Our approach looks at each child from the perspective of three levels; the body, the mind and the emotions. Only if all three aspects work together in harmony can effective learning take place.

The Body:  

The body is the hardware, when that is working correctly the software (all the processing the brain does) will work at its full capacity. This is where we start using the processes involved in sensory integration.
During sensory integration we focus on:

  •      Proprioception (muscles, bones and where we are in space).
  •      Vestibular (ears, balance).
  •      Ocular (eyes and eye muscles).
  •      Oral (muscles in the mouth).
  •      Tactile (interpreting what we feel).
  •      Gross motor (hand eye coordination, midline crossing, foot eye coordination).
  •      Fine motor (cutting, writing).
  •      Auditory processing (how we interpret what we hear).
  •      Visual perception (how we interpret what we see).

The emotions:

It is very important for children to know who they are and feel accepted for being who they are.
Once the sensory system is sorted children can start to grow within themselves and learn life skills:

  •      Independence
  •      Self-discipline
  •      Social integration
  •      Self-pride
  •      Self-realization
  •      Speech and communication

The mind:

Once a child understands the world around them, how they fit in it, and how to interpret it they can start to learn.
During this time children begin to learn the following skills and subjects:

  •      Reading
  •      Math
  •      Science
  •      Geography
  •      Life skills
  •      Biology
  •      Home economics
  •      Economics
  •      Agriculture
  •      And more
