How did Mind & Motion
The Mind and Motion Developmental Center in Johns Creek, Georgia was established in 2014. Mind and Motion is the only option in the Johns Creek/Forsyth area where families can find an array of specialized services dedicated to improving the lives of those with developmental and mental health disabilities.
The conceptualization of this innovative practice model was the creation of world renowned neuropsychologist, Dr. David Cantor PhD, who specializes in the treatment of clients with developmental disabilities. Dr. Cantor ran a private practice throughout the mid 90’s specializing in pediatric psychological evaluations. The children he treated had complex developmental and mental health disabilities, almost always requiring more than one discipline of therapy to achieve their greatest potential and be more successful throughout life. Dr. Cantor soon discovered through this process, that the families he worked with could not get access to multiple therapies which meant stifling the child’s improvement. The three main obstacles these families were facing were financial, logistical, and lack of communication between providers. The multiple therapies were either not accepted by the insurance, the different therapy clinics were too far away from one another or the multiple practitioners providing these therapies were not communicating clinical info effectively to best serve the patient.
Dr. Cantor’s commitment to resolving these issues and dedication to enhancing the lives of his patients regardless of status became what is now the mission of Mind and Motion Developmental Center.
“Mind and Motion Developmental Center strives to assist our clients in recognizing, increasing, and achieving their optimized potential for greater success in everyday life. Mind and Motion offers an all-encompassing set of integrative health services focused on enhancing developmental potential for every individual we treat.
