Scan the checklist to the left to see if you have questions about how you may need support for your brain. The list also applies to our children.
What evidence is there that the brain is involved in disorders of learning and behavior?
Learning, cognitive development and emotional maturation require a healthy brain. So does growing up to be a happy well–adjusted adult. What does science tell us are the ‘ingredients’ necessary for a healthy brain? How do we reliably know if we (or our children) have them? What science–based (‘evidence–based’) help is available for remediation when necessary?
There is a large body of scientific evidence indicating that the commonly used brain–altering medications do more harm than good in the long run, and that this is contributing to the shocking increase in disability due to mental illness (see Anatomy of an Epidemic by Robert Whitaker). We need an approach based on good science that can objectively identify and treat the individual needs of each person and child, and is sustainable because it supports normal brain function.
