Child Centre Method Module 1
This Introduction is the foundation course for further studies in The Child Centre Method. Potential Training is an affiliated school of the BCMA and Healer Foundation. The Child Centre Method is an approved course by the BCMA, IICT and accredited by Kinesiology Association.
Primitive reflexes Day 1
The Child centre method is a unique and effective way of addressing learning, behavioural and emotional issues with children. It combines some of the most effective techniques, currently in use, to help children.
This is a workshop to aid carers of children to help children to reach their full potential. This is an introduction to primitive reflexes and how they affect learning, emotional and behaviour issues.
Primitive and Postural Reflexes are a cluster of programmed automatic movements which develop for our survival. An example is the Moro reflex, which allows a new born to take its first breath. Problems arise if the Moro reflex is retained, as the body is held in “fight/flight” mode. As a baby grows up, this primitive reflex is replaced by newly learned movements, in a process of integration. However, when the process of integration is not complete, the reflex will have an adverse effect on a child’s emotional well-being as well as how the child learns and behaves.
ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, difficulty with reading and writing, concentration and attention problems, emotional problems and behavioural problem are some examples of issues related to retained primitive reflexes.
What is covered ?
- Theory of retained primitive reflexes and how they affect learning and behaviour in children.
- How to do some basic assessments of the primitive reflexes.
- How to assess children using the Child Centre Method assessment.
- Learn how to address the problems via developmental movement exercises
- Learn how to use some of the SIMPLE movement programme.
This information will be of value to Therapists, teachers, educators, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and anyone linked children or wants to start working with children in a holistic way.
Primitive Reflexes Day 2
The second day, of this module, is a continuation of day 1. This day is mostly a practical day. You will be testing the reflexes and become more confident at completing the assessment and learning how to put the exercise together in a fun way, both in groups situations and in one to one situations.
Also, you will learn all eight of the bilateral integration sequencing routines and information about three other very important reflexes. By completing this day, you will be able to work with children using developmental exercise to help integrate retained primitive reflexes.
These exercises can be used in schools, in after-school clubs, in other centres that work with children, in a therapy clinic or at home.
What is covered ?
- Learn more about the reflexes, the Postural reflexes.
- Learn about the importance of the Landau reflex, Tendon guard reflex and Head righting reflex.
- More practice on testing for the reflexes and completing the assessment.
- Learn how to use the Home SIMPLE (Sensory Integration Movement Programme For Learning Enhancement) with individuals and groups of children.
- Learn how to completed the bilateral integration sequencing exercises.
