Rewrite of Reflexes, Learning & Behavior
Why is the physical basis for learning important? How does immaturity in aspects of physical development affect learning, emotional wellbeing, and behavior? How can this be identified? How can it be assessed and what forms of remediation are available?
Reflexes, Movement, Learning & Behavior covers an area of education and emotional wellbeing that is often overlooked or falls between professional domains. It provides information that can help parents, teachers, and other professionals to understand what lies behind the underachieving child and adults who suffer from balance-related anxiety disorders. The method fills a yawning gap in ‘the system’, which often fails to recognize underlying physical factors in underachievement, behavioral and emotional problems. Identifying some of the mechanics involved is the first step in moving from victimhood to being able to live with a problem and in many cases, overcome it. It helps parents and teachers to understand children better, to introduce more effective coping strategies where needed and, ideally, to correct some of the underlying problems enabling children and adults to become more resilient and flexible in response to stress and to realize their potential.
Educators, learning professionals, child psychologists, doctors, movement specialists and parents will find this an essential and unique resource.
