Combined with a multi-disciplinary focus on speech, hearing, and psychology, she found the key to unlocking her “unreachable son. Today, Whitney is symptom-free, a college graduate, and a professional engineer.
Through her experience with her son, Dr. Florance discovered what she calls the “Maverick Mind.” Today, Dr. Florance works with Mavericks all over the world through her Brain Engineering Labs, enhancing the lives of children and adults with symptoms of Autism Spectrum, ADD, PDD, and other disorders of communication, language, learning, and behavior.
