    Learning Connections' specific learning strategies create success

    A growing body of neuro-scientific research supports the proposition that the continued presence of primitive reflexes beyond the normal age of inhibition plays a significant role in learning difficulties. Primitive reflexes provide signposts of central nervous system immaturity. It is possible to promote maturity and to detect and correct minor dysfunctions in the central nervous system through the use of specific movements that are needed for development.

    There is an underlying sequence of motor development and as retained primitive reflexes are inhibited, and sensory motor function improves, the delays that are at the root of most learning difficulties are reduced – resulting in improved learning. Learning Connections provides specific learning activities as part of their holistic approach.

    The majority of children will initially become more successful learners when exposed to more specific right brained, kinaesthetic and tactile learning activities in conjunction with their Learning Connections program. As the child's immaturities (that are the cause of their learning difficulty) are overcome, Learning Connections' specific learning strategies create success.

    Learning Connections draws on our wide range of experience and activities specifically designed for individual’s needs to promote improved learning. At Learning Connections we provide a range of programs that are specifically designed to help children experiencing different problems, we provide:

    Sensory Motor Maturation Programs

    Sensory Motor Maturation Programs enhance the ability of the child to process sensory information. With maturation and improved central nervous system organisation children develop the foundations necessary for attention and learning. They are then able to organise their hands, body and mind to effectively express their knowledge and organise themselves for motor learning tasks.

    Sound Therapy Programs

    When used in conjunction with a Learning Connections program, Sound Therapy can play an important role in overcoming learning difficulties, attention, listening, auditory processing and sequencing problems, and improve both speed of auditory processing and visual processing. To read more about how Sound Therapy works, please see the Sound Therapy section of our Auditory Processing Difficulties page.

    Visual Programs

    Many children have signs of visual immaturities. They may be reluctant to draw and engage in paper-pencil activities in their Prep year. When older, they may miss words and lines when reading. Visualisation activities, when used in conjunction with a Learning Connections program help children improve visual attention and learning. These can be included in a Learning Connections program.

    Specific Learning Activities

    When retained primitive reflexes and sensory processing immaturities have been addressed through our programs, children are able to benefit more fully from tutoring programs. Learning Connections provides individualised programs with specific, age appropriate learning strategies to assist children to gain the confidence and skills needed to achieve success.

    For more information about any of our programs please call or email us today.
