Who We Help
Neurodevelopmental reorganization can help people with:
- attachment issues
- autism spectrum disorders
- ADD/ADHD learning disabilities
- bipolar disorder
- cerebral palsy
- obsessive/compulsive disorder
- limbic rage
At a full neurodevelopmental evaluation, we will collect the following:
- Details of current problems and concerns
- Complete developmental history covering pregnancy, birth, and developmental milestones; history includes both normal processes as well as delays and interruptions
- Significant medical background including accidents, illnesses, hospitalizations, diagnosis and medications
- Other history involving trauma, stress, or abuse
After the history, a functional neurological evaluation is performed. During this evaluation the client performs very specific tasks. Each task is designed to elicit a certain response from a particular area of the brain. How the brain processes the given task and “puts out” its answer illustrates how well that area of the brain is working (these are called neurological soft signs).
We will then discuss the normal neurological developmental process, the basis of the program being used. The findings of the evaluation will then be presented. These findings are given in context to the profile of normal neurological development. You should gain an understanding of the areas in your child’s brain that have good healthy function and those that have deficits. Then a program is designed according to those needs and uses targeted developmental movements and activities to address those neurological gaps. The client and/or care provider will be instructed in how to complete these on a daily basis. The initial evaluation is a very interactive process with many opportunities for questions and answers as the appointment progresses.
