This will range from infant challenges such as nursing/latching issues, colic/reflux and difficulties in crawling/walking to many of the “Alphabet Soup” disorders like ADHD, ASD, LD, and SPD. You will also develop an understanding of specific history taking and examination procedures to special types of chiropractic adjusting, functional neurological exercises and dietary changes.
