About neu·ro·plas·tic·i·ty
[noor-oh-pla-stis-i-tee, nyoor]
Capacity of the nervous system to develop new neuronal connections: the brain's natural ability to form new connections to compensate for injury.

HANDLE combines an understanding of neuroplasticity and the interplay among mind, body and environment to help the brain gently change itself. It’s designed to enhance neurological systems that are causing learning or life difficulties, without force or judgment. HANDLE gets to the root of what some might consider problematic behaviors by listening and observing, not pushing or judging. It can assist children and adults labeled with, but not limited to:

ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism, Traumatic Brain Injury, Tourette's Syndrome, Anxiety, Depression, Seizure Disorders, ODC, ODD, PDD-NOS, Issues of Aging, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Genetic Disorders, and more.
