Vignette # 8
Sarah, a seventeen year old female in the eleventh grade, states “Now I take more time to think about things (i.e. vocabulary words) and I spend more time and take more steps to remember them than before”. She is also reported to take more time to insure she has followed all the necessary steps and test taking skills in biology and history are improved in her improved ability to completely read questions and formulating better thought out written answers.
She reports wearing the device while taking tests “It relaxed me. I remember coming into the class with a headache. By the time I finished the test the headache was gone.”
After working daily with an educational therapist for fifteen days with application of the CES device for at least
forty-five minutes daily she was successful for the first time in memorizing two pages of lines in a skit, demonstrated improved math skills and comprehension of biology concepts. Sarah states that she would not have been able to accomplish this without the use of the device. Self confidence also improved and fear of test taking was greatly decreased if not eliminated. Her grades are now in the B range where formerly they were in the D to F range. intervention was also associated with the cessation of a difficult premenstrual tension syndrome. She reports no further menstrual cramps since using the device and states “I am not witchy anymore” during her menstrual periods. She states that she is no longer bothered by the chronic fatigue that so dramatically affected her earlier learning efforts.
