Here’s why you might want to train:

Being involved with neurodevelopment has been life changing for me and it is likely to be the same for you.

The symptoms of learning issues have been well documented but what has been missing is an easy and effective treatment and this is what I offer. Based on science, clinical practice and research, this course is tried and tested on many many people.

Learning neurodevelopment can be slotted in to your existing practice if you are a therapist, or it can be an entirely new career. Either way, your work will be important as you will be helping people who would otherwise go untreated. At least one child in every classroom has some kind of learning issue or diagnosed label, so there are plenty of people needing you.

As a parent of a neurodiverse child I understand the issues and know what the frustrations and difficulties are. As a Scientist I was determined to help my son who was severely dyslexic. I applied my knowledge by carrying out research, I discovered neurodevelopment and was lucky enough to be taught by one of the world leaders in the field.

We will show you how to take advantage of neuroplasticity to help people with dyslexia, dypraxia, dyscalculia, ADHD, Aspergers, mutism, and other undiagnosed learning issues by giving the brain another chance to develop as it might have done the first time had it occurred optimally.

In the last 30 years there has been an explosion of research into the brain. Rita Levi Montalcini won a nobel prize in 1986 for her work with nerve growth factors. It is now known that every time we learn something new, nerve growth factors get fired and new pathways are formed. So the brain is plastic and it can be changed.

Eric Kandel, who won the Nobel Prize in 2000 for his work on memory, showed that when you keep sending a message down an axon the electric jolt that hits the nerve cell causes it to release chemicals to pass across the fluid between cells, and if you do that often enough, new dendrites will sprout from the first cell. This is only part of the scientific proof that the brain is plastic.

The brain learns from movement and development is hierarchical. That’s why if a break in development occurred in utero, birth or in infancy, that stopped those messages, developmental stages become stuck there, the child can’t move on. This results in dyslexia and the spectrum labels.

To help these we repeat the developmental stages and this is what we teach you in this course. Learning neurodevelopment is easy, and quick to grasp and apply.

You get PDFs and other supporting materials ready to start your practice and you also become part of the brainbuzzz family, with our regular conferences and get togethers. We are a close community and we stay in regular contact.
Training Dates
It takes five days to train

February 13,14,19,20,21 2016 which is during half term.

May 28,28, June 3,4,5

We work from 9.15 to 3-3.30 on the course. There is a lot to take in and you will probably need a break to digest what we have learnt.
We learn by doing, so all notes (though most students make a few more notes) are provided and printed for you so that you can practice what you are discovering.
PDFs of every stage are provided, both for the screening and for the exercises as well as the science.

If none of these dates suit you, tell me and we can create a course that does suit you.

Received a diagnosis of dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, mutism, Asperger’s?

Received a diagnosis of learning difficulties?
Unsure what to do?
Been told nothing could be done?
Need information you can rely on?
When my son was diagnosed  I had NO idea how critical vision was in behaviour, development, and learning.
 What  I learnt changed my life and that of my son. I can teach you how to help your child. what I can offer you  is most often life-altering, and at the very least helpful.

What I offer

1:1 support with your family

School-ready programme: school age does not mean school-ready. But I can show you how to achieve school-readiness.

This is a movement based programme that replicates the neurotypical stages. 

Contact me for more info, and take a look at the articles and videos on this blog.
