Ground-breaking work with neuroplastic (brain learning) techniques is yielding results that are re-writing the book on what is possible in autism disorders and brain development.
Autism spectrum, dyslexia and developmental disorders are complex, and there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. Rewiring the brain is a step by step process; there are no quick fixes, but steady progress can be made.
We begin with a comprehensive intake to determine which brain systems are struggling, and what therapies are the most likely to yield results. We will then send you a reading list so you can better understand the various approaches. This is a free service.
Parents know what is working and what isn’t, where their child struggles and where they don’t. A bit of self-education on brain training principles goes a long way in determining the best way forward.
We recommend an integrated ‘back to basics’ approach; retraining the brain from the ground up. Neurofeedback might be one component of the programme, but is seldom the place to begin.
In broad terms, our approach has three stages. None are easy; all take time. Patience and dedication to the process are key.
WHOLE BRAIN APPROACH
- Nutrition and Digestive health programme to reduce toxins and help restore neurotransmitter balance. The goal is to get the brain chemistry into a position where learning and change comes easier. Hypobaric oxygen can also be helpful at this stage.
- Sensory Integration to train basic sensory skills that may have been missed or incomplete in early brain development. The iLs may be a component in this stage, and at home brain development exercises can make a big difference.
- Neurofield to help deeply entrenched brain patterns become more flexible, and neurofeedback to help restore function, emotional balance, increase processing speed and improve communication between brain areas.
When it comes time to access our services, we do have remotely operated home sessions available.
