On Friday 24th May 2019 I shall be running trainings for therapists, other professionals/staff members and parents for Brainwave Charity . This charity helps children and young adults with disabilities/different abilities and additional needs to achieve greater independence through improving mobility, communication skills and learning potential through a range of educational and physical therapies.
The Brainwave Programme aims to develop the maximum potential of each child by taking an integrated approach to their physical and cognitive development an by aiming to enhance each child’s emotional and social intelligence/skills. One of the key successes of Brainwave is their ability to recognise the impact a child with additional needs has on their family and empowering them to deliver therapy to their child at home. Therapists are all trained in exercises, techniques and therapies to fit around the child’s day and are intended to facilitate developmental progress and improve function.
Brainwave Charity see children from all over the country in their centres and work with therapists who are drawn from the mainstream fields of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and educational therapy. They work with the child and their family to devise a unique programme specifically designed to meet the child’s needs and encourage them to unlock their full potential.
This a charity straight after my own heart and I cannot put into words how thrilled I am to have been invited to share my trainings with them for a whole day and add my therapy to what they can offer these special children and their families. I literally cannot wait !
It is truly an honour and joy to invited back once again to Brussels by Dr.Ed. Joanne Norris of ADHD,ASC & LD BELGIUM to give advanced trainings and talks over the weekend of 17th-18th November 2018.
I have absolutely loved delivering various conference talks and training programmes for this non- profit organisation in the past few years . Those involved work tirelessly to bring so many resources , trainings and evidence-based information to English speaking families affected by ADHD, the autism spectrum , dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia so that the children and young adults with these different abilities can have the opportunity to achieve their full potential at school and be productive and included adults with full and balanced lives. They also work extremely hard to reduce the stigma surrounding these special abilities and conditions and to enable these children to be heard and understood ….. people absolutely after my own heart !!!
I have met some incredible and dedicated parents, teachers, therapists ,speakers and other professionals, so many of whom have touched, inspired and added to my life and work each time I have been invited. I truly cannot wait to be back there .
