CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
Children learn about themselves and the world through movement. There is mounting evidence that stimulation in the form of movement is needed during infancy and childhood to achieve the precision of an adult brain.
A child’s constant and varied movement provides information to their brain that creates billions of new neural connections. In children with special needs, this process can be derailed so the child experiences fewer permutations of movement than a typically developing baby.
I use NeuroMovement® to provide the permutations in movement your child’s brain needs to create new neural connections that over time become organized into successful patterns of movement and thought, emotional regulation and social interactions.
The gentle approach of this method does not try to “fix” your child by, for example, repeatedly “stretching” tight muscles, behavioral conditioning, or asking your child to sit, stand, walk, or talk when they’re unable to do so. Instead the focus is shifted to connecting rather than “fixing”, and to tapping into your child’s potential for learning.
NeuroMovement® can help children with a diverse array of neurological conditions, including:
Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and ADD
Cerebral Palsy CP
Birth related issues
