Cortical Integrative Therapy Treatment of ADD/HD in Children: A Pilot Study

The purpose of this summary is to report the results of a pilot project that was undertaken to demonstrate the effectiveness of treating ADD/HD through the Infinite Potential Program. The pilot project was funded by a grant of $150,000 received from the Rhode Island Legislature for their 2004-2005 budgetary year. All of the funds received, less an administrative fee, were used to purchase capital equipment and materials that provided free treatment to ten children diagnosed with ADD/HD. We are grateful for this grant and believe that the results of this pilot program demonstrate that the confidence, commitment, and generosity of the Rhode Island Legislature were justified.

Hand Replantation: Functional results (3 cases)

Between 2002 and 2007, hand replantation was performed at Rhode Island Hospital in three males ranging from 8 to 22 years. The amputations were the result of a log splitter in the child and industrial accidents in the other two cases. The nondominant hand was amputated in all cases. The level of amputation in all cases was in the distal part of the forearm. For the third case, in addition to conventional hand therapy, another type of therapy was added – Cortical Integrative Therapy. The goal was to see if neurocortical stimulation can affect peripheral nerve regeneration and function through reeducation of the patients’ sensory and motor perception.
