Lessons About the Power of Neuroplasticity with Dr. Peter Scire

Join me in a conversation with Dr. Peter Scire, as he explains various lessons about the power of neuroplasticity.

Dr. Peter Scire has dedicated his academic and clinical career over the past 15 years to working with complex neurological disorders in both adults and children. He received his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life University as well as extensive post-doctoral training in functional neurology with concentrations in childhood developmental disorders, vestibular rehabilitation, and brain injury rehabilitation.

In addition to his functional neurology training, Dr. Scire has amassed thousands of hours of continued education in the areas of functional immunology, functional endocrinology and advanced concepts in neurochemistry and nutrition over the past decade. Since 2004, Dr. Scire has collaborated with Dr. Robert Melillo the Founder of Brain Balance Centers and Hemispheric Integration Therapy.

After a decade of working with children, Dr. Scire established the Scire Integrative Health Center in Atlanta which specializes in complex neurological and metabolic disorders utilizing the latest advancements in neurological rehabilitation and diagnostic testing. He is a founding member of the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation. Dr. Scire served as the President of IAFNR from 2015-2016. When away from his practice Dr. Scire is Dad to his soon to be 18-year-old son Nicholas and his 13-year-old daughter Emma.

What You Need to Know About the Cerebellum’s Role in Cognition and Emotion

I’m Tara Hunkin, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Certified GAPS Practitioner, Restorative Wellness Practitioner, mother, and founder of My Child Will Thrive. I am passionate about helping parents like you because I have been in your shoes. My Child Will Thrive is the resource I wish I had found years ago.

After 13 years — and counting — researching, applying therapies and techniques, succeeding and learning from mistakes, the journey to recover my daughter from multiple neurodevelopmental disorders (dyspraxia, sensory processing disorder, general learning disability, dyslexia, auditory processing disorder…) has been an eye-opening, soul-searching, sometimes lonely trip.

My learning never ends. Whether formally, through courses and conferences, or informally, by reading, listening and research, I am on a mission to transform what I’ve learned into useful, practical solutions for parents who are where I was at the beginning of my journey — confused, determined, scared and hopeful.

Knowing more about your child’s health and the possible underlying causes is the key to finding the path to recovery. Envisioning your child’s total recovery (whatever that means to you) is, dare I say, a reasonable and necessary part of the process. Knowledge is power, hope is fuel.
