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 adults or children to do these exercises. If they do not like one, I simply look for an alternative.

Course content:
  • 6 HANDLE exercises and how to adjust them to the individual
  • how to spot the best moments for someone to do these exercises
  • how HANDLE can explain behaviour. What people do can tell us about their nervous system.
  • learn HANDLE principles such as not forcing someone, but rather going with their interests
  • making things fun and connecting with the person
  • how certain lights, sounds, smells etc. can disrupt the nervous system

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

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