DOES ANYONE HERE USE A NEURODEVELOPMENTALIST? I HAVE SEEN ALOT OF INFORMATION HERE AND THERE BUT I HAVE NEVER REALLY SEEN ANYONE ON A MESSAGE BOARD OR FORUM DISCUSS IT IN DEPTH. WE USE ECI, BUT I JUST WONDER IF THERE IS MORE I CAN DO FOR HER. RILEIGH IS 7 1/2 MONTHS AND DOING GREAT, BUT SHE ONLY GETS PT ONCE A MONTH AND THAT IS IT!!

INSURANCE DOES NOT COVER, BUT MONEY IS NOT THE ISSUE, I DON'T WANT TO WASTE TIME ON SOMETHING THAT ECI WOULD COVER EVENTUALLY?? I JUST DON'T KNOW!!

HAS ANYONE TRIED THIS NEURODEVELOPMENTAL APPROACH?? ANY INFO WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

It sounds a bit like what we call in Germany padovan method. Do you mean that perhaps?

YES, I BELIEVE THAT THIS METHOD IS BASICALLY THE SAME THING. I READ ABOUT THIS FROM A LINK ON ANOTHER DS WEBSITE. EVER HEARD OF THE NACD OR ICAN? THIS ORGANIZATION IS ALL ABOUT THIS METHOD OF 'THERAPY'.

I ASKED MY DR. AND SHE SEEMED TO THINK THAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT AN ACUTAL DEVELOPMENTAL PED. I DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS ANYTHING TO THIS APPROACH, BUT IT SEEMS TO HAVE HELPED SOME IN WAYS THAT OTHER THERAPY DID NOT.

I REMEMBER THEM SAYING IN AN ARTICLE THAT THEY TREAT THE PROBLEMS IN BRAIN FUNCTION BEFORE IT BECOMES A PROBLEM. OTHER THERAPISTS WAIT UNTIL THE 'PROBLEMS' PRESENT THEMSELVES AND THEN THEY ARE ADDRESSED AND WORKED ON THROUGH VARIOUS THERAPIES. STILL LOOKING FOR INFO!!

THANKS FOR THE REPLY.

Can I tell you more after october 16? IŽll take Cecilie for a week with padovan therapie from october 9 to 14. We have done a little of padovan with our ST when Cecilie was very young. That was mostly learning to concentrate and to move. We then stopped because we had to change our ST. And now we go for this seminary, but our ST would be able to do padovan as well. She prefers what she calls Castillo Morales for Cecilie and it seems to help a lot. It is about creating muscle tonus in the face and creating consciousness for orofacial activity.

Excuse my lousy English. My first language was french (my mother comes from Belgium)and we live in Germany, so English only comes in 3rd place... Crying or Very sad
