Help to unlock Dallas mind with brain mapping

Our journey begin when Dallas was just a baby, over time we started noticing that he was not hitting certain mile stones like other children his age. He lacked eye contact, did not respond to his name, we never got to hear the words mama or da da etc. So when we went to a routine well visit at 24 months we were advised to have an psychological assessment done for clarity. In which he was diagnosed with severe Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Autism is most known as a developmental disability as well as social and communication behavioral challenges dependent upon each child. For Dallas he is nonverbal with little communication. His delay in cognitive development causes him to fall short of some basic human needs. Such as understanding the importance of safety in its entirety as well as how to be social and communicate in ways that is understood amicably by his peers and others. However once we received his diagnosis we Immediately put him in Speech therapy, Occupational  therapy and applied behavioral analysis when it became available to him. These resources we currently utilize to help Dallas learn and grow throughout his life. If you do not know Dallas outside his diagnosis you will find an intuitive, fun, loving, energetic and overall happy 6 year old who love, loves, loves Disney movies and his new favorite the movie Cars. He is very good about memorizing each intricate part that he favors in the movie, which is really amazing to see considering his diagnosis. But his recent behavioral challenge he’s facing now has caused him many sleepless nights of uncontrollable laughing for approximately 3-4 hours non stop. Seeing this occur multiple times we know something is going on with him. So after speaking to different people for helpful tips and advice, I was pointed in the direction of getting Dallas an EEG done by a close friend. An EEG is an statistical probability brain mapping that can provide a much more accurate neurological diagnosis that can triangulate the source of any abnormalities in the brain, like brain seizures. So his Dr referred us to a place called Carolinas Biofeedback clinic located in Pineville NC where they do different services that includes an EEG. In which a representative at the clinic informed us they do not accept any insurances, it is self pay upon each visit and seek reimbursement after, and in our case his insurance does not cover those services at all. The first initial visit is 850 and 110 for every visit after, up to 30-60 visits for treatment that can vary. If you would like to help us get the first initial brain mapping done that can provide an accurate diagnosis for Dallas giving us answers to this uncontrollable laughing and other behaviors we’d greatly appreciate it. Down below is the link to the Biobrainfeedback clinic as well as  informational video on brain mapping. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Sharell & Darrin
