There were a few things happening during the holidays. Most of our teachers and facilitators underwent a series of training with renowned trainer, Cecilia Koester, USA, Author of ‘I am the child’ and ‘Movement Based Learning for children with all abilities’ and Founder of Movement Based Learning Inc. www.movementbasedlearning.com. We had up close and personal learning sessions with her witnessing the parental coaching process to identify the children’s specific needs in their learning dimensions.
We hope to share this precious learning experience with you, spouse and care giver of your child so that we may partner together to see a smoother breakthru and progress for your child’s current challenges in 2013.

Parents Coaching Programme is specially arranged to support parents who have children with learning challenges / disabilities. The coaching programme includes 7 essential topics and 7 movement based learning building blocks activities that addresses the foundational pieces of learning so that children who have special needs can learn how to learn. Parents are coached to support their children in a functional, practical way so that any information is directly applicable and useable.
The movements and activities that Movement Based Learning, Inc. incorporate in the child’s learning are based on natural, normal human development. They bring about rapid and often dramatic improvements in focus, comprehension, communication, organization and physical movement. The Brain Gym® International Foundation developed a unique program of physical activities that synchronizes body and mind to enhance learning and achievement for people of all ages and abilities. The activities and methods of Brain Gym® are safe, easy and enjoyable. Cecilia Koester developed a course for Brain Gym® International called Brain Gym® for Special Needs Providers. Therapists, teachers, tutors, elder caregivers and parents as well as anyone in the caring professions will benefit from learning how to assess the needs of an individual, develop a Brain Gym® program to meet those needs, evaluate the effectiveness of the program with ways to modify when necessary for best results.
Brain Gym® for Special Needs Providers offers excellent applications for a variety of mental and physical challenges including: autism, cerebral palsy, attention deficit disorders (ADD and ADHD), dyslexia, Angelman’s Syndrome, Down Syndrome, speech impairments, brain injuries, blindness, deafness and impairments caused by strokes.
Participants will leave this course with the new skills that optimize learning and performance in all areas of life. And they will find that these tools are immediately applicable in home, school and therapeutic settings!
In addition to teaching the above courses, Cecilia Koester is mentoring others to teach Brain Gym® for Special Education Providers.
