Developmental Delay

Is a diagnosis of Developmental Delay a life sentence?

Overview Developmental Delay

“Developmental Delay” and “Pervasive Developmental Disorders” (PDD) are labels that describe a group of 5 conditions that share common patterns involving difficulty with communication and socialization. Medical professionals and doctors sometimes give children with these problems a very negative outlook for health and success in life.
Our programs are based on a more modern understanding of these conditions. “Developmental Delay” and “Pervasive Developmental Disorder” (PDD) are not diagnoses but rather descriptions of a set of symptoms in a brain-injured child.

Recovery from Developmental Delay

To be successful one must treat the brain, where the injury actually exists. The Institutes offers a comprehensive home program that focuses on neurological growth and development. Our goal is physical, physiological, intellectual, and social growth towards excellence for each child.

Parents may wish to bring their child to The Institutes. After a detailed history is taken and a careful and thorough evaluation is completed, a diagnosis is made and a home treatment program is designed for each child and carefully taught.

For Parents of Hurt Children

Parents from around the world have helped their children with Developmental Delay or Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) to move along the path to wellness.

Using the programs developed by The Institutes, children diagnosed with Developmental Delay or PDD have been able to significantly improve their ability to learn, to communicate, to solve problems and, in some cases, to perform at age level or above.

“Developmental Delay” and “Pervasive Developmental Disorder” (PDD) are symptomatic labels, not a diagnosis.

A proper diagnosis describes where the problem exists in the brain, the degree of the problem, and the extent of the problem to the brain. To be successful one must treat the brain, where the problem actually exists.

The Institutes offers a comprehensive program that focuses on learning abilities rather than learning disabilities. Our purpose is give the child real abilities to use in the real world rather than preparing the child for special education. Our goal is intellectual, physical, physiological, and social growth towards excellence for each child.
