When Monica adopted 6-year-old Camden, he was terrified she’d abandon him. She couldn’t leave his side, even to use the restroom, without Camden panicking. He hated school due to his fear that Monica wouldn’t pick him up. Camden had terrible psychosomatic migraine headaches that led to days full of just vomiting or sleeping. And that’s just the beginning of the effects he battled as a result of early abuse and neglect.
After Camden started biofeedback and neurofeedback at IACD—therapies that get rid of trauma triggers and calm the brain—he felt the effects within weeks. His headaches went away. When Monica picked him up from school one day he told her, “This is the first time I wasn’t afraid you wouldn’t pick me up.”
Now that Camden’s brain feels calmer, he can focus on therapy and other services from IACD. You can help more kids like Camden get better faster and return to their “forever families”.
With your help, we can buy biofeedback equipment—audio therapy that quickly gets rid of a child’s scary trauma triggers—for all of our therapeutic treatment homes and offices. Please give the “gift of calm” to kids in 2018.
