I am so tired but I have to write about today. Roki had his first day at the Institute For The Achievement of Human Potential (IAHP). We watched in amazement as Roki was tested on his reading words, of course he cannot say them but he looked at the one that was being called out. He did this 6 times in a row, that means, Roki can read. He has learnt to read in the seven weeks we have been kneeling in front of him flashing those words over and over again. Yay Roki! He had two victories on his profile since we started the program, seeing victory and hearing victory. What does that mean? It means that Roki’s injury in the cortex area of his brain is showing improvements, rapidly. His neurological growth rate was estimated at 499% since we have been doing the program on him. This means he has started the process of catching up.
Whilst cooking Dave blurts out that this was the most important day of Roki’s life. He is right. Today he was diagnosed properly by people who have been working with brain injured children for decades. In the seven weeks we have been having stem cells and working hard on Roki’s program his diagnosis went from profound to moderate. That means he skipped one whole level being severe. It was nice to hear someone say those words. It was nice to hear someone congratulate you on all the hard work.
Profound to moderate. Not reading to reading. Not hearing properly to pretty good hearing. An astonishing neurological growth rate. Pretty good diagnosis considering we were told Roki will not live long let alone do anything. I guess it’s a pretty important day. Go Roki! Catch up my boy!
