Common Threads: Children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders

In the last 3 years, we have had the honor of meeting hundreds of families. Many little feet have ran through our office, and many parents searching for answers have sat in our chairs.


We pride ourselves on providing exceptional care to every individual who walks into our office, and we want you to feel at home while doing so. Therefore, your first visit is a thorough process so that we can best understand your child’s health history, from in utero health to current health, so that no stone is left unturned.

After taking hundreds of histories, we have noticed similarities for children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD, ODD, sensory processing disorder, anxiety, autism and more. It important for us to share these commonalities so that you can be aware of our office as a resource for your family moving forward.

  • Difficult pregnancy- emotional stressors, in-utero constraints (baby in breach position), etc.

  • Birth trauma- forceps/vacuum use, cord wrapped around baby’s neck, c-section (emergency or planned), long labor

  • Breastfeeding difficulties- poor latch, fatigue, reflux

  • Colic and poor sleep

  • Abnormal crawling pattern, skipping cross-crawl, scooting on bottom, or not crawling at all

  • Constipation

  • Frequent illnesses (strep throat, ear infections) requiring many rounds of antibiotics, tube placements, and/or surgery such as tonsils or adenoids removed

  • Allergies and food sensitivities beginning early on
