What is BrainChild and Why Does it Work?

Parents are often concerned when their child excels in some areas of development but struggles with the simplest of tasks. A child may be achieving at a high level in school subjects yet cannot use a knife and fork, or can excel at sport but finds reading difficult. Many are worried by a child’s reluctance to write when they have good language skills and imagination or have irrational meltdowns and aggression when they are generally sensitive and caring.

These confusing patterns relate to early brain development that is still active. Each of the above issues relate to the persistence of different primitive infant reflexes.

The child cannot control it! It is not their fault.

Our program is designed to achieve change to enable a child to learn and succeed, physically, academically, emotionally and socially. It works on the whole brain whether a child has a diagnosis or not.

If you would like to discuss your child’s needs, or find out more about a personalised program,  virtual conferencing on Zoom is a free alternative to the phone call that we normally offer.

Contact us, or complete the Checklist to book a phone call or online Zoom  time slot.

 Is your child struggling?

Did you know that all aspects of your child’s development can be affected by persisting brain function  that is present even before birth?

This limits the brain. It limits your child’s development.

Unfortunately, this can also result in low self-esteem, withdrawal, avoidance behaviour or extreme responses that gain the label of behaviour problems or may even be blamed on parenting.

The human brain is complex. Before birth, it begins to function using primitive reflexes. This fundamental development that is useful to a baby should be replaced by higher level functioning that allows conscious control.

If the infant reflexes persist they can influence a child’s future development in all areas of functioning. Learning and life can become a struggle.

Your child cannot control the developmental problems – They are automatic. They relate to reflexes from babyhood known as primitive  infant reflexes.  These difficulties are different expressions of immature brain function.

We can help to release your child from the limitations so that your amazing child can shine through.
