Getting Started on your child’s road to recovery!
Neurological Reorganization is an evaluation and treatment process that allows
us to understand why our children are responding the way we do. Parents learn how to
integrate or reintegrate functions in the brain that may never have been there or
that may have been lost due to injury, disease or trauma. Even traumas that occurred
prior to birth can be addressed through our in-depth work.
Functions that are missing that disrupt behavior and learning
often include, the ability to process what the child sees, hears and feels,
the ability to integrate information between the two sides of the brain, the ability
to hear and communicate clearly, to know where ones body is in space, to recognize
emotions and responses in others and respond appropriates.
Neurological Reorganization considers these issues and much more, helping your
child get back on a solid path to recovery.
If medication would consistently work without side effects, parents
might consider the effort put into recovery as ‘too much’.
Neurological Reorganization asks families to assist their child’s growth for
about two years for most recovery programs. Parents whose children have graduated
from Neurological Reorganization state things like:
“With the changes we have seen, we have zero regrets for the time spent doing NR. It has paid it’s off tenfold!”
(K.G, full statement on file)
Neurological Reorganization is a program designed to be done in the home. It is through the daily intensity, frequency and duration of the work that we can achieve the kinds of successes that you read about on this website.
If you feel drawn to our approach, contact us. We welcome email discussions that will help get you started. We want you to deeply understand our approach before you begin a daily program and to that end we ask you to read any articles that you find relevant in our Resources section. We also ask you to either attend a lecture about the work or to watch a video lecture that will soon be available on the home page of this website. Contact Bette Lamont or check in on the Bette’s Travel Schedule link at the bottom of the Home page.
At your initial appointment your Neurological Reorganization Practitioner evaluates your child’s vision, touch, hearing, movement, language, and hand function to establish your child’s level of proficiency. These results identify the developmental stage at which the initial injury or delay occurred and thus the point at which the Neurological Reorganization program must begin.
To find out about when Bette Lamont will be doing evaluations in your area , consult the Where’s Bette? calendar.
Bette Lamont travels to see clients in Florida, Southern California, Michigan, Minnesota, and is
home based in Western Washington. If you choose to meet Bette in any of these locations, please
plan to return every 3 – 4 months for reassessments.
Prepare to do 45 minutes to an hour a day of work for the average child. This work is done 7 days a week, and reassessments will give you the opportunity to observe the tremendous growth arising from the work and as well to change the program to meet the child’s changing needs.
The length of a Neurological Reorganization program, that is the time it takes to correct all sensory and motor dysfunctions underlying the child’s challenges, can be two years if there is no history of emotional trauma. Children who have had early, or Developmental Trauma Disorder, such as children who have been adopted, can take 3 years to complete the program. It is important to recognize that each brain is a universe unto itself, changes in its own patterns and at its own speed. For that reason we can only speak of the average time a child will take to complete the work.
