Brain Development 101 Class
What you’ll learn
We look at every level and pathway of the brain. You’ll gain an understanding of why your child does what they do, and most importantly, how you – as their parent – can help them.
Sensory pathways—how does their brain receive and then process sound, texture, touch, temperature, smell, taste, and visual information.
Reflexes—Motor skills, both fine motor (handwriting, manipulating small objects, dressing, etc.) and gross motor (walking, running, jumping, catching, throwing, etc.) are dependent on reflexes.
Organization Foundation—The Mobility Pathway is one of the main organizers of the brain. Specifically, crawling (on the belly) organizes the pons. Creeping (on hands and knees) organizes the midbrain. This organization not only helps the sensory pathways function, but also motor coordination and memory.
Nutrition is an important component for every brain, but for those with challenges it is particularly important. Between 50% and 90% of your neurotransmitters are manufactured in your digestive system. Appropriate nutrition is key for the chemical balance in your child’s brain.
Understanding the Brain Makes the Difference
Once you understand:
- Where in the brain there is disorganization
- How to target stimulation to those specific regions of the brain
- Why certain programs work to improve certain brain functions
It becomes much easier for you to:
- provide a daily program designed for your child’s progress (daily = 5 days a week)
- implement an excellent nutrition program to boost brain processing power
- see step-by-step progress
As you help your child become proficient in these programs, you are organizing, stimulating and integrating brain function as a foundation for success!
Taking the Brain Development 101 Seminar is the next step to gaining the necessary understanding of why your child does what they do, and most importantly, how you – as their parent – can help them.
