Parents pay thousands for ‘brain training’ to help kids with ADHD and autism. But does it work?
Some families say they’ve seen transformative benefits from programs that claim to rewire the brain, but many researchers say the evidence is thin.

The efforts of committed parents, acting as advocates when the tests say one thing but you know in your heart the potential is waiting to be discovered, have been realized. Congrats, MUVA...and best wishes for your son moving forward...may he positively influence others, in whatever course he chooses, to face adversity and conquer misconceptions, just as you have done for him. Peace.

News flash all young boys have ADHD, do not put them on a drug adults illegally abuse. It is an amphetamine salt and the detox is miserable. Go get your kid some exercise.

As far as Autism, don't be sad, they may grow up to be Dr. Sheldon cooper and live a happy life. Get them occupational therapy and equine therapy. It works.
