Summary

Brian's Legacy chronicles the emotional journey of a dedicated father and his troubled son. As a child, Brian Othmer faced many challenges, including epilepsy, Tourette's, Asperger's, and explosive rage. As a young adult, he recorded his journey in a diary, which reveals a young man determined to understand himself and his brain, and to answer the question that drives him: Where do I fit in this world?

In this phoenix-from-the-ashes story, Brian's journal entries are paired with his father's recollections, as Siegfried and Sue Othmer seek out medical and behavioral experts to help them understand and cope with their son. Throughout their heartbreaking odyssey, they finally discover something that works: neurofeedback. Through their work in neurofeedback, Brian's legacy lives on.

Fantastic, moving, heartbreaking, hope giving

Thank you for sharing Brian's story.

Thank you Brain for living your life in the honorable pursuit of truth. You inspired your parents to find what works. Your life is benefitting my life, and to a far greater degree, my disabled son's life. Without you, we would have only our faith to sustain us. Instead, your life lead to an answer to our faithful search.

Kurt, I hope to thank you and your parents personally some day. I too know the pain of loosing your siblings. Your honor to their memory is something I respect deeply.
