Would you like to improve your child´s concentration, speech or perhaps their sleep? Would you like your child to be calmer and be able to sit still for longer?

HANDLE® is a movement, neuro-developmental approach that is based on the plasticity of the brain; that the brain can change at any age.

Movement, especially organised, rhythmic movement can help organise the brain. So we teach people how to do a programme of movement exercises tailored to their needs. It is crucial to customise the exercises because everyone is an individual and has a different nervous system.

It is also important not to pressure children to do these exercises. If they do not like one, I simply look for an alternative.

Course content:
  • 12 HANDLE exercises and how to adjust them to the individual
  • explaining sensory-motor systems: touch, vestibular system processing movement, body in space awareness, muscle tone (muscles ready for movement, writing, talking, eye movement for reading)
  • how these systems can explain behaviour
  • how irregularities in the sensory-motor systems delay learning
  • influence of internal and external environment on learning and the quality of life

·     signs of overwhelm of the sensory-motor systems– reducing stress to speed up learning

The twelve activities are explored in detail, focusing on application for different ages, capabilities, developmental stages and needs.

This is a live course and takes place on Monday and Wednesday evenings, from 7-9:30pm UK, Irish and Portuguese time.

The course starts on 5th June.
