Many educators and doctors still tell parents that Autism, ADHD, Developmental Delays, etc. are life long problems. Not true. These problems are due to imbalance in brain called hemisphericity (right or left brain is under performing) and are associated with lack of plasticity (multiple connections) in key areas of the brain . Just like a stroke victim can, many times, fully recover, these brain areas with appropriate brain based therapies and nutrition can be re-irrigated. Now, medications such as Ritalin ( a class 2 narcotic whose long term side effects are still not known), are no longer the treatment of choice. What is different about functional neurology? We focus on the parts of the brain that are under performing (ACCENTUATE THE NEGATIVE) as opposed to strengthening the part of the brain that is already strong. So we don’t accentuate the positive which only creates more asymmetry between the two halves of the brain and worsens the problem.

The brain CAN change. Ours is a revolutionary SOLUTION for children with Functional Disconnections or Learning and Behavioral Disorders (ADD, Dyslexia, Autism, Aspergers’s etc.).

If you have wondered if chiropractic neurology and functional medicine can help you, see a chiropractor. Better yet, see a chiropractic neurologist such as myself, Dr. Scott Brown.

Children with Developmental Delays are DIFFERENT and feel different from other children. In functional neurology, we strongly believe that this is due to something called hemisphericity (one half of the brain is not performing equal to the other). For instance, a child with a rapidly developing right brain and (by comparison) a slower developing left brain may not be able to read words or will tire while reading. A child with the opposite (a rapidly developing left brain and a slower right brain may a whiz at reading but poor with social skills, reading body cues, and eye contact. These children FEEL different because they are. Most feel disconnected from their bodies and have poor muscle tone. They have poor rhythm, timing, posture, and gait. Most do not fully experience the senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, feel. Many time they can’t use more than one sense at once and can become abnormally sensitive to one of the senses (such as sound or light sensitivity).

In America over 20 million prescriptions  for Ritalin are written each year. It is frighteningly the most widely prescribed medication for children IN THE WORLD. Ritalin use has increased almost 1,000 percent since 1990 in spite of the severe side effects and the fact that the long term consequences are STILL UNKNOWN. Ritalin is a class 2 narcotic and has strikingly similar properties to cocaine. 25% of kids in special education classes have Tourette’s syndrome or tics where involuntary movements occur. Why are our kids so unhealthy? The treatment protocols to diagnose and treat childhood developmental disorders are the same today as in the 1950’s. What is this and why are so many kids on drugs?

(1) Parents want a quick fix to a complex problem that involves exercise, nutrition, environmental toxins, parenting, and a host of other bugaboos. Ritalin (when it works) seems like a miracle overnight magic pill. Very seductive.

(2) The lack of understanding that childhood developmental disorders  such as ADHD, ADD, OCD, PDD’s, Dyslexia, Tourette’s, etc. are the SAME PROBLEM not separate entities.

(3) The false belief that these problems are incurable

(4) Doctors, educators, and parents that are using the approach of ” accentuate the positive” academic approach which aggravates the problem

(5) Last but not least, the obscene promotions of pharmaceutical drugs that cover the symptoms of problems that are CORRECTABLE with brain based therapies and nutritional interventions.

A big part of my practice is treating learning, sensory/motor processing, and developmental disorders. There are no drug “cures” for these disorders. Research shows that  Autistic children have under developed (smaller than normal) areas of the brain in  the frontal lobe, basal ganglia, and cerebellum. The rise in Autism has been the subject of great controversy. In 1980, there was no doctor trained for treating Autism because it was largely unknown (less than 1 in 100,000 cases). Today the estimates are in the 1 in100 range. Unbelievable right? One argument, put forth by the profit driven drug industry which makes big dollars on vaccination programs, is that it is genetic. Scientifically speaking, gene mutations in populations cannot occur quickly enough to account for the exponential rise in Autism in just 30 years. Clearly there are other factors. On the other side are the anti-vaccination party who think that the mercury in vaccines is (or was) purely responsible for the rise.

