Childhood Developmental Disorder Rehabilitation
This form of functional neurological rehabilitation is specifically designed to target the affected areas of the brainstem, cerebellum and cortex which are at the root cause of developmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder,Aspergers, ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Dyslexia, Tourettes, Sensory Processing Disorder, Bed wetting, Delayed Motor Skill, Behavioral Issues, and OCD.
Before any deficits in attention, behavior, higher learning, or social skills can be improved in a child, their brain’s ability to integrate sensory information and program proper motor signals must be re-calibrated through brain activation modalities.
Almost every child with a brain imbalance causing a neurodevelopmental disorder will also have issues with their motor skills making them clumsy, uncoordinated and awkward. In some cases this can be obviously seen in their gait, posture and gross movements. In other cases it is very subtle and only seen in the smoothness or accuracy of their eye movements. Other motor activities that can be affected are: vestibular (balance), posture, eye movements, primitive reflexes, fine and gross motor skills, handedness, muscle tone, rhythm and timing and strength.
Also abnormal processing of sensory stimuli from hearing, vision, smell, taste, touch, vestibular and spatial perception can cause a child with a brain imbalance to react abnormally to these stimuli causing poor behavior.
Our approach to remapping neuron connections in your child’s brain is to activate motor skill networks and sensory integration centers. To accomplish this we use the following specific motor exercises and sensory stimulation to produce neurological improvements in the children we work with:
Eye movement exercises
Gaze stability exercises
Balance and coordination training
Primitive reflex retraining
Core strength training
Complex movement patterns
