struggling with basic language both receptive and expressively. He could not generalize anything he was learning. He has been doing ABA therapy since he was 2.5 years old and was making small gains. At 2.5 he was deemed not eligible for the government funded ABA program in the province of Ontario, due to the severity of his diagnosis. That said with the small gains he was making they eventually allowed his ABA to be funded.
Still struggling, I was looking for something. I started him on the ICR therapy in June 2019. He soon started to expand his repertoire of words he could understand and say. He was much more engaged. He was finally able to learn new skills consistently, retain them and more importantly generalize the skills he was learning. My friends and family were blown away by the difference in him. They called it “ the miracle mat” or “ the magic mat”.
Here is one example in November 2019, my son woke up saw snow outside and said to me for the first time ever “it’s snowing”, he then said Christmas, I said you’re right when it snows it is almost Christmas. He then looked and saw the Christmas trees, I had put up and said Christmas trees, I said you’re right that is a Christmas tree. He paused and then said, Santa. I said you’re right when we put the trees up Santa is coming. There was no talk of Xmas or Santa since the year before, as Halloween had just passed. Everything I was saying to him the winter/Christmas before he was retaining, he just could not connect it or verbalize it.
Another example is; I tried for 2 ski seasons, to teach him how to stop and turn on skies, to no avail. After being on the mat for 6 months he was stopping on the first run of the season when he was shown once, how to do it. He was turning after few runs as well. The only thing that changed from one season to the next was the fact that he had been on the mat for 6 months. The ICR mat was able to reduce the inflammation in the areas that were affecting his language acquisition, cognitive and motor skills allowing him to flourish.
He continues to use the mat daily and he is thriving. From a child who could not identify people by name, recognize letters or number to reading, writing, completing math problems all in a year. ICR therapy has changed the quality of his life and that of our family’s. After 4 months of being on the mat, my son went from less than the 1% on the standardize test used in the study to the 4%. He also went up over 2 chronical age groups. Simply unimaginable results in 4 months. I believe the results of the research we are now doing, will help so many children whom have Autism
