Mother inspired to raise awareness of autism treatment method
Kerrianne Bouchard felt hopeless when her son Daegan, now 6, was diagnosed in Feburary 2006 with autism.
“You are told, here is the diagnosis and about an early intervention therapy which we chose to do for 15 months, but beyond that you are left hopeless and you wondering what to do? And left wondering what services are out there?” Bouchard recalled.
She added that, “There are many mothers out there who are desperate and are searching for a solution for their child so I do feel there is a need in the community to help.”
“My son didn’t talk until he was four years old so that is very frustrating when a child can’t communicate but after seven months of using a new method he literally woke up one day and started speaking.”
Bouchard a mother of three from West Kelowna got lucky when her son’s physiotherapist happened to be studying the Masgutova Neurosensory Motor Reflex Intergration or MNRI method which helps children with autism.
