At NACD, we work with children that have every imaginable developmental issue in addition to typical and gifted children. Our families deal with a broad range health and related developmental issues. Each year it has become more and more evident that our environment as well as what we consume is incredibly important. Toxins that we all live with are being seen as the underlying cause of many of our health and developmental issues. Eating the proper foods, getting the necessary nutrients and avoiding toxic chemicals is becoming not just important, but vital for most of us.
Our professional staff has reviewed and put together a list of products that are worth your consideration. One of the things we have learned at NACD is that there is close relationship between our physiology and our neurology, meaning what affects our health affects how our brain works. And, the less efficiently our brains work, as with those with developmental problems the more significant becomes our health and nutrition.

I love cleaning with ozone because it destroys bacteria, viruses and funguses without any chemicals. These machines can also be used to freshen air by actually cleaning the air, not covering it up with odors. Use it in rooms, closets and cars—especially cars!
