Discover Glow Pediatrics: Our Mission and Services.

Dr. Eko with patients

In this enlightening episode of my podcast, I delve into the revolutionary world of early intervention and holistic pediatric care. I passionately discuss the critical importance of timely evaluations for ADHD and autism, highlighting how these can truly revolutionize a child's development. Through comprehensive and meticulous processes, my practice, Glow Pediatrics, supports families from the initial suspicion of developmental issues through to diagnosis and beyond.


Early intervention is a game-changer in the world of child development. I emphasize that timely evaluations for ADHD and autism can significantly impact a child's trajectory. By addressing developmental concerns early, children can receive the necessary support to unlock their potential. The evaluation process at Glow Pediatrics is thorough, involving forms, video submissions, and virtual appointments. This multi-step approach ensures a detailed understanding of each child's unique needs. Following a diagnosis, the next steps often include referrals to occupational therapy, speech therapy, and ABA therapy. However, the reality of waitlists can be frustrating for families eager to begin treatment.


To bridge these gaps, Glow Pediatrics is launching the Glow Circles, a support initiative designed to help children and families thrive while waiting for further services. The Glow Circles offer access to experts, including speech therapists, occupational therapists, and ABA therapists, in small group settings. This initiative provides invaluable support to parents, enabling them to ask questions and receive guidance while awaiting formal services. I envision this support network as a way to shrink the wait time between recognizing symptoms and receiving a diagnosis, ultimately ensuring that no time is wasted in addressing a child's needs.


But the episode doesn't stop there. I also delve into the integrative and holistic approaches that define the care at Glow Pediatrics. Integrative care combines conventional medical treatments with evidence-based complementary therapies to address the root causes of health issues. I explain how I evaluate a child's overall well-being, considering brain health, gut health, environment, and emotional state. By asking detailed questions about symptoms like sleep disturbances or constipation, I aim to identify and address underlying issues rather than merely prescribing medications.


This holistic approach is particularly crucial for conditions like ADHD and autism, which are brain-based disorders. I highlight the significant connection between gut health and brain health, emphasizing that addressing gut inflammation can have a profound impact on overall well-being. Specific testing and personalized care plans are essential components of this approach, allowing for tailored interventions that meet each child's unique needs.


Glow Pediatrics' commitment to fostering health and well-being from the inside out is evident in every aspect of our care. Our mission is to ensure that children and families thrive together, promoting holistic health that extends beyond mere symptom management. This episode is a must-listen for parents, caregivers, and anyone interested in the future of pediatric care.


In summary, this episode offers a comprehensive look at how early intervention and holistic approaches can revolutionize child development. From timely ADHD and autism evaluations to integrative care that addresses the root causes of health issues, Glow Pediatrics is redefining pediatric care. The introduction of the Glow Circles further exemplifies our commitment to supporting families through personalized care plans and expert guidance.


Tune in to learn how Glow Pediatrics is making a difference in the lives of children and families, ensuring that health and well-being are nurtured from the inside out.


Have a wonderful week!
