Is your child struggling at school or at home with learning, attention or behaviour?

Are they having difficulty…

  • listening?
  • staying on task?
  • regulating behaviour?
  • making and keeping friends?
  • sitting still on a chair?
  • re-telling events?
  • learning to read and write?
  • concentrating on school work?
  • poor attention span… are they easily distracted?

…if so, then this module is for you!

The module provides you with practical strategies to help your child concentrate and learn. The focus is on developing the sensory processes that are essential for successful learning.

  • Manners improving, saying please and thank you
