Fresh Insights on a Neurological Condition Affecting a Growing Number of Our Children

New understandings of how the brain works, when viewed through a comprehensive appreciation of attachment, human vulnerability and the developmental process, hold great promise for unraveling some of the most confounding mysteries of childhood.

Evidence is mounting that the neurological condition of sensory overload may very well be the root cause and common denominator of a myriad of diverse manifestations and syndromes, including autism, some types of attention problems and even a form of giftedness.

The huge diversity of symptoms results from both the degree of severity of the neurological condition as well as the domino effect on a child’s attachments, emotions and resulting development.

If understood and properly addressed, sensory overload issues can usually be compensated for and much of the secondary domino effect can be reversed.

Dr. Neufeld will put the puzzle pieces together to make sense of the hypersensitive brain. He will also provide suggestions for how parents, teachers and helping professionals can help the hypersensitive child realize their full developmental potential.
