Diagnosed or not.

What is a neurodevelopmental disorder?

Neurodevelopmental disorders are a group of disorders that affect the development of the nervous system, leading to abnormal brain function which may affect emotion, learning ability, self-control and memory.

Neurodevelopmental disorders include:

  • Autism
  • Developmental
  • Delay
  • Sensory Processing
  • Disorder
  • Auditory
  • Processing
  • Disorder
  • A.D.H.D.
  • Speech disorders or delays
  • Global Developmental Delay
  • Reading Difficulties
  • Social Difficulties
  • Learning Difficulties

Whilst the bulk of my experience is with my own child’s diagnosis of of autism, I have learned that autism in my son encompasses many, if not all, of the above mentioned disorders. My child has autism, but also faces challenges with auditory and sensory processing delay, speech delay, social difficulties, developmental delay, attention and concentration. The reason I use the term neurodevelopmental disorders is to include all children and families who have diagnoses like these, and not perhaps only autism.

Do you diagnose children with neurodevelopmental disorders?

No. Official diagnosis of a neurodevelopmental disorder is a multi disciplinary service required to assess your child per certain acknowledged ratings and scales. We can provide guidance on how to access this service publically or privately.

However, we are delighted to meet your child and provide our observations based on our experience.

Please remember you don’t need a diagnosis to help your child now.

Do you do in person or remote consulations?

Both! We are currently seeing clients remotely due to the government restrictions regarding Covid-19.

However, once the government restrictions allow, we are happy to see you in person in Dublin, Ireland.

My child has no diagnosis - can we still see you?

Of course, we would be happy to work with any family.

Waiting lists for public health services can seem endless, please remember you don’t need a diagnosis to help your child now.
