We take an interdisciplinary team approach where neuroscience provides guidance and personal connection and care offers support.
Research shares that the last phase of brain development, particularly that of the corpus
callosum completes its maturation at around the age of 26. Research also established that optimal mind/brain development occurs in environments where predictable empathic caregivers guide repeated structured routines, social emotional skill building opportunities in emotionally and physically safe settings. Then the thing most hoped for begins to happen; men and women become the “architect of their own brain” as they increasingly use the skills, implementing the structure on his own, allowing them to move forward independently developing a range of prefrontal/thinking skills through the gift of focused attention.
The result is an individual who has greater capacity for focused attention, which brings a sense of accomplishment and self-efficacy, which translates directly into commitment, the key elements of lasting change. When an individual experiences success they typically want to do that which brings satisfaction.
