We were referred to Yvette as our then nine-year old daughter was
having behavioral challenges at school -- she found it difficult to sit
still, stay within her space, and focus on her work. It seemed that she
was uncomfortable in her own body. As a result, our daughter felt
anxious and frustrated when it came to learning new things, such as
During the assessment, Yvette guided our daughter through numerous
tests to determine the root causes of her difficulties. Yvette's
patience and attention to detail as well as her ability to relate to and
connect with our child made it possible for our daughter to be at ease
and follow Yvette's instructions. Yvette determined that some of our
daughter's reflexes had not integrated, so she created a plan which
contained a series of exercises to be done at home. Exercises consisted
of a series of repetitive movements taking approximately a half hour 4-5
days a week. A flow was created, as one movement lead to the next. We
were surprised at the initial thought process required to do the
movements, but the positive outcome was well worth the effort. In
addition, Yvette provided further resources and referrals, all of which
proved to be very helpful.
Over the course of six months, Yvette visited to observe our child's
progress and to implement additional exercises to support her
development. The transformation we witnessed during this time was truly
astounding. Our daughter went from shying away from reading and
challenging school work to discovering her love of reading and the
ability to sit and focus, to fully engage with the task at hand.
Reflecting back, we realize it would have been advantageous to have had
this assessment done when our daughter was an infant or toddler. We
would recommend an assessment by Yvette to anyone with young children.
Yvette's attention to detail, knowledge and wisdom reflect her passion
for and commitment to helping children reach their full potential. We
will always be grateful for Yvette's support.
