• Neurofeedback Training

    After 20 years of regular panic attacks, I thought it was normal to feel anxious! Neurofeedback training helped me to deeply experience being calm yet able to function…

    I was able to go back to work
    after 6 months of absence!

  • Neuroplasticity

    According to the ATEC scoring, my son does not qualify anymore for autism. Yes, I agree with Normand Doidge:

    “…many ‘circuits’ and even basic reflexes that we think are hardwired, are not.”

Is your child learning efficiently?

Is your child ready to learn in school?

Did your child go through these steps?

The central nervous system (the brain) develops step-by-step, at its highest rate from before birth to one-year old and continues at a rapid rate until 7-years old in order to become an efficient learner.

If your child has missed some of these steps … we can give your child a “second chance”.

You can do the Neurodevelopment Through Movement program at home or come to our clinic for an individualized program.

Step 1: Pons (1-5 months) Crawling on his belly

  • Helps the hands to open out, integrating the grasp reflex (preparing the writing skill)
  • First time the baby moves forward on his own (attention and motivation)
  • Horizontal eye tracking
    (eyes muscles working without the head moving, base for the reading skill)
  • Develops eye muscles to converge
    (2 eyes but one image, preparing to focus later on each letter as he learns to read)
  • Vital tactile perception of his body in space
    (dermatomes on the surface of the skin linking to spinal cord and brain)

Rolling – Feldenkrais with Baby Liv

Step 2: Midbrain (4-13 months) Creeping on hands and knees

  • Hands open and close to support his body weight (next step development for the writing skill)
  • Eye accommodation: switching from near to far point vision
  • First experience of moving forward with speed
  • Connects vestibular, proprioception and visual systems

Crawling – Feldenkrais with Baby Liv

Step 3: Cortex (8-72 months) Upright walk with cross-pattern

  • Refining his binocularity
  • Awareness of three dimensions (touch, vision, sound)
  • Cortical opposition of both hands, working together but independantly
  • Inhibition of subcortical reactions
    (controlling impulsivity. leading to be able to simultaneously problem solve while staying calm)

Stage 4: Prefrontal Cortex (6 – 25 years) Refined skills for performance

  • Executive functions: planning, organizing, starting and finishing a project
  • Cognitive and emotional self-regulation
  • Delays gratification for a higher cause
  • Working memory
  • Consolidation of brain laterality