In my opinion, the problem is a societal one that includes a number of factors:

(1) the rise of toxic processed foods, water, air, and pharmaceuticals

(2) lack of exercise

(3) Computer and TV babysitting

(4) Absentee parenting

(5) Stress

(6) Obesity

(7) Heavy metals (including vaccine loads)

THE BRAIN CAN CHANGE

(1) Autistic problems have solutions

(2) Medications aren’t the answer

(3)  Conditions can be reversed

(4) This is one problem with one solution

(5) This is one case where you don’t accentuate the positive, you accentuate the negative (side of the brain)

HOW CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGY or  YOUR CHIROPRACTOR WORKS

(1) Kinesthetic stimulation to the side of decreased brain or cerebellum

(2) Visual stimulation to the side of decreased brain

(3) Auditory stimulation to the side of decreased brain

(4) Olfactory stimulation to the side of decreased brain

(5) Cognitive exercises to the side of decreased brain

(6) Elimination of primitive reflexes

(7) Elimination of offending foods

(8) Elimination of toxins

CONDITIONS THAT CAN BE REVERSED

ADD/ADHD, Autism/Asperger’s, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder, Dyslexia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Oppositional Defiant Disorders, Tourette’s Syndrom, and Non Verbal Learning Disabilities

NINE UNIQUE THINGS ABOUT AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDERS: (1) they are not separate but have the same underlying problem -smaller brain areas (2) deficits in clumsiness will occur in 50-100% of these kids (4) bi-pedalism (standing on two feet) leads to brain asymmetry (5) cognitive and motor dysfunction (6) loss of stimulation from postural muscles leads to loss of temporal processing (7) developmental delays (8) the most common problem is gait and posture (9) loss of stimulation from postural muscles results in loss of spatial connections.

Interactive Metronome (IM) has been widely recognized for improving motor skills and now research is finding unexpected benefits to IM treatment. Clinicians working with cognitive, behavioral, social, communicative, and academic functions are finding substantial improvements in these areas:
(1) Attention and concentration
(2) Cognitive speed
(3)Executive function
(4) Auditory processing
(5) Language processing
(6) Motor control and co-ordination
(7) Memory problems
(8) Self control (aggression/impulsivity)
(9) Reading & math fluency
(10) Phonological awareness
(11) Speech apraxia
(12) Tourette’s Syndrome, tics,
(13) Stuttering
(14) Sensory processing

What is IM?
IM is a brain based assessment and treatment tool that has been shown to improve neurological functions of motor planning and sequencing (core functions of the brain). Reaching, grasping, aiming, speaking, walking, and listening all utilize motor planning and sequencing. Before IM, objective measurements were lacking and there were two important questions that were unanswered:
(1) What tool can precisely and objectively measure and document the degree of impairment to motor planning and sequencing?
(2) What is the most objective and efficient way to restore these core brain functions?

IM is the answer to both these questions. Clinicians can objectively measure motor planning and sequencing and assign a level of impairment in milliseconds. As the student improves, her ability to motor plan and sequence is reflected in improving millisecond averages.

What age group is IM appropriate for? Age 6 and above have been traditionally qualified; however, today chiropractic neurologists have been using IM with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in certain cases. Expected improvements in the areas of sensory processing, motor planning, language, and communication are measured and documented. Some students progress at a faster rate than others.

How does IM improve function? Timing and rhythm

IM has been shown to improve function and recovery of patients with:
ADHD
Apraxia
Auditory Processing Disorder
Autistic Spectrum Disorders
Brain Tumors
Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral Vascular Accident
Developmental Delays/Learning Disabilities
Dyslexia and other Reading Disorders
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Limb Amputation/Prosthetics
Multiple Sclerosis
Non Verbal Learning Disorder
Parkinson’s Disease
Phonological Processing Disorder
Traumatic Brain Injury
Sensory Processing Disorder
