Derailed: The Hijacking of our Children’s Neurodevelopment

Derailed: The Hijacking of our Children’s Neurodevelopment


This course is a MUST for any chiropractor working with children!

With the ever increasing rise in neurodevelopmental disorders and childhood illnesses, it is important that the Doctor of Chiropractic working with children have an understanding of the multitude of factors that can be attributed to this epidemic.  In addition, they should be well versed in various stressors that can potentially disrupt optimal neurodevelopment and have concrete tools to help cultivate a preventative approach using the philosophy of a chiropractic lifestyle.  They should also be aware of atypical development patterns in the first year of life that can alter the trajectory of neurodevelopment- potentially leading to physical and/or mental illness later in life.


Course Topics Covered:

  • An overview of brain development and functional regions of the brain and the potential role chiropractic care can play in proper brain development.
  • Brain regions associated with neurodevelopmental disorders and, if affected, how this might be expressed in children.
  • What signs/symptoms the Doctor of Chiropractic should be aware of in a clinical setting.
  • The role maternal stressors play in neurodevelopment and the role chiropractic care can play in minimizing prenatal stress.
  • The neurobiology of disease and the potential physical and mental health consequences that can occur later in life.
  • Fundamental preconception considerations including diet, lifestyle, environment, mindfulness and chiropractic care.
  • Fundamental prenatal considerations including diet, lifestyle, environment, mindfulness and chiropractic care.
  • Fundamental chiropractic considerations to help optimize the health and neurodevelopment of the newborn during the first year of life.
  • Pediatric “Red flags” to consider in the clinical setting.
  • Q & A and clinical cases
