151: How Brain Harmony is Improving Autism & Sensory Disorders

I am here with Carol Garner-Houston, a pediatric occupational therapist with 22 years of experience in treating childhood disorders without pharmaceuticals. She co-founded an incredible company called Brain Harmony, which specializes in up and coming technology that improves the brain’s neuroplasticity, or ability to change, through the experienced hands of occupational therapists. Brain Harmony Brain Harmony has provided life-changing interventions for children with sensory and auditory processing disorders in their clinics, in schools, and in homes nationwide, and they even can work with clients long distance. At the core of their approach is a low-resistance technique (translation: painless and not scary to kids) that delivers dramatic results just through sound waves that retrain and work the brain in very specific ways. The results? Life-changing!
