Drive Brain Development: Closing the GAP Between Your Child’s Chronological Age and Their Developmental Age

Sujata Setya with Dr. Gruttadauria

On September 23, 2009, Michael A. Gruttadauria, CD, DACAN, spoke about Neuro-Enhancement Therapy and now to enhance brain function in your child while you are doing your biomedical protocol.

Dr. Gruttadauria explained that PDD is a broad diagnosis covering a spectrum of childhood neurological disorders. What it means in actuality is a delay in the brain's developmental process. In essence, for every 24 hour period that goes by, your child's brain only develops for 18 hours. After 1 year, there may not be a visible difference between your child and a neurotypical one, but after 2 and 3 years, you see the GAP. The GAP is the difference between the actual or chronological age of your child and their developmental age; meaning the age that best describes where they are with language, socialization, and overall development. Unfortunately, this GAP widens every year as our expectations of children grow exponentially. Sensory-Motor Integration drives brain development in neonates and toddlers, so can we use it therapeutically. The vast majority of doctors that treat kids on the spectrum address the biomedical issues, but no one is addressing the GAP.

Dr. Gruttadauria, is the founder and clinical director of The Long Island Spectrum Center in Plainview, New York, and one of only a few hundred doctors worldwide to achieve Diplomate status in Chiropractic Neurology. Five and a half years ago, Dr. Gruttadauria's 18-month-old daughter was diagnosed with PDD-NOS. It was at that point that he began a personal and professional mission to help children with neurodevelopmental disorders. In 2006, Dr. Gruttadauria created a research-based treatment program called Neuro-Enhancement Therapy (NET). NET combines a functional neurological and bio-medical examination with hemispheric-based sensory stimulation, multi-sensory integration, IT-based cognitive stimulation and bionutritional modification. In September 2007, Dr. Gruttadauria's daughter began kindergarten without any special education and without a diagnosis! Dr. Gruttadauria was recently awarded the Caring Heart for Autism Award.
