Is your child experiencing a learning difficulty such as:
•ADD/ADHD, •Dyslexia, •Dyscalculia, •Autism Spectrum Disorders, •Dysgraphia, or •Poor memory?
Intervention strategies implemented by Whole Child Learning Solutions follows the child's natural developmental phases.
Because there are no quick fixes for lasting results
We begin in Step 1 with FDN for Kids by making sure that the child's body is ready for learning. Depending on the presentation of the child, parents order specialized lab tests to find out where support can be given in the body. Families will need to adopt a healthy diet and test to see to which foods the child is sensitive. Food sensitivities contribute to chronic inflammation, including in the brain. Other lab tests are given to detect possible pathogens, the presence of a leaky gut, and other markers such as neurotransmitters. Supplements may be suggested to optimize the healing of specific body systems.
Once the family has had a chance to implement Step 1 then our Get Integrated! program in Step 2 can begin to be implemented. During this phase, children will continue on their nutrition plan, but will incorporated exercises that will help integrate their sensory motor systems, primitive reflexes, and both hemispheres of the brain. Depending on whether the child is local or consulting at a distance, he may be seen personally in a 1-1 setting periodically for more in-depth balancing.
Most children will improve with steps one and two alone, however, at times it will be necessary to continue on to Step 3 and Step 4. Step 3, Brawny Brainz, is a cognitive development program focused on the cognitive areas of concern for the particular child. Such tasks may include auditory memory, working memory, rhythm & timing, and visualization. For cognitive development to be most effective, it will be necessary for the child to engage in activities 5 days a week, so the parents will be taught which activities to do at home. If the child is local, it may be practical for him or her to come in for face-face consultations.
If the child is significantly behind in school and needs academic support, that will happen in Step 4, or maybe in lieu of step 3, depending on the specific weaknesses. At this point the child should be ready to receive focused academic intervention, whether it be in mathematics, reading, or any other academic area. This may take place with me, if the struggle is in math, with my self-developed developmental mathematics intervention program, or with another specialist or private tutor.
Not all children will need to go through all 4 steps. A lot depends on the severity of the child. Many children only have to do steps 1 & 2 and the rest will fall into place.
