Description Directions, Payments & Refunds Course Content & Required Resources
In the last decade particularly in inner cities like Dublin more and more children are being raised in cramped conditions like apartments or crowded nursery schools with limited space.

This had impacted on the child's natural need to move and crawl and explore their new world. Critical brain development steps have been missed that later impact on their ability to learn in the classroom. Teachers are now having to face the consequences of these problems making it more difficult for them to teach.

Do some of these problems sound familiar?

Jack: The wriggler who fidgets in class and is easily distracted

Rosie: She can’t or ‘won’t’ listen to or follow instructions

Alex: The verbally bright pupil whose written work, organization and concentration are weak

Holly: The immature, impulsive child who gets into difficulties in the classroom and socially

This one-day international programme is suitable for Teachers, Assistants and SNA's. It provides a series of practical activities that can be implemented in your classroom that will benefit all students irrespective of their development stage.

The program has been used extensively around the world with exciting results and has been adopted by a growing number of today's professionals, specialising in areas like Learning Difficulties, ADD, ADHD, Autism, Aspergers and Physical Disabilities.

‘Can’t wait to start this for my children at home and in the classroom’. ‘Fabulous and fun and good pace kept interest and activity flowing’. ‘Very thought provoking and informative.’ ‘I am excited to go back to school and tell everyone: Give it a go!’.
