Family Relationship Coaching

What is wrong with my child? How many nights do you spend googling? Are you desperately seeking answers? Does it feel like you have tried everything? and it’s getting worse or just playing out in different ways over and over?

What do I do when my child has learning difficulties? From about the age of 4-7 or even earlier some developmental hiccups and difficulties may become apparent. Sometimes we shrug it off as being “clumsy” or “off with the fairies”,

Many children with speech and/or language difficulties, including difficulties with reading and writing, have inefficient Auditory Processing (listening). Researchers believe that Auditory Processing Difficulties may contribute to problems with language processing and the way in which children perceive (or hear)

Why can’t my child concentrate?

Problems with the functioning of the central nervous system (CNS) indicate an underlying immaturity and can manifest the following symptoms. The thing is we often deem such symptoms as innate or part of a child’s personality. We reason that they don’t like it, they’re not interested or it’s just not their thing. We often assume that there is a lack of capacity and they have to manage or deal with it. Or we assume that it is a conscious choice and they need to take more care, apply more focus, grit, or determination. But what is really going on? These bahaviours and challenges are indicators (symptoms) that an underlying immaturity is present.

  • Clumsiness
  • Reading Problems
  • Writing Problems
  • Concentration Problems
  • Educational Under-Achievement
  • Attention Problems
  • Auditory Processing Difficulties
  • Difficulty in Physical Education
  • Difficulty Learning to Swim
  • Difficulty Riding 2 wheel Bikes
  • Difficulty Telling the Time
  • Coordination Difficulties
  • Mixed Laterality
  • Poor Eye-Hand Coordination

Problems with the functioning of the central nervous system (CNS) also frequently underlie specific learning difficulties (SpLD) or learning disability diagnoses, including:

  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia (Developmental Coordination Disorder -DCD)
  • Dyscalculia
  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
  • Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)
  • Agoraphobia
  • Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Anxiety and Panic Disorder
  • Dysgraphia – Writing Problems

The exciting truth is that we can retrain the brain.

More precisely detailed by Norman Doidge in his bestseller The brain that changes itself neuroscience is proving that brain plasticity allows for change not only in childhood but throughout our lives. Even when the central nervous system has not matured in the optimal time frame we can always go back and via experience change and adapt.

“Brain Therapy for Neonatal Reflexes & General Reflexes in Adults and Children” & The INPP method do just that.

Brain Therapy works directly with the brain via gentle touch to integrate the primitive reflexes.

The INPP method works through prescribed and deliberate movement patterns to give the brain a second chance to allow learning to happen more easily.

Often an immature central nervous system is at the base of learning & movement difficulties. Brain Therapy & the INPP method focus on why these hiccups and difficulties are there and treat the cause (immaturity in the CNS) rather than just the symptoms. Following a complete assessment for you or your child, I can evaluate and treat such symptoms and diagnoses.

When the underlying cause is identified and addressed a lot of the symptoms will disappear.
