Treatment of Hemispheric Disorders – Our Approach
Hemispheric Integration – The stimulation and training of specific neurological pathways to encourage neuroplasticity resulting in academic and social behavioral changes.
Neurosensory – The stimulation of sensory pathways to encourage neuro-plasticity resulting in motor and cognitive changes.
Functional Biochemistry – The use of specific natural compounds that are proven to support neurological, immunological, and digestive processes.
Nutritional Counseling – The purpose is to help you implement the best diet for your child’s needs based upon clinical lab results.
A thorough neurological evaluation will reveal which hemisphere is underdeveloped and will evaluate neurological pathways for over activity and under activity. Specific tests include, but are not limited to, testing for primitive reflexes, testing of cranial nerve function, testing of cerebellar function, testing of frontal eye fields, and even routine blood work. Once the objective data is collected, a treatment plan can be tailored to stimulate and promote hemispheric integration or synchronization thus enabling the brain to work as a whole. With no treatment, the weak side gets weaker and the strong side becomes dominant, which can result in neglect syndromes. However, with specific hemispheric treatment, the weak side can be encouraged to catch up to the dominant side.
