When Linda Scotson's son, Doran was three days old she was told he was incurably brain injured and would be able to do nothing. She decided differently!
After exploring every hopeful avenue, Doran seemed little better. Linda saw that existing therapies relied on managing a child to use alternative muscles not the restoration of the right muscles. As children grew, this poor foundation caused increasing stress and collapsed under them. She began to believe that the answer lay in a principal that also applied to normal development and she set about the adventure of finding that answer!
Modern medicine often sees the answer in some chemical fix for the symptoms. Linda knew that she wanted to deal with the actual cause at a more natural level. As a loving mother with total understanding of the problem, she had a unique qualification before she even began her studies at University College, London. Every brain -injured child Linda met had a problem breathing so Linda decided to focus her PhD research on the respiratory system. Her work showed that all neurological problems led to deep respiratory problems. Moreover, without normal respiratory mechanics, metabolic recovery in the brain was impossible.
Linda's extensive research and dedication led to the development of The Scotson Technique which, without the use of drugs or invasive therapy, proved the abnormalities associated with brain injury could potentially be reversed. Recovery was possible.
The real miracle of this carefully measured progress was that it was predictable and worked with ALL children. The unique, gentle, deeply restorative therapy, gradually transformed the lives of the children and their families.
Thanks to Linda's passion and determination to find a better way of living for her son and others like him, the Advance institute for The Scotson Technique has now helped families worldwide and can help you Advance your child.
