Hello and welcome to Confident Calm Kids. My name is Michael Mulcahy and I run the ConfidentCalmKids Autism Intervention programme based in Cork. We specialise in working with Children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), Epilepsy, Anxiety and other similar condition.

Autism Intervention programme

Through a uniquely designed Autism Intervention programme combining NeurOptimal Neurofeedback Brain Training, Kinesiology and Integrating Retained Primitive Reflexes, this programme bring’s positive benefits to all areas of the Child’s life. Some of these benefits include the Child being more Calmer, more Communicative, less Meltdowns, improved Behaviour in the home and school and more Confident in themselves. These are just some of the many positive benefits Children have experienced after completing the programme. Through these positive changes to the Child’s life, this enables the Child to live their life to the fullest of their potential as the person they are.

ConfidentCalmKids Autism intervention Pilot Programme Results

As there was nobody else in Ireland doing this kind of work with children diagnosed with ASD, ADD/ADHD, SPD, Anxiety and other similar conditions, in March 2016 I setup a pilot programme. The purpose of the programme was to show the positive benefits children can achieve from completing the ConfidentCalmKids programme. On the pilot programme there were 4 children, 3 of the children were referred to the programme by a local Doctor in Ballycotton.

Profiles of the children on the programme:

14 year old boy diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, Aspergers, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia
11 year old boy diagnosed with ASD
7 year old boy diagnosed with SPD
7 year old boy diagnosed with ASD

During the consultation before the children started on the programme, I asked the parents to list 5 areas where they would like to see desired changes for their child. The following tables list the 5 areas for each of the children, with the frequency of the issue before the programme and the frequency of the issue after the programme. You can click on the link below each table to get the full detailed report for each child after completing the ConfidentCalmKids programme.
