In August of this year we were given an opportunity to go to Russia’s clinic “Doctrine” for having repeated two-week-long course of rehabilitation. By the beginning of new day, having renewed strength, on the following day we were going to the clinic. At the same day attended neurologist, speech therapist, performed EEG (electroencephalogram), dopplerography for brain and neck area; after what were assigned to have course of procedures, consisting of: ” Fast For Word” integrated with program Interactive metronome, TKMP (micropolarization) and course of medical gymnastics and massage. Each activity brought us slight improvements, which in general is a springboard for further development. After the course of rehabilitation there was drawn up a list for further improvement of Uldis’ health: course of medication to be taken, regular physical activities, speech therapy, music therapy and consultations by other specialists.
In general, after having two trips to the clinic, we can see great improvements in boy’s development; now he feels calm concerning particular things that previously had made him very nervous, he is able to keep eye contact and to communicate with others, joins role-plays.
