Host: If you had someone call you up, I don't know where, heard about you, he said, my kids are little floppy, has a head lag, the pediatric said, by four months shouldn't be there. What advice -- you are not going to see the kids because they are 3,000 miles away. What advice would you give to that family, if there is a little concern, the kids are little floppy, little head lag, doesn't smile, that you should do right away. What are the things you should say, and when should you do it? Ramon Cuevas: Okay, first of all I would say - where do you live? I live in this state, I'll say, I would give you a list of name, please go immediately to one of the therapist -- Host: So you are going to recommend some of that believes the way you do -- Ramon Cuevas: Absolutely. Host: Okay, and there is a group of physiotherapists, having trained people, that have gone through courses, I understand -- it is almost like jiujitsu -- different levels and different levels of -- say I did my homework a little bit. Okay, so in other words, it is not something just, oh, I can read a book and I can do -- Ramon Cuevas: No, no. It cannot be done with a book. The book exists, it's here. We will soon be published, I am looking for -- Host: So, you can read a book on pediatrics if you are not a pediatrician. You need a little experience and you have to also be -- Ramon Cuevas: This is the book of exercise. It has nothing to do with pediatrics action. It's only exercises, if I put pediatrics, it's a big title; but this information need to be used under guidance, but the information is there -- Host: So in other words, a structured course at different levels of expertise, in which the person is tested, so they know what they are saying, that you are saying what they say and it gets with different level. Now if that kid is stimulated, should end up correctly, almost like a normal kid, in other words? Ramon Cuevas: Yes, it's only a re-situation of evaluation and we do quick quick action, maybe the child by himself is going to be good, and mother, may have tried longer, but we just, we try the child to help him quickly with good therapy. We can really really reach the normal level, happened many many times. Host: Could you take a kid that's normal be than better? Ramon Cuevas: It's happened, but for me it was not a concern. Host: Your concern is (Voice Overlap) Ramon Cuevas: Exactly that sounds good, exactly. We can do, but if the child will be walking, at the age of 14, or 13 himself alone, and because we are doing physical therapies, it's going to be moving at the age of 11, doesn't make sense for me. Instead if you put these efforts in something that really needs, but it's possible. Host: If a kid's muscles were okay, but was it interrupting with people? Is there anything that in your type of approaching, getting kid that maybe he is not socializing, maybe a little questionable, maybe you think, it could be a little autism in this thing, can aid the therapies to help these kid at some degree? Ramon Cuevas: People say that, I don't say. Host: You don't know that? Ramon Cuevas: No, no. People say, social status, social -- my therapy. Wet therapy, the Dynamic therapy, the CME therapy, make the child more alert, make the child more social, make the child more aware of the environment that people say, all the children, down syndrome that come from Ramon, that from masturbate in their school that children that come from sessional therapy. I think that is the relationship in between motor cortex and the rest of the brain, when something goes good, it spread the good news to the rest of the neurons, something is good there. So absolutely, but I can say like I fought that out, I don't have proof of that, but people said to me. Host: Give me an honest appraisal, that's your honest appraisal of the situation.
