Maximum Achievement Program℠ (MAP) for Children
MAP utilizes therapies such as PlayAttention® to help your child increase focus and attention.
In addition to effectively addressing the symptoms of ASD, MAP has been shown to be a successful therapy protocol for children with ADD and ADHD. These disorders are not always easy to diagnose and belong to a spectrum of neurological disorders with no known physiological basis. The spectrum includes: ADD, ADHD, PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder), OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), Asperger’s Syndrome, Tourette’s Syndrome and Autism. ADHD is not a learning disability. However like other neurological disorders, it can affect the ability to progress in society and the ability to learn.
Fortunately, public preference for the non-pharmacological and holistic approach is growing. Society is well aware of the adverse side effects of medications and other chemicals used in conventional therapies. Medication controls symptoms without getting to the root of the problem. If the brain has reduced metabolic rates, the medication will increase them, but if you remove the medication, the problem will return.
By far, the majority of children and adults do very well without a stimulant medication if the patient is under the care of a Chiropractic Neurologist uniquely trained in evaluating and managing neurological disorders such as ASD, ADD and ADHD.
MAP addresses the patient’s individual problems. The symptoms your child has associated with his/her spectrum or learning disorder do have a cause. The true cause of the symptoms leads us to the most effective therapy regime. Research shows that the link is the brain.
