Is a diagnosis of Developmental Delay a life sentence?
“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.
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.

Our View on Developmental Delay
Parents from around the world have helped their children diagnosed with Developmental Delay or 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 improve function and, in many cases, perform at peer level-and above.
“We attended the What to Do About Your Brain Injured Child course in Mexico City and took Sebastian for his first visit to Philadelphia shortly thereafter. It was a time of important challenges that helped us strengthen our family.”
Ferruccio was a premature baby and by the third month of life his arms and legs started to become rigid. By age 2, Ferruccio’s parents knew their little boy was in trouble and they learned about the work of The Institutes. They were eager to start treating their little son.
“With this program you always have goals to achieve to improve your life. It must be done with tenacity and believe in what you do. It is the only way to improve and be patient, you will definitely notice the results.”
