My approach is to work directly with issues raised by dyslexia – at a body level- REDUCE anxiety and stress and at the mind level- dealing with the perceptual confusions by facilitating new ways of learning and creating new pathways to the brain and improve brain plasticity.
Our programs are sourced from leading edge researchers in perception, using innovative sound technologies facilitated by an experienced bodymind therapist
For emergency help/short training solutions:
We provide one off Consultancy for children and adults which may lead on to a series of sessions.
A short training aims to help the person recognize and control their stress build up, anxiety and frustration. Research has shown that learning is hampered when stress is high. When some self-help strategies are in place, we then consider what learning issues need to be addressed.
Longer training support is available for changes in:
- Writing (dysgraphic)
- Mathematics (arithmetic, algebra etc (dyscalculia) balance and
- Coordination problems (dysphasia)
- Hyperactivity ADD, ADHD, ODP
Kay has been working in this field for over thirty years and has attending many professional training courses which emphasise the sensory system: her programs and courses reflect this knowledge base particularly her practice knowledge of integrated body/mind methods focusses on the depth of the listening (auditory processing) issues commonly found with people with dyslexia .
- FLEXIBLE integrated programs fully geared to the individual’s need.
- DELIVERED AS:
- Intensives (daily work for 5-7 days)
- Weekly: over one term
- Can be a combined centre and home program
- Designed for children as young as 3 years old!
- For home schooling and distance education
Attention Parents and Adults who may think they are Dyslexic
We need your help!
People with dyslexia have the common strength of resilience- can often bounce back from adversity; the down side is some issues are overcome, but are not necessarily integrated. This is particularly true in cases of extreme behaviours- resiliance doesn’t appear to be present.
Some people believe they have ‘out grown’ their childhood issues, the emphasis in adulthood changes as life circumstances change.
Many find a way around their issues and go on to find a niche which is built on their strengths, but stress may be a factor constantly felt when in a new learning situation. If you feel or have been told you haven’t reached your potential despite being VERY smart … you may have a unique learning style with dyslexia as the hidden base.
Can help me!!
I am writing a book on my experiences of people with dyslexia which will focus on auditory processing. I am gathering family and individual stories of successful people in spite of or because of dyslexia.
My aim is to show the diverse nature of dyslexia, and trace any common themes, for example sensory processing and listening strengths and weaknesses.
I hope to show how individuals can be diverse and yet there may be common themes despite their life journeys and ‘symptoms’.
Would you like to contribute??
If you have a story, or you know someone you know who may be dyslexic, are successful but still plagued by the childhood learning ‘scars’ then lets talk and I’ll listen to the stories!
Contact by phone if you don’t want to write or if you have someone who could write for you that’s ok too.
Some starter questions:
What was/is it like to feel different? (With or without the label ‘dyslexic’)
How does/did learning differently affect your life? ( or are you seeing it in your kids and feeling frustrated?)
