When considering a whole child approach to learning, it is important to not only look at the academic deficits, but underlying factors as well. These include problems with sensory and motor systems such as balance, coordination, and poor fine- motor skills; problems with cognition, such as visual and auditory processing as well as memory; and physical problems connected to poor nutrition or food intolerances.
The purpose of this website is to learn about the role each of these four areas play in the proper development of children and their learning. It is meant to help parents and teachers be proactive in helping to identify strengths and weaknesses in their children so they can help strengthen them from the inside out.
These are not quick fixes, but slow processes to help heal and re-structure the body and brain to promote optimal learning. Every child responds differently, and what we learn from one child can help us help another more efficiently. Knowledge is power, and knowing what might be contributing factors can clue us in knowing which professionals will be key in the process of helping our children improve.
