  • Regulatory disorders including sleep disorders, feeding problems, discipline difficulties, complicated toilet-training issues, enuresis (bedwetting), and encopresis (soiling)
  • Developmental disabilities including intellectual disabilities and autism spectrum disorders
  • Delayed development in speech, language, motor skills, and thinking ability
    Behavioral and menal health problems including mood disorders such as anxiety and depression
