Weekend Intensives

One weekend each month we offer series of lessons for children. Having multiple lessons in this short period of time allows their young nervous systems to absorb and integrate the critical information provided through the 4-6 NeuroMovement® lessons they receive during the weekend.

This is a highly effective approach and often results in dramatic improvement.

 

We offer workshops for parents, caregivers, and teachers and we are available for presentations and workshops at schools. We attend IEP meetings and consult with your child's education team.

What does it mean for a child with special needs?

 

A newborn baby generates many random movements as they explore their world. Watch a typical baby -- they reach, twitch and kick almost constantly. They're experimenting to learn what happens when they make a move.Their brain gets critical sensory information from their experiments and learns to form patterns. Patterns later become skills.

 

A child with special needs often can't generate the wide variety of movements needed grow and develop higher functions such as sitting, standing, walking, or talking. Even the nuanced expression of feelings and complex thought processes requires this kind of skill development.

 

With gentle, guided movements we provide the child with sensory information they weren't able to generate for themselves. We meet them where they are, and stay connected with them as we invite
them to explore new options. As they experience this process, new movement patterns are created and boost the child's development

                               -- physically, emotionally and cognitively.

NeuroMovement®  works because of the brain's ability to change, regardless of how old we are or the developmental challenges we face. This is called brain plasticity.
