Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere ~Chinese proverb.

We help people to understand underlying reasons behind their difficulties and then teach everyday activities they can do to support their learning and development in an enjoyable and sustainable way.  

Our Programmes are individually designed to suit each person whether a baby, a child or an adult. We teach you to be able to do the programme at home. Most programmes take about 20-40 minutes daily, and involve a range of activities designed to address underlying issues that are identified through an initial HANDLE® Screening or Assessment.

An activity programme might involve particular massages, movement sequences or games- some may need simple equipment (that we provide) and others can be done anywhere. They are reviewed and adapted regularly to keep up with progress and changes. Programmes are centred around the things that the client wants to go better, enabling them to reach their potential and take the struggle out of daily life.

In the course of doing a programme, many parents also develop a deeper connection with their child and learn how to interact in a way that supports a more relaxed, enjoyable and efficient way of living. Individuals also describe gaining deeper understanding of underlying issues which enables improved social, academic or working relationships.

Screening Programmes

These programmes begin with a Screening that lasts 40-60 minutes. After a break or on another day you come back for a 1-2 hour Presentation where your Screener will explain their findings and teach you a programme of daily activities specifically tailored to you.

Screenings are suitable for people aged 5 and upwards with mild to moderate difficulties. They are ideal for evaluating individuals or a group in a short period of time.

Assessment Programmes

These programmes usually begin with 3 evaluation sessions and 2 shorter Zoom follow-up calls, often spread over a few months. As they learn more about you or your child your Practitioner will explain their findings and teach you a programme of activities specifically tailored to you.

Assessments are suitable for anyone, of any age with any difficulties. They are ideal for people who want an in-depth understanding of more complex challenges.
