Neurobehavioral Disorders of Childhood

An Evolutionary Perspective

Author: Robert Melillo,Gerry Leisman

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 1441912312

Category: Medical

Page: 447

View: 2415

Attention deficit disorder, attention deficit hyperactive disorder, pervasive developmental disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, asperger's syndrome, and autism, to name but a few, may be viewed as points on a spectrum of developmental disabilities in which those points share features in common and possibly etiology as well, varying only in severity and in the primary anatomical region of dysfunctional activity. This text focuses on alterations of the normal development of the child. A working theory is presented based on what we know of the neurological and cognitive development in the context of evolution of the human species and its brain. In outlining our theory of developmental disabilities in evolutionary terms, the authors offer evidence to support the following notions: Bipedalism was the major reason for human neocortical evolution; Cognition evolved secondary and parallel to evolution of motricity; There exists an overlap of cognitive and motor symptoms; Lack of thalamo-cortical stimulation, not overstimulation, is a fundamental problem of developmental disabilities; A primary problem is dysfunctions of hemisphericity; Most conditions in this spectrum of disorders are the result of a right hemisphericity; Environment is a fundamental problem; All of these conditions are variations of the same problem; These problems are correctable; Hemisphere specific treatment is the key to success.

The Symphony of Reflexes

Interventions for Human Development, Autism, ADHD, CP, and Other Neurological Disorders

Category: Nervous system

Primitive reflexes play an important role in the development of the neurological system in all aspects of our cognition, behavior, and movement. They affect our quality of life, determine our potential, and even our happiness. For children with disabilities, a group of unintegrated or undeveloped reflexes can not only affect their ability to learn but also play a large part in other neurological conditions, such as autism and cerebral palsy. In The Symphony of Reflexes: Interventions for Autism, ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, and Human Development, Bonnie L. Brandes, MEd, provides a thorough discussion of these primitive reflexes and then presents specific movements in her program, "QRI Brain Boost," designed to help children with learning disabilities and neurological conditions. As the founder of Quantum Reflex Integration, QRI(R), the author uses acu-reflex points and cold laser to integrate primitive reflexes. Her programs are used in over thirty countries. "The timing of this book could not be better, because the incidence of autism and other sensory and neurological disorders continues to climb at an alarming rate, a rate that cannot be exclusively explained by better labeling or improved diagnostic techniques. Understanding primitive reflexes and the role they play in neurological and social development is the key to healing this newest generation. "The Symphony of Reflexes is not only a guide for the recovery of the nervous system for those with autism, ADHD, and other learning disabilities, but also a guide for human development and maximizing human potential. "Finally, Bonnie brings to life environmental factors, such as stress during pregnancy, diet and nutrition, EM Radiation, and the Brain-Gut relationship, as well as the ever-growing amount of toxic chemicals that are part of our environment. Being aware of the potential causes is a key step in securing a healthier future for ourselves and the next generation of children. "Bonnie has assembled an incredible amount of information and organized it in a helpful and straightforward manual. No matter how we are interacting with our environment, whether we are catching a ball, riding a bike, or holding a paint brush, each of these activities have their roots in The Symphony of Reflexes." -Dr. Donald Gerken DC, DACCP, CSTD

In The Rhythmic Movement Method, author Dr. Harald Blomberg explains why rhythmic movement is more useful than drugs in treating ADHD and many other disorders. Based on the spontaneous rhythmic movements of infants, these actions are necessary for the development of the brain, motor abilities, emotions, and mental faculties. He introduces his method-rhythmic movement training-and describes how simple healing exercises stimulate the ability of the brain and the nervous system to renew itself and create new connections. Blomberg shares how these exercises help people develop and mature or heal physically, emotionally, and mentally. With case studies included, The Rhythmic Movement Method helps children with ADHD and adults suffering from depression, psychosis, Parkinson's disease, and other disorders to feel well, function better, and stop taking medications.

Reset Your Child's Brain

A Four-Week Plan to End Meltdowns, Raise Grades, and Boost Social Skills by Reversing the Effects of Electronic Screen-Time

Increasing numbers of parents grapple with children who are acting out without obvious reason. Revved up and irritable, many of these children are diagnosed with ADHD, bipolar illness, autism, or other disorders but don’t respond well to treatment. They are then medicated, often with poor results and unwanted side effects. Based on emerging scientific research and extensive clinical experience, integrative child psychiatrist Dr. Victoria Dunckley has pioneered a four-week program to treat the frequent underlying cause, Electronic Screen Syndrome (ESS). Dr. Dunckley has found that everyday use of interactive screen devices — such as computers, video games, smartphones, and tablets — can easily overstimulate a child’s nervous system, triggering a variety of stubborn symptoms. In contrast, she’s discovered that a strict, extended electronic fast single-handedly improves mood, focus, sleep, and behavior, regardless of the child’s diagnosis. It also reduces the need for medication and renders other treatments more effective. Offered now in this book, this simple intervention can produce a life-changing shift in brain function and help your child get back on track — all without cost or medication. While no one in today’s connected world can completely shun electronic stimuli, Dr. Dunckley provides hope for parents who feel that their child has been misdiagnosed or inappropriately medicated, by presenting an alternative explanation for their child’s difficulties and a concrete plan for treating them.

Set Apart: A Mother’s Steps to Peace traces the footsteps of a woman, Maggie, who gradually comes to suspect that her son, Ben’s, autism is caused by a reaction to his childhood vaccines. Eventually she learns how this diagnosis will change their lives. As the years pass, and he grows from childhood to adulthood, she grows in her love and compassion for him, her fortitude in the face of adversity, and her ability to leaven adversity with a sense of humor. Set Apart tells this mother’s story by describing the events of a rather normal life, one with its share of joys and challenges, that changes forever when the details and ramifications of Ben’s reality become clear. As they learn how to live with that reality, they experience the transformation of their lives. In the end, Maggie finds the peace she’s been missing and the power she needs to use her experiences to achieve a meaningful purpose in this life. Whether you have someone with autism in your family, or you know someone who does, or you simply find inspiring people who discover meaning and purpose in their lives, Set Apart: a Mother’s Steps to Peace will help you to forge a bond with a mother who overcame missteps and detours and found the path to peace in her life.
