The parents who adopt the Parents, Take CHARGE! (PTC) treatment program fall into two categories – parents who are considering seeking a diagnosis and those that have already had their children diagnosed by a healthcare practitioner. Some of the most common diagnoses of those children who have already been diagnosed before coming to the PTC Program are ADD, ADHD, OCD, ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder), ASD (autism spectrum disorder), (ODD), depression, bi-polar, amongst others.
The Parents, Take CHARGE program does not concern itself with such diagnostic labels. These labels are counter-productive to the true healing of the child. The goal of the PTC program is to teach parents not to seek and treat the label but rather to identify and treat the root cause of the child’s problems. Listed below are some symptoms that could offer clues to the possible underlying root causes for the learning, behavior and mood challenges your child is displaying. Clusters and combinations of certain symptoms will help identify the particular organs and systems that are not functioning correctly. This list is not comprehensive and is just offered as an example.
