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
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,
