F.O.I.L. Invites you to attend a three part workshop focused on physical issues which can impact upon learning and development.

Date and Time to be announced

Auditory Training

It is a documented fact that listening to Auditory Training's specially filtered and modulated music for half an hour, twice a day, for ten days, can have a dramatic effect. AIT is explained, including, with the approval of the FDA, that Auditory Training can be of benefit in remediating impairments in auditory discrimination associated with disorders such as autism, dyslexia, pervasive developmental delay, sensory processing disorder and attention deficits, and that it often improves socialization and academic skills.

Zoran Pejic on Vision Therapy

Zoran is founder and president of the Asia-Pacific Orthoptic Association. With a degree in special education (visual deficiency) and orthoptics, he specialises in the effects of visual deprivation on learning.
Visual dysfunction can cause difficulties with focusing, particularly during classroom activities such as copying from the whiteboard and tracking for reading or writing. Poor binocularity can cause problems with depth perception and make sports very difficult particularly those involving hand-eye coordination. Extra effort is required to coordinate the eye movements making reading and writing tasks very difficult and tiring. Our children are often unaware that their difficulties are not normal. They assume everyone struggles with the same issues as they do.

June Webb on Retained Primitive Reflexes

Founder and Director of Focus on Individual Learning, Singapore. June is a specialist in learning differences and a Neuro- developmental therapist. She initially trained as a teacher, focusing on the field of special education. She went on to train with the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology and is now a practitioner in the area of Retained Primitive Reflexes.
Neuro-Developmental Delay is defined by INPP as the continued presence of a cluster of primitive reflexes above the age of one year and the absence or underdevelopment of postural reflexes above the age of three and a half years. The presence or absence of primitive and postural reflexes at key stages in development provide reliable indicators of central nervous system maturity. Abnormal reflexes have also been documented as playing a part in specific learning difficulties and immature behaviour.(Fiorentino 1970, Bobath & Bobath 1975, Ayres 1972/3, Bender 1976, Blythe, McGlown 1979, Goddard 1994/96, Wilkinson 1994,Goddard Blythe 1998)
