Patient Testimonials

matiasMatias Castro Suarez, was born on March 24 of 2011 at 26 weeks of gestation. Matias’ weight was 780 grs and length 34 cm. At the time he was born mechanical ventilation was required for 2 months. After the mechanical ventilation was stopped Matias was oxygen dependent until 7 months of age. Matias had eye surgery due to retinal detachment. He also required hospitalization due to swallowing difficulties. Currently, Matias is a healthy kid without signs of prematurity. He is attending daycare and is able to learn basic colors and numbers. He interacts well with other kids and follows directions well. Matias is presenting age appropriate development, enjoys going to the ocean, singing, dancing, running, jumping including rough games with his brother, Tomas.
We believe that  Matias success was the results  of the compromise from us performing cangureada during his firsts months of life. After the cangureada we followed the therapy instructions from  Dr. Maria Teresa Ferrer who has been with us step by step in the process as well as our faith in God.

consultationWe learned so much about Megan. We were given specific information about Megan and her brain, what issues she is having that are keeping her from progressing and how to fix it. It was intense but very insightful and hands on. We are blessed to have met Maria Ferrer she is so passionate about helping kids. She has taught us so much but in the same sense we realize how much help she still needs to get where she needs to be. She responded very well to her treatment and we are going to continue to carry out this plan that Maria recommended. We are going to build up her core muscles and help her integrate her reflexes. Her muscles were tested and all of her muscles are normal functioning except her core she just needs her brain trained on how to use them appropriately. We will be using a bunch of techniques in her treatment as well as theratog. It’s a suit designed to help her strengthen her core. She was amazing in it , she sat by her self straight up on the floor and a bench. We did some visual training as well. Can’t wait to get started on all of the new things we will do with her. It was well worth the trip!
