Introductory Offer for July and August: 10 Euro Discount Off Your First Session
My area of speciality in Child Development and Learning Challenges are unique in Malta. I help children and adults overcome physical, emotional, behavioural, social and/or academic challenges so they can be the best they can be in learning, in business, in sport and in life generally. My techniques are simple, natural, extremely effective and provide life-long results.
My aim is to share my knowledge and experience to help improve as many children as possible who need help in being able to learn confidently, easily and with success so they have more choices and further opportunities during, and after, their education. I guarantee results if my advice and methods are followed.
The important message I would like to share with parents and teachers: Children, and adults, with learning challenges and developmental issues can be improved at any time, and at any age, no matter what ability. Neural connections can be created and strengthened easily using developmental movements. Why is movement so important? A baby needs to learn to master movement in the first few weeks and months. This begins from movement in the womb, movement to help the natural birthing process and learning further movements after birth to develop the central nervous system. Movement develops each of the senses. Movement creates the connections throughout the brain. Movement inhibits each of the reflexes. Without movement, none of this will happen and will leave the brain and senses immature and the cause of most learning challenges.
Retained Primitive reflexes much past 4 years old are usually the cause of most developmental and learning challenges, social, behavioural and academic issues that can be improved at any age, but of course, the earlier the better so as not to miss out on important stages of education and learning.
Trying to teach children who are struggling with learning before they have the physical resources to be able to learn will only create more stress to an already immature and under developed system. Starting to teach from a ‘top down’ approach can be difficult, time consuming, frustrating and costly. First, we must develop the physical foundations, making sure the brain and senses are sufficiently developed and connected for the sensory information to reach areas of the brain to be processed. We must make sure every child has the resources in place to be able to learn, so a ‘bottom up’ approach is the way forward for EVERY child. This is essential if teaching and learning are going to be an easier, enjoyable, adventurous and successful process.
I offer One to One sessions, work with and support Schools, Businesses and Sport, and I also offer unique, professional and experiential training courses in sensory and brain integration.
The short video clip above explains, simply and effectively, the process of what is developmentally necessary for every child to have the resources in place to be able to learn with ease and enjoyment. You will see a good example of a child who is struggling, and why. Teachers will recognise many of these signs in most classrooms.
The primitive and postural reflexes are not understood enough, or addressed, by most professionals and yet they are the key for every child to have the resources to be ‘ready and able’ to learn for life. If children do not get a good education because they do not have the resources to be able to learn and earn good grades, their future opportunities and choice of jobs are going to be limited.
Children, and adult’s, ‘labelled’ with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD and Autism, and conditions like Cerebral Palsy, Developmental / Global delays, Mental health issues, Trauma and Brain injury will have some retained reflexes. Any of these challenges can be improved in a simple and natural way with profound and life-long results.
The Rhythmic Movement and Brain Gym programmes I offer my clients at my practice, or in Schools, Businesses and in Sport are two powerful movement based programmes that help make profound improvements to sensory and brain development, no matter what age, level of ability, or disability, they may have.
Schools / Universities / SpLD teachers / Education Authorities, I would like to introduce you to ‘The Movement Programme’. This has been specifically designed to help children aged between 8 – 13+ years to improve literacy skills and end of year results with clearly proven and lasting results. The programme, designed in 12 modules, is used in schools for 15 – 20 minutes every day, 5 days of the week for 12 weeks. It can also be accessed by parents at home to follow with their children and other family members. Please contact me if you would like to access this successful programme. Please click on the video below to learn more about it. I know the creator of this programme personally.
I offer a range of unique and affordable training courses for anyone wanting to understand why learning challenges occur, recognise the signs and symptoms of retained reflexes seen in most classrooms and how to integrate each of them. If you are interested, please contact me. The courses are experiential and hands-on and will also give you the opportunity to learn about your own reflexes at the same time. These are two of the best self development programmes I have ever experienced and would like to share with you.
I give talks and demonstrations about the reflexes and how to recognise the signs in the classroom that most teachers will recognise. Please contact me if this interests you.
On the Testimonial page there is a comment from a School’s Inspection Service in the UK. Also there are comments from some clients, parents and people that have been on my training courses and have used the techniques back in their schools.
