This is a creative movement classes based on animal movements, story telling, and the science of neurodevelopment. As your children giggle and creepy crawl around they will be guided through a series of movements that are key to brain development and impacting mental skills such as reading, writing and self regulation.
I can come by invitation to present either one of the workshops and/or classes above day or evening. The cost would depend on the group of participants.
For Teachers and Caregivers
Do you recognize the symptoms of learning and behavioral challenges but struggle to identify the why (cause) or how to help your student ?
THE WHY? In this 2 hrs workshop I introduce primitive reflexes and offer a checklist of what you can observe in your student if these reflexes are still present. This checklist is a tool that provides clues to underlying immaturities in the functioning of the nervous system, due to retained primitive reflexes, that have been documented as causes of learning and behavioral challenges.
THE HOW YOU CAN HELP ? 10 to 15 minutes of daily neurodevelopmental movements to help mature the nervous system has been shown to improve learning and behavior in whole classrooms. In this half day workshop i can show teachers how to implement this with their students from preschool to grade 6.
