Physical issues which can affect learning

Visual Processing

Auditory processing

Retained Primitive Reflexes

Where a vision or visual perceptual problem exists, learning must inevitably be slower. There can be no doubt that excessive effort to see will reduce the processing or thinking power available for taking in and understanding visual information.

This workshop will focus on:

  • The relationship between vision and learning

  • How the eyes cope with the physical strain

  • The ability to focus accurately and without effort

  • Both eyes looking at the same place at the same time

All of these skills need to be automatic and to function without concious effort. The need to occur comfortably, easily and accurately in order that effective academic learning may take place.

The vision remediation programme is designed to improve visual efficiency and processing, thus facilitating learning.

Hearing anomalies can affect many aspects of normal everyday life, especially behaviour, sensitivity to noises in the home, social interaction, speech and language development and learning.

Language is composed of many sound frequencies. Those involved in the English language range from around 125hz to around 4500 hz. Mechanical noises, whistles, squeaks, etc, are usually perceived up to about 8000hz.. All the frequencies need to be perceived at approximately the same decibel levels to facilitate comfortable hearing and effective listening.

Unbalanced hearing or acute hearing at particular frequencies can result in language delay, ADD or ADHD type behaviour, inability to concentrate, difficulty following multi step instructions and inappropriate reactions to environmental noise.

Auditory Integration Training, a 10 day listening programme, helps to modulate the frequencies.

The presence of a cluster of Primitive Reflexes beyond 3 years of age is considered a Neuro Developmental Delay and may be a factor in the presence of:

  • Dyspraxia (DCD)

  • Dyslexia

  • Attention Deficit Disorder

  • Coordination Difficulties

  • Auditory Processing

  • Concentration Problems

  • Educational under-achievement

  • Reflex Delay

  • Asperger's Syndrome

  • Agoraphobia

  • Anxiety and Panic Disorder

A simple movement programme has been formulated to help integrate the reflexes and promote Neuro-Development.
