The gentle nature of CranioSacral Therapy (CST) makes this modality a safe mode of treatment for children. It is very effective for newborns and babies with misshapen heads, and newborns who do not latch on well to nurse. Children all along the spectrum of autism and learning disabilities, including ADD, ADHD, dyslexia and discalcula also respond well to CST. Other neurological problems that have benefitted from CST include children with cerebral palsy, plagiocephaly, synostosis and seizure disorders.
The number of children who have Sensory Integration Dysfunction/"Sensory Processing Disorder" (SPD) is growing and therapists have reported positive outcomes from the use of CranioSacral Therapy. Other common dysfunctions and disorders often seen among CST pediatric clients include genetic anomalies, chromosomal defects, allergies, immune system dysfunction and structural issues
