We are especially concerned with the more “intractable” brain-based problems for people, adults and children, whose needs are not currently being met—sometimes because the biological underpinnings of the problem are not fully understood or accepted.
- Seizures and sub-clinical seizure activity
- Severely disruptive behavior disorders such as Conduct Disorder and Bipolar Disorder
- Temper and rage regulation problems
- Autistic spectrum and pervasive developmental delay
- Cerebral palsy
- Acquired brain injury
- Birth trauma
Many people have sleep problems that can be helped:
- Sleep onset and maintenance
- Bed wetting
- Sleep walking, sleep talking
- Teeth grinding
- Night terrors
We can also be helpful with many of the problems of adolescence:
- Drug abuse
- Suicidal behavior
- Anxiety and depression
And we can often be helpful with the problems associated with aging:
- Problems with irritability, outbursts, depression and anxiety can often be reduced even if the person’s cognition is declining—and, within limits, depending on whether a person is struggling with an ongoing problem of brain decline—cognition can also improve.
The good news is that almost any brain, regardless of its level of function, can be trained to function better.
