Childhood Developmental Disorders

 

Developmental delay affects up to 3% of children, and may occur as part of a diagnosable condition, or may be of no known cause. Developmental disorders include autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and ADHD among others.

Optimal nutrition is particularly important to ensure these children have all of the right nutrients to support growth, development, and other therapies they might be undertaking. A trained naturopath can help to identify which nutrients are at risk, and strategise how to improve diet, or supplement as needed.  Herbal and nutritional medicine can be used to support classroom learning outcomes, calm anxiety and tension, and improve sleep.

 

If you are worried that your child is experiencing delays in their development, or has a known developmental disorder, schedule an appointment and get the help you need.
