Dr. Florance is also the mother of a maverick!
Dr. Florance is not only a brain expert with a long list of qualifications; she is also the mother of a Maverick. Her youngest son, Whitney, is a visual thinker who was diagnosed with severe autism at a young age. Just like many of her clients, Dr. Florance was devastated by his symptoms and diagnosis.
Whitney was unable to cuddle, connect, or communicate like her other children had. He was disconnected, uncoordinated, and suffered from a disintegrated sensory system.
With time, Dr. Florance began to see patterns in Whitney’s behavior that led her to believe he could be reached. Out of these observations, and her years of training, she began to develop the concepts and strategies that are now central to Brain Engineering Labs.
