Bring out the best in your quirky child?

June 14, 2016

 

 

 

Quirky kids are my passion. They have this wonderful creative potential but they often struggle and under-perform educationally. It is most rewarding to see them gain skills and strategies to help them cope and flourish. If a child reports that they got player of the day at soccer ,felt confident giving a speech or their writing or drawing has improved, I know that I have  facilitated positive change in that child’s life.
This is usually carried out over a series of sessions and involves parents/caregivers  in doing a playful  movement programme at home to reinforce the changes.
Here are some of outcomes experienced after a series of sessions.
• Learning can become easier and faster ( eg. Reading, writing, physical coordination) as the underlying physiology around learning becomes more efficient.
• Challenges around Learning and development may reduce.
• Retained primitive reflexive movements are integrated i.e No longer observable. . These can interfere with learning and moving.
• Decrease in sensory overload, sound, taste, tactile defensiveness.
• Improvement in balance.  
• Positive changes to fine motor and handwriting skills.
• Increased ability to focus and attend to and complete tasks.
• Improved performance in sports/whole body movement e.g. soccer, swimming, dancing, martial arts, the arts and drama.
• Decrease in ‘explosive’ behaviour
• Overall increase in risk-taking behaviour, confidence and calmness.
 
Best results are achieved with commitment to a daily movement programme, with the parent being actively involved. Sessions with Janet are spaced 3-4 weeks apart and typically over a 6 month period.
