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, 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.

The 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 principles: 

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 specific inputs. 

This 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 labels.


 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.

"There hath no trial overtaken you but such as man can bare;  but God is faithful who will not suffer you to be tried above that you are able; but  will with the trial make also the way of escape, that ye may be able to endure it."  I Cor. 10:13 ASV 1901
