Today Dr Beck saw Cameron for his normal session and he did something quite amazing. He started the session with the vibrator and he asked Cameron to raise his right hand and touch the vibrator. He kept moving it and challenging Cameron to move with it, which he did with a little difficulty.
He then stayed in one place and asked Cameron to say lalalalalalala. Cameron looked perplexed and couldn't do it. He tried C C C C C and again Cameron looked perplexed. Cameron then lent up and touched Dr Beck's tie and Dr Beck said - say tie. Cameron said in his own way - Tie. They repeated the process playing with it like young children do.
Dr Beck then moved around to Cameron's left side and did the adjustments. He then asked Cameron to say tie. He couldn't do it. As Dr Beck said - it's on the tip of your tongue you want to say it. Cameron was struggling to say the word but just couldn't. Although he continued to play with the tie.
Dr Beck explained that Cameron had been able to say tie when his right hand was being stimulated because that was stimulating the left side of his brain where language is located. When that part of the brain was no longer being stimulated he could no longer make the sound. Pretty amazing!
We've booked in for Cameron's next QEEG on Wednesday. I'm really looking forward to seeing what his brain is doing now, it's all very exciting.
