NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS UNIT

The Neurodevelopmental Disorders Unit is staffed by professionals from the fields of psychology, neuropsychology and paediatrics, with more than 15 years of experience in child and adolescent diagnosis and intervention. It includes the Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Unit (UneSAF), which has been operational at barnaclínic+ since 2018.

Neurodevelopmental disorders are characterised by deficits that affect the emotional, social and academic functioning of the individual. They share a large number of symptoms (symptomatic comorbidity) and in terms of treatment, they benefit from similar intervention strategies and programmes. Even so, the therapeutic objective of the unit is to design intervention programmes tailored to the individual needs of each person.

DIAGNOSIS OF NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS

The diagnosis of Neurodevelopmental Disorders begins with an exhaustive interview with the patient and with his/her parents or legal guardians. The purpose of the interview is to collect relevant clinical information on the difficulties faced with a view to designing a good intervention plan.

This information will be complemented with that obtained from behavioural scales and neuropsychological tests.


TREATMENT OF NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS

Neurocognitive and behavioural disorders have a significant impact on the life of the sufferer and their family, and therefore require professional support of varying degrees to overcome or compensate for them. The prognosis depends, to a large extent, on the adequacy of the assessment process and the intervention programme.

The different treatment options for Neurodevelopmental Disorders are cognitive, behavioural and/or psychoeducational.

The intervention tools used by the professionals of the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Unit are based on scientific evidence and combine different application channels (manipulative, audiovisual, etc.) in order to plan dynamic therapeutic sessions.

TEACHING AND RESEARCH

In addition to its clinical work, the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Unit is active in the scientific field with the conception of an innovative high-tech tool, called Mental XR®.

Mental XR® is a project that was conceived as a diagnostic app for FASD, and for intervention in FASD, ADD/ADHD, ASD and BD, which undoubtedly improves adherence to the treatment of Neurodevelopmental Disorders through Immersive Virtual Reality.

It is also involved in research through the Grup de Recerca Infància i Entorn (GRIE - Childhood and Environment Research Group), with more than 15 years of experience in the field, and is a national and international benchmark in clinical research on alcohol exposure during pregnancy.
