Technically, Down syndrome is not an illness. It is a genetic condition wherein an individual is born with an extra chromosome called chromosome 21, which results to a change in the person’s physical features and cognitive abilities. Through the years people with Down syndrome can develop certain health issues and learning impairments or delays. To address the condition head on, children typically undergo educational screenings before they start going to school. The tests determine the severity or classification of Down syndrome.
In the United States about 1 out of 700 babies are born with Down syndrome, which makes it the most common genetic disorder in the country. Different factors such as age of the parents and family history contribute of the likelihood, but it is still mostly random. Upon birth there are physical manifestations of the disorder, such as flat facial features, short neck, bulging tongue, smaller than average head and ears, and more.
Typically, children with Down syndrome develop certain learning difficulties such as speech issues, impaired hearing and vision, weak auditory memory, short attention span, impulsive behavior, and more. Medical conditions, i.e. congenital heart diseases, cataracts, and obesity, can begin to show. These hurdles, coupled with each child’s specific needs, calls for a more specialized approach when it comes to education.

Brain Sprints takes pride in the 25+ years we have spent developing, and consistently innovating the NeuroDevelopmental Approach for training children with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. We are one of the very few companies in Texas to offer this type of customized service. We stand out even more because of our high level of dedication to help every child, regardless of their disability and struggles. That is why families come from all over the United States to receive services. The unique nature of Brain Sprints’ application of the NeuroDevelopmental Approach is that we take into consideration the whole child through the areas of sensory input (auditory, visual and tactile) and motor output (gross motor, fine motor and language). The child is evaluated in these 6 areas and tracked through 9 levels of development. An individualized brain training program is then crafted from our 1,000+ activity database. Instead of focusing on labels and limiting your child’s potential based on what a dyslexia label dictates, we look at your child as an individual who has boundless potentials and untapped skills and talents. It is our job to help you and your child discover this way to a brighter future.
