Neurodevelopmental Pediatrics:
Autism, ADHD and Related Conditions

neuropeds_webThe Neurodevelopmental Clinic specializes in the integrative treatment of ADHD, autism and related conditions, including Tourette Syndrome, sensory disorders, and behavioral problems. We are also happy to see children with other chronic conditions, such as gastrointestinal problems, asthma and allergies, or other developmental issues.
Integrative medicine is an approach that looks at each child as a complete, unique person, rather than just someone with a set of “symptoms” that needs to be corrected. Integrative medicine also combines the best of both conventional and alternative medicine, using what is most effective for each specific child and situation.

We take the time to carefully and thoroughly evaluate your child’s overall development, including his or her strengths and abilities, as well as challenges. From this process, you and your child will then receive a treatment plan that emphasizes natural and safe interventions, and that complements your family’s unique needs and values.

In addition to conducting an initial evaluation and providing recommendations, we will work together over time with you and your child to adjust or change our treatments to ensure your child’s long-term success.

How Integrative Neurodevelopmental Pediatrics can Help Your Child:

Children with neurodevelopmental conditions such as ADHD and autism can benefit greatly from an integrative approach.

Although many children benefit from stimulant medications such as Ritalin, they can have significant side effects, and many parents are uncomfortable with the idea of long-term use of these medications.

What is not as well known is that there are many safe, effective, and well-researched natural therapies that can significantly improve ADHD symptoms. We will help you work with your child’s diet to ensure optimal functioning, order appropriate laboratory testing for vitamins and minerals, and use those nutritional supplements that have been proven to be effective. We will also discuss home-based behavioral interventions and help you make sure your child is receiving the best possible school program.

When necessary, we will also help you determine whether your child will benefit from Learning Disability testing or referrals to psychologists for other testing or counseling. If medication is currently being taken or is being considered, we will help you coordinate it as part of the overall treatment program. When appropriate, you may receive referrals for neurofeedback, computer-based training, Traditional Chinese Medicine, yoga, massage, or other beneficial therapies.

Dr. Sanford Newmark’s Interview about ADHD:

Dr. Sanford Newmark, “Do 4.2 Million Children Really Need Ritalin? An Integrative Approach to ADHD”

We practice a “biomedical” approach to autism, which recognizes that autism is a complex, multisystem syndrome, which, regardless of severity or age, retains the possibility for significant healing and change. The biomedical approach may include dietary changes, nutritional supplements, specialized testing, and other interventions that address the many gastrointestinal, nutritional, allergic, and immune problems that often accompany the behavioral symptoms of autism.

Our goal with this approach is to decrease specific symptoms, reach an overall improvement in autistic behaviors, and help your child function at the very highest level possible. We will help you sort out the multitude of conflicting recommendations coming from the internet and other sources, using only those that are safe and have a high likelihood of success. We will also help advocate for and coordinate important therapeutic interventions, such as intensive behavioral management, speech and other therapies that your child needs and deserves.
