Genetic Disorders and Abnormalities


a diagnosis of a genetic disorder can be very frightening for parents...

Genetic abnormalities and disorders are common among children with special needs and developmental delays. As genetic testing improves, more and more children are diagnosed as having genetic disorders, which affect their development. While a person’s genes cannot be changed, many of the symptoms, problems and behaviors that these individuals exhibit are the result of poor neurodevelopment. If the development and function of their brain improves, the symptoms the person experiences can reduce. For children diagnosed with genetic abnormalities, often the neurodevelopmental symptoms of their disorder can include poor speech development, poor motor development, sensory problems, cognitive delays, poor coordination and depth perception, among other difficult symptoms.

The staff of Doman International has worked with children with dozens of different genetic disorders, resulting in developmental delays and special needs. They have gained a great deal of knowledge over the past 4 decades about how to help these children.

People diagnosed with many genetic disorders have shown great potential for improvement with a home-based program of stimulation and activity that improves brain development. The human brain is able to change and rewire — this process is called neuroplasticity. The Doman Method program has been designed to help the brain develop through specifically designed activities. Nearly all children improve on a home program, and their symptoms reduce, or at times, disappear. Some children with genetic abnormalities even graduate from the Doman International program and join their well peers in school. Our goal for each and every child is wellness — well enough to function like every one else, and succeed and be happy in life. Our main objective is excellent results.

If you would like to speak with a Doman International representative to learn if the Doman Method may be able to help your child and their specific condition, you can contact us here. If you have a child or loved one diagnosed with a genetic condition, you can begin a Doman Method program by attending our parent training seminar called: “The Doman Method Course: From Special Needs to Wellness.” This three day seminar teaches parents how to do a treatment program designed for maximum progress in cognitive, motor and speech development, as well as improved behavior, health and physiology.

You can join the many thousands of other families who have learned about the Doman Method and started helping their loved one. Should you have any questions about how we can help your family, you can contact Doman International worldwide representatives here.
