New Therapy For Autism: Sensory Learning Therapy
About twenty years ago, a child diagnosed with Autism was considered a misfit.
Many of them were institutionalized or told they couldn’t be cured. It’s a condition many doctors don’t quite understand fully, but tonight we’ll share with you some incredible strides made by autistic
children and it’s because of a new therapy available right here in the

It seems only natural – a mother reading a book to her son – but for
Becky Good reading to 4-year-old Connor hasn’t always been this easy.
“Initially you’re told, they are autistic, they’ll always be
autistic, they’re always gonna be that way, there’s nothing you can do.” Becky says, Becky thought Connor was a well adjusted baby until her mother pointed out the obvious one day.
“He really doesn’t make eye contact, did you ever notice he didn’t
look at you when you talk to him?”
Becky didn’t know what to do and sought doctor after doctor.
Then the earth-shattering news: Connor was autistic.
“I think I was devastated,” Becky said.
She was left wondering: What is autism? Why does this happen? How

Connor improved, but not enough to satisfy his mom.
Then, Becky caught wind of something unusual, but promising therapy.
It’s called Sensory Learning.
You can’t get a sense of how incredible sensory learning is until
you see a before and after example of it.
HOME VIDEO: A boy named Eric flaps his hands and walks on his toes.
To Eric, it’s what he has to do to concentrate on the television. He clearly
tunes out everything else around him. He’s in his own world.
Now fast forward 30 days…
Eric after sensory learning therapy is not the same child. He sits
in a chair just like any other child watching TV. No hand flapping or tip-toe
walking – and look at him here, playing with other children, something
autistic children rarely do.
This video was enough for Becky to get her son enrolled in the 30
“Now his eye contact is 100 percent, he looks at you all the time,
he engages with you, he looks at everybody,” Becky says.
Connor even plays with his older brother Nolan, something he just
wouldn’t do before his Sensory Learning therapy.
“This is the final piece of the puzzle, it has made him quote,
unquote normal it’s just remarkable,” Becky says.
