According to governmental statistics, 12% of children aged 3 to 17 are neurodevelopmentally impaired. Genetics cannot explain skyrocketing rates of ADHD, sensory processing problems, and autism spectrum disorders.
Child behavioral health cannot be viewed as a “head-up” phenomenon any longer. It requires intuition, cutting-edge investigative science, and a systems-based approach that looks at the whole child in her environment. Seeing children’s bodies as messengers sounding the alarm about what is out of balance, this is what a holistic pediatric practitioner is adept at.
Maya Shetreat-Klein is pioneering a gentler, more effective approach toward pediatric neurology. She stands in very sparse company at the top of a new paradigm in children’s health.
- Should we be medicating child behavioral problems?
- What is driving the epidemic of chronic pediatric illness?
- What should kids be eating for brain and body wellness?
- What are the top three supplements for supporting brain health in children?
- What are the most important diagnostics for vague psychiatric and behavioral problems?
