You cannot be too old or too young to benefit from this method. The Crossinology® Brain Integration Technique is helpful for people of any age.
When working with pre school-aged children, sometimes I cannot assess (and therefore correct) certain functions because your child may not have reached a particular developmental milestone in their life yet. In this case, I implement a preliminary integration and recommend that you bring your child back within six months to a year or more (depending on the situation), when their development allows for treatment of the remaining areas.
I recommend that you are well-fed and well-hydrated before you arrive for your session. Please bring water and snacks if you’re receiving long or multiple sessions in one day.
When your child is receiving treatment, he/she may play with toys (with no batteries or electricity), read (or be read to), or listen to music during their sessions.
You are always welcome to attend your child’s session. I ask that you plan to stay at least for the first hour of assessment. However, sometimes children behave differently when their parents are present, and that might make the session more challenging. When that occurs, I might suggest that you step outside, take a break and enjoy an hour or more on your own.
Medication does not compromise the method, nor does the method compromise medication. Crossinology® practitioners are not medical doctors and do not make any recommendations regarding prescriptions. Please consult your doctor or psychiatrist with any questions you have regarding your current medication(s) prior to beginning treatment.
This alternative method is beneficial for almost everyone. If you have addiction problems, Crossinology® can help relieve stresses that might be causing your behavior. Keep in mind that our practitioners enable the brain to learn. We do not make the brain learn. Please consult your doctor or psychiatrist with any questions or concerns you may have prior to beginning your integration.
1. If I see a student who is 16 years old and has missed a few years in his/her mathematics knowledge, the student will probably need tutoring to catch up to his/her grade level.
2. If a student is very young, the normal practice of reading and/or spelling in the classroom may be all they need after integration.
3. In some cases, you or your child might still need behavioral therapy or modification. Or your family might need counseling for assistance with family dynamics. If so, I recommend that you see the appropriate professionals for those services.
Nutrition is a factor that is often overlooked with regard to learning disabilities and the effect it has on them.
According to an article in the Boulder Daily Camera, there are numerous national studies that show that children who eat a lunch packed with sugar and caffeine have a hard time concentrating, and thus learning. In addition, studies revealed that when students had a healthy meal, their performance went up and ADD symptoms decreased.
And do not forget the importance of staying hydrated. Make sure you drink plenty of water at all times.
