Autism – High Functioning

Autism

 

Did another Phase 2 Assessment with a mum today – her son is 10yrs old turning 11 later this year so he’s not young per say and has a diagnosis of High Functioning Autism. And the change in him with the Foundation Statement has been phenomenal; I actually had a lump in my throat as Mum was describing the fact that she now has her family back and her boy.

 

He also sits bolt upright during the process, eyes wide open and says “I know you love me!” every night, then lays down and continues sleeping.

 

The School have noted that from a boy who was angry, withdrawn and unable to cope with aspects of school i.e. Assembly and gym – He was given an award for his progress, giving a talk to his Class, taking part in gym, joining his class at Assembly… it just goes on…

“His anxiety levels have reduced”

 

“J’ overall energy has increased. He is more vibrant in mornings and wants to come and spend time with me. He is more receptive and calmer. His anxiety levels have reduced and environment at home is also much better.

 

Mother ‘S’ has said: ‘J’ agitation and aggression is so much lesser. He makes more of an effort to talk and started using words which he didn’t earlier. Also he is very well tuned to his environment now.

 

He has also grasped the ability to work independently. When she went for a psychologist check-up she was told he doesn’t have Autism but now is on Asperger’s spectrum as he was getting better and better.”

Much more Peaceful

 

“My 10 year old son has Autism and he is highly anxious. You have helped us with a program to provide my son with an internal peace and strength to cope with life’s daily stresses.  

 

For kids with Autism, these typical stresses are magnified and almost unbearable over many contexts. We began with a child who was constantly afraid, fragile, and often violent and in a flight/fight mode. 

 

As the Goulding Process – SleepTalk® program has progressed months later, we have a child whom is content, will in to adapt, more self-confidence, more self-secure and, most importantly, happy.  I would highly recommend this program as it has benefited the entire family. We are all in a good place! Thank you.”

Less Fighting, Less stress

 

“ The parent indicated that ‘S’ responded well to The Goulding Process – SleepTalk®. Mom was doing the Foundation consistently every night; dad was not willing to participate in the process.

 

Within 4 weeks, mom noticed a decrease in the frequency, severity, and duration of ‘S’ outbursts.  Bedtimes becoming easier, Mom was feeling less stressed and there was less fighting between the girls

Amazing for  Special Needs. 

 

Feedback: “My learning from this case experience is that The Goulding Process – SleepTalk® is so amazing and beneficial for children with special needs.

 

This nightly process can help an autistic child build up his compassion and self-discipline.  It also changes the parents’ expectations and attitude towards their children, leading to more positive parenting.”

Many Improvements

 

Parent feedback: “The Mother was overall satisfied with the The Goulding Process – SleepTalk®  seeing many improvements in her daughter over the past 3 months.

 

Most significant was her daughter able to express her love to the Mother verbally.  ‘Z’ will also spontaneously hug her Mother and this makes the Mother extremely happy and has improved in her physical ability.  The Mother said ‘Z’ is basically a gentle girl and her level of confidence has definitely improved. 

 

‘Z’ has also improved in her level of concentration as reported by the teachers and ‘Z’ has demonstrated more confidence when striking a conversation with adults and peers.  She is more cooperative and flexible now even if it is not the usual routine for some days and her ability to deal with issues is much better.

 

The Mother commented that she was glad that Z has the ability to express ‘No’ to situations that she doesn’t want to be part of  (as opposed to previously compliant character).  

 

The parents have noted about her changes in dealing with her stress systems and sensory overload.  She managed to remain calm when another autistic child suddenly hit her unexpectedly.

 

‘Z’ was also able to verbalise her thoughts to her parents that she had enough and would like to go back home instead of having a meltdown. Overall, the process was carried out consistently every night except for missing a few nights when ‘Z’ was staying at grandparent’s house.

 

Conclusion: My learning from this case experience is that The Goulding Process- SleepTalk® only takes a few minutes nightly to help the special needs child develop emotional resilience to cope with the outside world.

 

It amazed me to see an autistic child to have the confidence to say “No” and with good understanding of why she wants to say that.”

Autism – Mild high functioning

Dear Beryl,

it was wonderful to meet you last week at ‘The Change Initiative’ for the ‘Sleep Talk’ workshop in Dubai. I found the workshop hugely interesting and my husband and I have been following the foundation programme for a week now.

 

As well as finding the process very special and very healing (particularly for me), we have noticed some major changes in our son already. He has stayed in his own bed every night since we began, except for once and that time it was different.

 

Instead of bursting into our bedroom in a crazed panic, he came in and asked very calmly and quietly for a kiss, after which he went straight back to bed.

 

We have also noticed him much more independent when he is in a social setting or out and about with us, his language is more fluid and he’s not getting so mixed up with the third person when he talks about himself, his teacher also reports him as calmer and more focused at school.

 

Thank you for giving us and our son this truly incredible gift. ‘S’ was diagnosed with mild high functioning autism two years ago and in that time he has been through therapy, been prodded and poked, tested and assessed to his and our limit as parents who adore him.

 

Finally we have found a non-invasive way to allow him to be the best he can be. Thank you.

Spectrum Autism

On the Spectrum –  Autism

Just touched base with one of the two families I am working with on the ‘Foundation”. Mom has two daughters, the 10 year old has Spectrum Autism.

