Dyslexia, dsypraxia, dyscalculia, attention deficit and executive dysfunction are just some of the neurobiological conditions being diagnosed in our children today.

Without diagnosis and appropriate treatment they cannot improve. Our panel discusses what that means and what parents can do to help and support their children.
