A Neurodevelopmental Approach to Learning and Developmental Problems
For over 60 years, the neurodevelopmental approach to working with learning, mobility, speech, language, processing and attention problems, has been offering hope to parents of children who have received a variety of labels. Whether the label is ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, learning disabled, CAPD, PDD, mentally retarded, autism, Downs, CP...it doesn’t matter. People trained in the neurodevelopmental approach look at the causes, train the parents to work with their child at home to address the problems, and also accelerate academics to help the child catch up.
efficacy of an approach depends on the strength of the model upon which
the work is based. This work is based upon two well accepted
1. the brain naturally develops in an orderly, hierarchical fashion driven by environmental stimulation,
2. the fact that the central nervous system can be changed by specific
stimulation - the concept of neuroplasticity which is validated in all
of today's scientific literature - the brain can change and adapt given
is God's design and the source of our hope to help individuals function
more efficiently. We seek to identify where in the developmental
process problems lie and how to provide stimulation with sufficient
frequency, intensity and duration to impact the central nervous system.
Function is an interaction of neurological, psychological, behavioral
training, nutrition, home and learning environments. The
neurodevelopmental approach seeks to look at all of the pieces.
Standing on the shoulders of great researchers and people that have
worked in this field for decades, we are honored to have many methods
and techniques that help individuals surpass the expectations of the
It isn’t easy, it is work, but there is hope. You don’t have to accept limits on your child’s potential or a life of dependence on drugs.
