Building Better Brains

( in children and parents )

Dr. Leah Light is regarded as a cutting-edge Neurodevelopmental Specialist that has an uncanny ability to uncover the true root of the client’s challenge and making recommendations for the mind, body, and entire family dynamic. We offer assessments and interventions not available anywhere else in the tri-county area. We are unique because the assessments we utilize are focused on pinpointing where the root cause of a specific challenge lies. Our focus is not simply to identify a problem, but to uncover its origin in order to assign an effective, targeted intervention. Our goal is to improve functionality overall instead of masking the presenting problems. Unlike other approaches that address only the highest levels of the thinking brain, we use a bottom up approach that mimics the natural course of brain development.

Special Programs for
Child Development Needs

I thought I would share a HUGE win with you all as you have been instrumental in Johnny’s (our family’s) journey. Johnny has had struggles since our move to Texas and in his new school. His new school uses Conscious Discipline and has been so willing to work with us and to help Johnny in his new environment. He uses a sensory walk a few times a day and the school has placed safe spaces in many locations for all students to use. We have also been doing his massages and enrolled Johnny in martial arts.
