Kharrazian Institute

We are experiencing an explosion of childhood developmental disorders…

…and don’t have enough practitioners who know how to treat them

Current statistics show that that up to 10 percent of children suffer from some type of developmental disorder.

Common disorders include processing issues, dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, autism, PANDAS, PANS, OCD, anxiety disorders, learning disorders, tics, autoimmune disease, hyper immune reactivity, and more.

Multiple factors impact how a child’s brain develops.

What are the mechanisms behind childhood developmental disorders, when do they start, and how do variables such a child’s diet and lifestyle impact them?

It’s important to understand basic concepts about the developing brain in order to effectively treat childhood developmental disorders.

When you’re looking at neurological development, it’s important to understand your best windows of opportunity.

Around ages six to eight, gray matter in the brain fully develops. This means you lose the potential for significant changes to the brain after this period.

Between ages 18 to 20, the brain’s white matter fully develops, signifying the end of another time period to make significant impact.

As a clinician working with a child who has developmental disorders, your goal is to improve the variables that impact brain development during the optimal time frames — before gray matter and white matter fully develop.

Failing to address childhood developmental disorders during critical periods of brain develop can result in permanent issues and conditions such as ADHD or processing disorders.

We are all faced with a growing population of children who have developmental disorders.

The incidences of these disorders are growing due to factors in the environment that prevent children’s brains from obtaining what they need to be healthy. These factors can begin in utero due to maternal health risks and parental epigenetics.

In this course, I’m going to share with you the research and the mechanisms behind ADD, ADHD, autism, dyslexia, OCD, pediatric neuropsychiatric disorders, PANDAS, PANS, etc.

Why do these disorders happen and what can we do about them?

Questions you should ask when you see pediatric patients with developmental disorders

What is the mechanism behind dyslexia? What is the mechanism behind different processing disorders? How do you identify those?

What kind of variables in a child’s lifestyle and diet can make a positive impact? How do you look for milestones? What do you look for in a neurological exam when a child’s brain is not developing appropriately?

We’re going to go over all of these concepts and make sure you understand the pathophysiology and mechanisms behind these conditions.

Then we will talk about how to develop treatment applications for them, how to reduce risk for developmental disorders in children, and maternal risk factors.

When you understand these principles, you can make a big difference in the pediatric patient population you serve.

Neurological developmental disorders indicate a child has not been reaching proper milestones

In healthy brain development, children should reach various milestones.

If they fail to do so, signs and symptoms vary and can include:

  • Discoordination
  • Inability to play sports
  • Balance issues
  • Frequent falls
  • Cognitive issues
  • Hard time reading
  • Issues with attention, focus, and concentration
  • Issues with memory and recall
  • Difficulty processing information and double tasking

These things happen because the brain is not developing appropriately.

We’re going to go through these concepts and I’ll teach you how to evaluate patients with developmental disorders.

I will share the most current research and show you how to personalize protocols and plans to optimize your patients’ brains.

ADD and ADHD: What are they and what causes them?

Many children today are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

What exactly are these disorders and and what causes them?

In the world of neurology, it’s pretty simple. ADD and ADHD are due to frontal lobe developmental delays. The frontal lobe is involved in focus, attention, and concentration. When a child’s frontal lobe is not developing appropriately, they don’t have the neurological endurance to focus and are easily distracted.

Hyperactivity occurs in some of these children because the frontal striatal projection, which activates an area of the brain that allows you to dampen impulses, is not functioning properly. As a result, it’s very difficult for them to sit still and focus in class.

In the standard health care model, the current treatment for ADHD is to prescribe very addictive stimulants. For a short period time, this works.

But studies show that in the long run, these children become addicted to the medication. By the fourth or fifth year of treatment their symptoms are not any better than unmedicated youth with ADHD.

The only way to effectively treat these patients is to address the frontal lobe. Treatment strategies can involve lifestyle, metabolic, and nutritional factors, as well as various things to stimulate and activate their frontal lobe — things I will teach you in this course.

What are the underlying causes of autism?

Research shows very clear and distinctive features of autistic brains compared to neurotypical brains.

Brain inflammation

Children with autism have brains in a heightened state of inflammation. The brain’s immune cells, or microglia, are overactive in autistic brains, making these children more prone to inflammatory triggers. These inflammatory responses impact neurodevelopment, synaptic activity, synaptic pruning, and other aspects of brain development.

Brain autoimmunity

Studies show many children with autism produce antibodies to their cerebellum and myelin tissue.

