FOCUS on Neurodevelopmental Disorders for Children & Adults
Too often we fall back on the notion that there are two main options in dealing with a neurodevelopmental disorder; medicate or live with the problems. There are other options.
Neurodevelopmental disorders are disabilities associated primarily with the functioning and development of the brain, such as:
- ADD & ADHD
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Asperger’s syndrome
- Learning disabilities
- Undiagnosed problems with hyperactivity, inattention, or an unexplained lack of productivity
These disabilities may be caused by deviations in normal development and have a huge impact on an individual in the short term, as well as the long term, if not corrected.
