Cranial Nerve Dysfunction CND is NOT a diagnosis.  It is a functional description used to denote dysfunction, dysregulation or disruption of one or more cranial nerves in the precrawling period.
The term was coined by Michelle around 2013 in order to help parents understand the parallel symptoms they were seeing with "tongue tie" such as torticollis, head flattening, reflux, fussiness, tension, noisy breathing, poor nursing skills, etc.  It is now used widely by professionals seeking to use a unified language to describe the difficulties often seen in the precrawling baby period.   Michelle teaches a 3 day class for professionals, please contact her for more information.
