The following “red flags” may indicate your child is in danger of having Neurotypical Spectrum Disorder (NSD). If your child displays any of the following, take them immediately to an allistic or non- neurotypical pediatrician or family doctor for evaluation. Caught early enough many children have shown dramatic improvement. Studies show that intensive early behavioral interventions can and do help these children flourish giving them the opportunity to become honest, creative, non compliant thinkers who will not be overly concerned with amassing wealth by any means necessary or driven by self-serving desires and wants.

It is imperative that you seek help for your child if you suspect they are at risk. Though Neurotypical Spectrum Disorder can be mildly to severely disabling, NT Speaks has numerous resources for families whose children may be suffering and afflicted. You will be relieved to know NT Speaks employs not a single neurotypical and no Neurotypicals are on their advisory boards. In fact we do not consult, listen to, or speak with any who are on the neurotypical spectrum as we have learned they have a tendency to be dishonest, will do anything to be “liked” and are almost always self-serving. We are a non-profit whose goal is to cure neurotypicals. All our research dollars go toward funding pre-natal testing and cures for this terrible crisis our world is currently facing. Do not let your child become a burden on an already beleaguered society. Let us help you. Call us at 999-9999-9999 (en Espanol 999-9999-9990) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
