Description

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.

Outline

DEVELOPMENTAL NEUROBIOLOGY: UNDERSTANDING BRAIN DEVELOPMENT

  •  Prefrontal cortex: the CEO
  • Cerebellum: the little brain
  • Temporal lobe: perception and memory
  • Anterior Cingulated Gyrus: the gear shifter
  • Occipital Lobe: the Primary System

DEVELOPMENTAL ENVIRONMENT: UNDERSTANDING THE IMPACT OF ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES

  • Attachment issues (emotional development)
  • Containerized infants
  • Feeding issues
  • Sensory development (vision holds the trump card)
  • Neurogenesis from birth to three
  • The importance of positioning
  • Re-visit the developmental milestones​

DEVELOPMENTAL DELAY AND BEHAVIOR DISORDERS: A DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS OF ENVIRONMENTAL VS. GENETIC-BASED DISORDERS

  • Explore the Amen Checklist of behavior
  • Determine which lobe of the brain is implicated
  • Determine the order of the disorder (Anxiety + Sensory Processing = Bipolar)
  • Examine temperament deregulation
  • Understanding the six types of ADHD
  • Sensory Processing Disorder vs. biological issues

CHANGING OUR VIEW OF HOW THE NERVOUS SYSTEM FUNCTIONS: A SYSTEMS APPROACH FOR TREATMENT

  • Level one: primary sensory systems (2 months)
  • Level two: perceptual-motor foundations (6 months to l year)
  • Level three: perceptual-motor skills (3 years)
  • Level four: academic readiness (4-6 years)

THE “SEVEN BRAIN RULES” FOR  SUCCESSFUL CHILD DEVELOPMENT

  1. Exploration
  2. Vision
  3. The Individualized Brain
  4. Gender
  5. Movement
  6. Sensory Integration
  7. Neuronutrition

SYNCHRONIZING THE OUT OF SYNC CHILD: SELF-REGULATION  AND EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING

  • The importance of core stability
  • Individualized movement patterns
  • The individualized diet for maximum brain/body function
  • Hemisphere laterality
  • Synchronizing sensory input for maximum benefit u Brain/body healing