Mom said that she knows her daughter is getting better as she is getting older, but she had noted improvements on several fronts in just the 6 weeks of doing the programme!

The biggest is in mood states/self-esteem, better attitude in the morning to going to school, fewer outbursts when not having things go her way.

The outbursts she has last shorter time, overall calmer when having to transition from one task/situation to another, fewer outbursts with yelling in response to frustration, and yelling stops sooner, and overall more cooperative when asked to do something.

This is even more striking since the mom was seriously ill for two weeks of the 6 weeks, so the Goulding Process – SleepTalk was not consistent some of that time. Furthermore, dad has addiction issues and is not home most of the time, and mom has been unable so far to get dad to record the foundation message for the daughter. Mom is really pleased with the programme.

Autistic Spectrum

“Initially ‘J’ was just having problems at day care. When the parents came to see me to learn The Goulding Process- SleepTalk® they had just moved her to a new school. It had been suggested to the parents that they should take her to see a child psychologist, which they did and were then told that she ‘might’ be on the autistic spectrum.

At that time she was having significant challenges with anger and having uncontrollable tantrums. Mom and dad felt helpless and fearful that there might be something really wrong and were waiting on an appointment with an occupational therapist. While with the psychologist ‘J’ diagnosis was given to the parents while she was in the room!

Within the first two weeks of starting The Goulding Process – SleepTalk® there was significant abreaction, the parents recall it definitely got worse before it got better. But this just lasted a few days. Something that we noticed happened with ‘J’ each time we introduced ‘any’ new suggestion to the process.

And although we noticed feedback in the form of increased affection – especially with Mom and overall being happier we decided to continue the foundation process for almost two months before we moved to a primary area of need. 

By the time we moved to the first primary area of need ‘J’ was already generally calmer and having less frequent tantrums. Her parents have done a wonderful job of being consistent and continuing the process, something that I have found to be one of the biggest challenges with parents after the first two months.

In the last year I have seen the parents six times and each time we add to or adjust our suggestions to help with a variety of issues. Today the parents, who have just had another child report that they feel if they had not found The Goulding Process- SleepTalk® their daughter would not be the normal, happy child she is today.”

I have had another positive outcome from a Mum with an autistic child, received a note on the weekend indicating how much happier he is and even giving her cuddles spontaneously which he has never done before, the Mum is wrapped with the process.

Yesterday, I received great news regarding the child with autism, they have (through appropriate channels) been able to reduce the boy’s medication, he has had a real turn around because of the use of SleepTalk, so much so, the Grandparent, stood up and provided a testimonial yesterday at my talk. It is just wonderful.

‘Moderate Autism’. The parents have been consistently delivering SleepTalk® and have found that over the last week he has been going to sleep later and later. He stays in his bed which isn’t a major problem; however he can still be awake up to 2 hours after they have put him to bed. As he has never been a great sleeper his parents are not concerned, but I have felt that this may be part of his reaction to the process.

I have explained that the ‘Foundation’ statements need to be continued until the ‘sub-conscious’ mind has had time to assimilate and accept these new positive suggestions with re-enforcement throughout the daytime. Eventually the positive suggestions of the ‘Foundation’ will become so much stronger than the previously accepted negative ones. Just repeat “deep asleep – deep asleep” as they are putting him to bed and to reinforce they love him and that he is safe.”

This video shows an interview with Joane Goulding, the developer of the Goulding SleepTalk Process, and a Sleeptalk Consultant (Has) who explains the dramatic results achieved using the process with two children and their parents.

 

Autism

‘S’ has been diagnosed with Autism as well as a learning disability, lower end IQ and some sight, hearing and digestive issues. His parents are highly motivated to get as much assistance and support as possible and very keen to use SleepTalk® and committed to the process.

Initially during the first week, Mum called to say she was concerned that ‘S’ was waking up during the night and wanting to “be with Mummy” which was concerning her. Once advised that this was a result of the new beliefs being introduced, she was reassured.

Generally there was overall improvement as shown by the supporting ‘Where does my child stand now’ casse history documentation. Both parents were very happy with the results. What they most noticed was that ‘S’ began understanding humour that had previously gone over his head and began making jokes that were quite complex.

He also became more assertive and confident, particularly at kinder and his energy levels in the morning were much higher. Overall, his general happiness and wellbeing increased. They will continue with the SleepTalk® on a maintenance basis and are very pleased with the results.

Autistic spectrum

Thank you for your call today Joane, I have only just got home. Everything is going well. ‘C’ is doing fantastic and is very happy and positive which is great. ‘N’ is also doing well and he has said three new words since we saw you one of which was his sisters name.

This made me so happy and also wonder if this may be due to the inclusion of her in his reading.  He is also able to sit down for a bit longer to focus on things which is great. Looking forward to seeing you next week lots of positive things to tell you.

 

 

I have been using the foundation statements since Feb and have definitely noticed a more positive, happier demeanor from my 14-year old high functioning autistic son.  

Is it possible to achieve a higher level of empathy and awareness social behavior for my son at the next level? He is very reserved and I would love for him to say “hi” to people at church with a smile.

I’ve seen remarkable progress with my Autistic son. I am ready for phase 2 to address his other concerns.  Can you send me the email addresses or contact information for a consultant in California?
