Chiropractic works the exact same way with a child who has a disability and one who is considered normal. In a lot of cases the child with a disability will find even greater benefits. It is very important in the beginning years to have the nervous system working at optimal potential and with a disability it can be compromised. This is commonly seen when cranial distortions are present. A cranial distortion is usually associated with abnormal facial features. Depending on the disability some of these cranial/fascial distortions are more prominent.
The goal of chiropractic is always to get the nervous system working at its maximum potential. This is what facilitates the significant changes often seen after cranial adjustments in children with disabilities

It greatly depends on findings of each child and is associated with the ongoing maturation and development of a given child. Usually the response is quite quick. The speed of response is often is more time related than the frequency of adjustments. The reason for this is in developmental problems an adjustment is given and the child’s body has to catch up to it.
