Challenges with siblings, bedtimes, strong emotions, school, fill in the blank... Parenting can be the most stressful time, when it is touted as the most joyful. It is a fast track to getting your PhD in personal growth & development. I have been there. And, I can help. We can talk about those dirty, little secrets.

"If you or your child suffer from OCD or other anxiety disorders, you're not alone. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness, yet most sufferers don't receive proper, evidence-based treatment. OCD/anxiety can cause problems socially, academically, professionally, and create chaos with family members. The good news is that there is help. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has repeatedly shown to be the most effective approach for defeating OCD and anxiety. CBT creates new neuro-pathways by changing the way you think and behave. It's basically exercise for the brain. The more you flex those brain muscles, the stronger you become."

Developmental Disorders Therapists
'Developmental disorder' is the collective term used to describe the disorders, first diagnosed in a child's infancy or early childhood, which then become more apparent as the kids develop during their childhood and into their teens and adolescence. Like all labels, it means little and is open to interpretation.

The developmental disorders are categorized in to two areas: specific developmental disorders, which affect discrete parts of a kid's development, and the pervasive disorders (e.g. PDD Los Angeles), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in Los Angeles; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in Los Angeles.

The pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) include autism, asperger's, attention-deficit and disruptive behavior disorders.

There are other issues that can affect childhood development, which are included in the developmental disorders--such as feeding and eating disorders, elimination disorders, separation anxiety disorder, and reactive attachment disorder.

Look here for help with children, kids or teens with developmental disorders in Los Angeles or Los Angeles developmental issues. Try a Los Angeles child therapist, Los Angeles facility or Los Angeles treatment program. These therapists provide help with kids' developmental issues in Los Angeles, child development, teen development and adolescent development.
