How we help you to help your child.
- Individuals and families
Individuals and families
The BrainChild Developmental Program can be accessed by children and their parent(s) or carers. We explain the details of the program and how it works. We also listen to your story. After all, you know your child better than anyone!
Every child we meet is different. Most of them are able to take part easily in the playful approach of the assessment. If not, we have other observational methods.
The Neurodevelopmental Assessment at The Brainchild Centre.
- A physical, developmental assessment
- Interpreting your child’s developmental history
- A behavioural assessment
- The explanation and interpretation of the results and their impact on your child.
- Teaching you the first activities for practice at home.
We will develop an individual reflex profile and tailored program ready for your next visit.
An important part of the sessions is training you, the parent(s) to play the home-games with your child. You and your child will have a group of activities to practice daily at home. You will visit monthly for a face to face consultation for progress to be evaluated and new activities taught.
This takes into account the way the brain works. Little and often is the key to change. Over a period of a month, daily practice can create positive change.
There are online options for the monthly followup sessions for families. If you live a distance away and would prefer follow up sessions to be online or remotely that can be arranged. Most clients prefer a mix of the two if they have far to travel.
Contact us if you would like to know more.
Groups and organisations
We can provide a group program at an agreed suitable location, organised by an organisation (for example, a National Autistic Society local group or a Parent group) There are several options for the way in which this course is organised. Contact us to discuss the options.
Each group member is individually assessed at The BrainChild Centre
Contact us for details when you have considered the options.
Lots of Fun
Both options are lots of fun. However there are more opportunities for the children to develop social skills in the group sessions. Parents also value the support they gain from each other. NAS groups have found group participation very valuable. Children make great gains in social communication and friendships. Read here.
In both cases the parental practice at home is an important aspect.
Families who choose to use Zoom consultations for some or all of the sessions like the convenience and and time-saving and are happy with this process. We are so used to using digital methods since Covid! We match this with communication by WhatsApp to see short videos and discuss progress between sessions.
Our online animated EBO for Home will be available in 2024. It’s great fun! Contact us to find out more.