Abnormal brain development

We also know that their brain white and gray matter do not develop properly.

 

At the end of the day, it is a vicious cycle of abnormal neuroendocrine immune responses perpetuating improper brain development.

As a clinician, you need to understand the various mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology of autism and be able to develop clinical strategies to reduce inflammatory and autoimmune expression.

We’re going to cover these mechanisms and treatment strategies in great detail in this course.

Understanding the role of infection…

…the rates of PANDAS and PANS are actually much greater than the rates of autism!

One of the most common causes of immediate onset of neuropsychiatric disorders and developmental delays in children is infection.

These mechanisms are known as PANDAS and PANS. PANDAS stands for pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome associated with streptococcus, and PANS for pediatric acute-onset of neuropsychiatric syndrome.

This happens when antibodies produced in response to an infection cross react with brain tissue. Specifically, they’ve been found to react to D1 and D2 dopamine receptors.

Symptoms can include severe fear, hallucinations, movement disorders, tics, doing dangerous things such as jumping from a moving car, and other symptoms that are deeply frightening and stressful for parents.

The rates of PANDAS and PANS are actually much greater than the rates of autism. While there appears to be greater focus on treatment for ADD and ADHD, many children suffering from PANDAS or PANS are overlooked in the healthcare system.

In this course we will go into great depth to understand the mechanisms involved with PANDAS and PANS and how to develop treatment applications.

The role of maternal health in childhood developmental disorders

Poor maternal health, prenatal health, and preconception health are significant risk factors for childhood developmental disorders such as autism, dyslexia, ADD, or ADHD.

Good maternal and prenatal health goes far beyond just taking folic acid and B12.

The health of the mother’s immune system during fetal development is critical when looking at developmental disorders. It’s common to see a family in which multiple siblings all suffer from the same childhood development disorder.

One of the possibilities is a heightened and unmanaged state of maternal inflammation or autoimmunity during pregnancy.

In fact, numerous studies have found fetal brain antibodies during pregnancy as a predictive factor in identifying autism.

In this course, we will look at the research around the maternal health variables in relation to the risk of childhood developmental disorders.

Testimonials about the Kharrazian Institute courses

– Carri

The very first course I attended with Dr. Kharrazian was his Functional Endocrinology course back in 2003 and boy did that ever rock my world. His Kharrazian Institute Neuroinflammation course just did the same thing… but on a MUCH larger scale. It’s a total game changer. Paradigm shifting. I’m 20+ years in practice and I’ve noticed patients are getting so much harder to treat, with much more complex and chronic issues, and now I have a much better understanding why and what to do about it! Dr. K — thank you for putting this revolutionary information together!

– Christopher

I’ve practiced 23 years and one of my biggest pet peeves was “shooting blind.” By this I mean, “It’s been determined by years of clinical use that such and such a remedy is good for the treatment of X.” I always felt inadequate, exposed, and unsure of the variables. I can’t express in words the degree of appreciation I have for your dedication to determining mechanisms, researching studies, and most importantly breaking down this disparate information into readily accessible and mostly easy to understand, maps of malfunctioning physiology. I have found it invaluable. As you repeatedly stressed at your Functional Neurology Seminars program in the past, it’s sloppy clinical work to proceed with treatment until a clear picture of where the dominos fell first is figured out, so the appropriate treatment is arrived at. A million thanks to a fabulous contributor.

– Steven

This seminar was more eye opening about why some of these chronic failures we’ve all had as practitioners need more of a neuro-metabolic approach and to give yourself and the patient time and give realistic expectations so we both don’t get burned out or disappointed. That was huge for me. Thanks Dr. Kharrazian.

– Diego

This has been a freaking gorgeous course. Looking forward to the digestive health course in September.

– Xavier

What a blessing to have been able to follow that neuroinflammation course. Full of scientific data but lots of clinical applications that are very helpful for practitioners. I’m very happy to be able to follow that course since nothing is available like this in France. This should be taught in med school. Thank you Dr. Datis Kharrazian!

– Judy

What a brilliant lecture and very clinical. Hammering home the points and reviewing while we went along really prepared me for the exam. So practical and I will be attending the next two in the series. Very well done. Really can’t say enough good things today. Thanks to everyone involved to pull it off and make livestream possible for me here in Canada.

– Greg

Dr. Kharrazian has literally given me hope and if I could use one word to describe my weekend it would be “PROFOUND”. I am truly grateful for you!!!

– Lapis

Thanks for the excellent, clinically translatable course; with much appreciation for the lucid organization and abundant supportive documents.
