Message from Pn Ngiam to all schools and government education institutions

After retiring from my teaching career for 34 years and as a Penolong Kanan Pendidikan Khas at Government schools, I have discovered more and more ways to help our students.

I hope that you will take the opportunity to attend some of the movement based learning programs to understand better why so many of our students behave differently than what we desire.

Understanding how our brain works help us to better understand our students too and provide the best support they need to be their best they can be. I would like to recommend the Brain Gym courses, BAVX and Rhythmic Movement Training programmes for all our teachers and students.

We would also be delighted to visit your school and present a 1.5 hours introductory workshop to your teachers. Some of the schools that we have visited including:

  • SJK Confucious KL
  • SK Bandar Sri Damansara 3
  • SMK Section 5
  • College Taj Ipoh
  • SK Taman Midah
  • SK Taman Maluri

Let’s learn with moving to achieve a better future for our students. Please email us at bestcentre@breakthru.com.my

Refreshing Springs Resort site visit in preparation for 2011 Special Needs Family Camp

The preparation is going on full swing for this year’s Special Needs Family Camp.
We have just visited the proposed camp site, and surely we love it a lot. The place is called Refreshing Springs Resort, about 6-7 km away from Tanjung Malim exit (PLUS highway). We love the idea of bringing the children back to nature.
The camp dates are from 1st – 4th September 2011. Since the camp site can only accommodate about 130 people, we will not be able to take more participants once we reach this number. We hope we have enough for all who need and registration will begin soon.
UPDATE: For those who wish to stay at Refreshing Springs Resort, you may visit their homepage and make a booking at http://www.refreshingspringsresort.com.my/

[Testimony] After 13 years, he initiated a conversation.

IMG_7035

My son was diagnosed with autism when he was about 3 years old. We travelled frequently to Kuala Lumpur from Sibu to seek help for him.  He went through numerous therapy sessions with established speech therapist, occupational therapist, music therapist, psychologist and others. We eventually moved to Kuala Lumpur as we found that there were more therapists here compared with Sibu. When my son was 12 years old, he started having mood swings. When he was angry, he would “attack” us, especially the maid. He would pull our hair, squeeze and scratch us.

My mum then told us about the Breakthru Enrichment Station (BEST Centre). I was at first sceptical about enrolling my son there considering the distance from our home.  In August last year, I finally checked it out.  My son, then 14 years old, joined the afternoon cooking session. Within a month, he was able to join the full-session of  Learning Breakthru and Homeschool Guidance Programme. Within six months, he started eating vegetables and other food/fruits, instead of fried stuff. He was calmer and a lot less angry. We noticed an amazing change in him. My daughter, who is studying in Singapore, also noticed much improvement in her brother. For the first time, he initiated a conversation with her by saying “How to play?” when he wanted her to show him how to play a piano gadget on her i-phone. Another occasion was when my son asked “New car?” when he saw our new car. Even, he is able to remember the Car’s registration number. Also, he always requested: “I want to play computer game”

We are so thrilled that he is making an effort to communicate with us. We are happy  that we found BEST Centre. It is well worth the time spent travelling daily from Seri Kembangan to Danau Kota, Setapak for the sessions.

Hereby, we wish to express our sincere thanks to M/s Phoebe Long & all Teachers for your utmost teaching & learning programmes in your BEST Centre. God Bless you all.

[Testimony] Our relatives noticed a lot of changes in her

Cassandra

My husband and I learned that our daughter has mild autism when she was 3 years old. Now she is 10 years old. When she was seven years old, we noticed that she was deteriorating in her lessons and had developed behavioural problems.

We sought help from Phoebe of Breakthru Kids.  In three months, my daughter showed improvement. When Phoebe started BEST Centre last year, our daughter continued with her Breakthru learning and home school guidance.

I also attended the Brain Gym (R) 101 International Certificate Course.  I’m calmer and more positive in my outlook now. Brain Gym is a useful course for me and others, too.

During the Chinese New Year last year, our relatives were impressed by my daughter’s ability to read and spell difficult words. They noticed a lot of changes in her.  This Chinese New Year, my daughter again impressed our relatives. She helped with our Penang reunion dinner preparations by cutting the vegetables.  Even when everyone had finished and it was late into the night, she was still eager to do more. She also wrote down a list of things that she would like to do. My mother-in-law was so touched that she saved the list. I see light in my daughter’s future better now.

April 2011 Brain Gym Course Available

Since the 1980s, the field of Educational Kinesiology (Edu-K)- the study of movement and its relationship to learning – has touched people of all ages and cultures. It demonstrates that, when the neuropathways for movement are fired, they activate and connect the whole brain in the synergistic way necessary for growth and change.

In the spirit of true education, we in Edu-K do our best to accept ourselves as individuals with unique challenges and great potential. We seek to meet ourselves where we are, honour that place, and stay open to learning at our own pace, for our own intrinsic worth. As a participant / student of Brain Gym (R) courses, you will now have a perpetual opportunity to move through the rich landscape of your own sensory integration. As you rediscover the physical skills involved in your personal/child/students’ learning process, you’ll realise how each one of us is engaged in lifelong odyssey of growth.
