Neuro developmental Disorders – Cape Canaveral

June 28 @ 9:00 AM - June 30 @ 6:00 PM EDT

$6600

Presented by: Dr. Matthew Worth

The Carrick Institute has been a pioneer in the education of clinicians that manage and treat neurological disorders for over 40 years. We are proud to present to you our UPDATED curriculum developed to create the clinicians of the future in the management and treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders. This NEW 6-module program builds on top of current best research and understanding of developmental disorders as well as the latest advancements in their treatment. With an increase in the prevalence of developmental disorders, the need for properly trained clinicians that understand the neurophysiology, know how to make the correct diagnosis, understand the co-management with various levels of healthcare and support, and have mastery of a functional neurology approach to treating these conditions is higher than ever.

Learning Objectives:

  • Incidence and comorbidities of NDD for the infant, toddler, adolescent and adult
  • Review of currently accepted etiologies and management (including medications)
  • Understand CNS developmental disruptions
  • Developmental milestones and effect of delays
  • Identification, pathophysiology and management of neurodevelopmental disorders
  • Creating an evidence-based treatment plan with measurable objective outcomes
  • Examination and management of the:
    • Newborn
    • Toddler
    • Adolescent
  • Brain-Gut Connection
    • Nutritional interventions strategies
  • Impact of primitive reflex development/delay
  • Neuropsychological Testing
