The latest from the Adairs

Reading is one of our therapy assignments. While we read over the words and talk about the vocabulary I also give her the trigeminal stimulation on her head. That's where I press on firmly but gently on top of her head with my fingers and down towards her ears for 2 minutes and then I lightly brush my fingers on her head down to her ears for 2 minutes more. We have to do this trigeminal stimulation twice a day. It is supposed to awaken the nerves on and around her ears.
