Welcome to Tinsley House Clinic

The Tinsley House Clinic has a particular interest in the treatment of children who have previously been diagnosed with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD, OCD and Tourette’s syndrome of childhood.

The learning and behavioural disorders as we know them DO NOT exist. They do not exist as they are not conditions per se but symptoms and symptoms that will always present in patterns of comorbidity (together). You may consider that your child is suffering from dyslexia because they are struggling to read and this therefore is the most obvious symptom but the chances are that following a detailed consultation and examination that we will find that they are also displaying aspects of dyspraxia and attention deficit.

Therefore, it is essential to identify each child’s unique pattern of symptoms and to relate each individual symptom to a specific area of the brain in order that a treatment programme can be put in place that specifically addresses their own particular needs.

    Could this be the best Omega 3 supplement yet?

    While it is the case that DHA is important structurally in the brain, a consensus has emerged in the scientific and medical community that it is EPA which is the more beneficial of the omega-3 fatty acids for optimal neurological function.

Sensory Processing Disorder

This recently in vogue diagnosis has come to be my current steckenpferd (hobbyhorse) and like people talking about retained reflexes, causes me to momentarily lose the will to live.

Historically, doctors discovered the underlying cause of disorders and often named the condition after their good self. Fortunately, this does not happen so much these days but people are still coming up with all sorts of weird and wonderful new conditions for children with developmental issues that don’t fit into the current pigeonholes. It is of interest to note that the number of children said to be suffering from any of these so-called conditions depends entirely on the diagnostic criteria. Therefore, in France where they don’t use the diagnostic criteria outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) of the American Psychiatric Association, there are for instance far fewer children with so-called AD/HD. We must therefore stop labelling children with so-called conditions and look at the bigger picture of all of the symptoms they have in comorbidity (together). Once we identify all the symptoms and know where in the brain they originate from, then and only then, can we provide effective treatment.
