Going Beyond Vague Diagnosis for Developmental Delays/Behavior Disorders…
Recent changes in our medical society have produced an influx of children for rehab referrals with a vague diagnosis of developmental delays or behavior disorders. A large percentage of these children are later identified as ADHD, SPD, Bipolar, or PDD. Until recently, scientists believed all of these disorders were genetically based. However, recent advances in neuroscience have increased our knowledge of how and why the environment can synthesize body/brain actions and reactions into childhood disorders that lack a genetic basis for existence. Brain-based therapeutic interventions with this model of change go beyond most educational paradigms.
This information-packed recording examines the bio-psychological and neurological reasoning behind environmental induced disorders. Through explicit techniques and research of multiple neuroscientists such as Dr. John Medina and Dr. Daniel Amen, new programming has been established to foster regenerative neuro-pathways at any age. The cutting-edge scientific utilization of neurogenesis and neuroplasticity for therapeutic intervention can facilitate excellent outcomes for multiple diagnostic groups. This recording will embrace "Seven Brain Rules" to accomplish regeneration of the brain. In addition, a holistic approach will be utilized to foster a unique and enriched learning environment for children who display symptoms or demonstrate at risk behaviors. Most importantly, you'll learn strategies for reversing the childhood damage produced by neglect, malnutrition, lack of environmental exposure, and sheer lack of education regarding child development.
