This fall, Dr. Don Norman from the Counselor of Education Program at the University of Whitewater, is conducting a pilot study at Healing Hearts using brain mapping. The QEEG can help guide decisions regarding medication, neurological treatment, and counseling. Many clients have used QEEG's in conjunction with our team. As a result of being able to provide a targeted approach, treatment has progressed in amazing rates. We will use this project to scientifically record the progress and reduce time in treatment.
For two years, Healing Hearts has worked closely with The Children's Therapy Network (CTN), an occupational therapy clinic in Madison. The clinics have cross-trained. Healing Hearts has a strong understanding of the sensory system and CTN a better understanding of attachment. We continue to press forward, seeking a deeper understanding of how we can use the sensory system to support therapy and offer coping skills for our clients.
If you are interested in your child becoming a part of this collaborative effort and have private insurance, please call Jennifer Krull at 608-234-5990.
Sensory processing disorders (SPD) are as prevalent in children than autism and ADHD, yet SPD has received far less attention because it has not been recognized as a specific disease.

This is the first time that research has been able to show a biological basis for SPD that sets it apart from other neurodevelopmental disorders.
