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.
After speech therapy was unsuccessful, John was diagnosed as mentally retarded and developmentally delayed, likely due to encephalitis at birth. Today, after working with The Institutes, John is flourishing physically, intellectually and socially.
Ana Isabel was born with complications and suffered a severe brain injury that affected her development. Now she’s in tenth grade in a highly academic school in Guatemala. Not only is she at her grade level, but also she has shown academic excellence.
When Reagan was born, she did not have a birth cry and had difficulty breathing. Within the first week of life, Reagan had difficulty eating and at 6 days old she began having seizures. Today, after her work at The Institutes, she’s on the path to wellness.
