Ted Talk – Aditi Shankardass: A second opinion on developmental disorders

06 Feb

Very short talk compared to the very long title but worth every second…

From the Ted website:

Developmental disorders in children are typically diagnosed by observing behavior, but Aditi Shankardass suggests we should be looking directly at brains. She explains how one EEG technique has revealed mistaken diagnoses and transformed children’s lives.

Aditi Shankardass is pioneering the use of EEG technology to give children with developmental disorders their most accurate diagnosis.

    As a parent of a child who was diagnosed at the age of 9 with a Non-Verbal Learning disorder and ADHD, I found this TED talk to be extremely interesting. I wish I would have known about it years ago. Thanks for sharing.

    This happened to my daughter. She was diagnosed with mild-moderate Autism, with sleep disturbances . After 5 abnormal EEG’s, she was officially diagnosed with Epilepsy. She was put on Trileptal, she’s been on it for a month now, and she is sleeping 12-13hrs a night. Her language has also increased, as well as social skills. I have this video to thank, and of course a very special friend that introduced this video to me. Whenever I am able too, I share this video with friends that has children with learning disabilities. It has happened to my daughter, it can happen to anyone.
