Brain imaging techniques like MRI and PET scanning suggest that many children suffering with disorders of attention, thought, and behavior have decreased activity ONLY in certain areas of the brain. Most parents can attest to this as they witness daily the focal strengths of their child's brain. H.C.T. customizes your child's therapy protocol to his or her neurological needs. This leads to not only the most expedient results, but also the most efficient use of therapy time. The brain is affected very differently by Mozart than by the sound of falling rain. Spinning a child to the left has a different neural consequence than spinning him or her to the right. And the cortical (brain) areas used in reading a story are not the same as those used in comprehending that story or its sub-text. Without an appreciation of these neurological realities, your child's results will be profound and enduring. Modern brain research allows us to know how to preferentially activate various areas of the brain allowing us to develop a precise brain-based treatment program for your child. By treating the brain and not the symptom(s), we can address the functional imbalance within the neural circuits of your child's brain thereby allowing for the greatest possible improvement in behavior, attention, and cognition.
