Issues with things like organisation, memory, anxiety, stress, multi-tasking, reading, writing, sports, coordination, hypersensitivities, sleep, relationships or socialising can all have neurodevelopmental causes.

The HANDLE Screening is designed to identify some of these possible causes through a short series of activities and questions. The Screener then presents their findings and devises an individualised programme of HANDLE Activities to help address issues and promote wellbeing.

Following our popular half price Screening offer we are currently offering 30% off HANDLE® Screening Packs and Review Packs with certified HANDLE Screener and Practitioner trainee Sarah Hill. Sarah has worked alongside Sean Williams supporting his HANDLE training courses and clinics since 2008 whilst also working on home-based play programmes and in specialist schools and colleges. She has been a full time member of the Brighton Learning House team since 2013.

Screening Packs include: Screening (1 hour) and Presentation (2 hours) followed by a 1 hour Activity Check appointment, and are reduced from £180 to £126.

Screening Review Packs include 1.5 hour Reviews every 6 weeks OR 2 hour Reviews every 8 weeks, along with any email/phone support during the 6 month period, and are reduced from £300 to £210.

These prices are available for a limited time, so register soon to book your place, or to find out more details.

8 professionals from the UK and Europe are currently training in Brighton to become certified HANDLE Screeners. As part of their training we are offering free HANDLE Screenings under the guidance of a fully certified supervisor, in the city centre between Saturday 19th March and Tuesday 22nd March. The process lasts about 3.5 hours including a break of over an hour after the initial Screening.

It was very thorough and tuned into me/my son. Also done in a kind and gentle way. I’d recommend it because it helps to analyse which areas need support. It opened my eyes to many of my son’s needs but also his strengths.
— Julie Stokes, Mum of Jacob, aged 10, diagnosed with ASC and tourettes

You do not need to commit to following the programme you are given, though of course you are very welcome to, and follow-on services with certified Screeners are available if you wish.

Broken eggs and dolphins

Here is an extract from Elias's blog by his mother Janet, about their living and learning together. They have been doing a HANDLE® programme for six months and Son-Rise for two years. We wanted to share it because it's an inspiring story of love, dedication, openness and learning.

We hope you like it.

 

"I do not always feel comfortable writing and disclosing issues about our family life and my parenting in public. The last time I wrote in E's blog was about two years ago when we had just begun working with the Son-rise approach when I felt a "great sense of faith" that this approach would support E to choose to come out of his autistic world. Below, I want to share a few lessons that I/we have made over the past years by working with the Son-rise programme and a method called HANDLE, as well as with my own development as a parent/human.

My willingness to share came today when I sat with E on the couch and he suddenly suggested that he would read aloud to me from a book about dolphins. E read the whole book, I listened. After having finished the reading, he suggested that he would "draw letters", which we did. I gave him a pen and paper, wrote down some examples and just stayed watching. After finishing the alphabet he happily said he wanted to continue "typing numbers". I felt happy and proud; we had now reached a point in our relationship and in both of our developments when we really had achieved something important. What was it that felt so huge?"
