Childhood Devlopmental Disorders such as ADHD, Autism and Dyslexia are often referred to as learning disabilities and share many common features. The term learning disability leads one to believe that just the ability to learn or classroom behavior is affected, while the rest of their development proceeds smoothly. Over the past 25 years, research has led to a better understanding of these disorders. New thinking not only realizes that there are learning disabilities, but there are also multiple signs and symptoms present throughout their body. The link between learning disorders and their physical signs correlate with a decreased activity in specific areas of their brain.
Most of these disorders have been recognized for over 50 years now, and the awareness and diagnosis of them has been steadily growing. The problem is that little has changed in the treatment of these disorders and the incidences keep rising to now epidemic proportions. Few changes have been made to the diagnostic criteria and it is still limited in what it describes. Due to this, the majority of people still have limited views on what actually causes the problem and what re-mediates it.
The Brain Coordination Therapy program is a comprehensive treatment system to help those affected by these disorders.
