At age 4 or 5, we get ready for our children to take their first tentative steps to school. But have you ever stopped to ask whether or not your child is developmentally ready yet for a formal education?
Children vary enormously in terms of their neurological development. Some children simply have nervous systems which are still relatively immature for their age, making them unable to process all the information fed to them in class. This has absolutely nothing to do with how smart they may or may not be.
Research has shown that children who struggle in class still have many infant or ’primitive’ reflexes locked in place, making school work much harder for them. They cannot access their true level of intelligence as these reflexes mess up balance, coordination, eye tracking, the ability to sit still and concentrate. All skills essential to school learning.
Fortunately, it is possible to overcome these blockages, giving the nervous system a second chance to mature, through a programme of neurodevelopment movements at The Key Clinic.
What is Neurodevelopmental Movement?
Developed over 40 years ago by the Institute of Neurophysiological Psychology (INPP), it is a drug-free movement method which improves the nervous system and also behavioural and learning problems.
l Better focus/concentration
l Improved eye functioning
l Less fidgeting
l Improved social skills
Ensure your child has the best start to their school career, by having them assessed at The Key Clinic to ensure they are ‘school ready’.
