The key to understanding a child’s behaviour including emotional, social and academic challenges is to have a greater awareness of how a child processes and integrates sensory information. In order to do this effectively it is essential to know the experiences of that child from conception to birth and in a babies most formative first 1000 days. 

During this programme we will review the hierarchy of sensory development and how the primitive brain only requires engagement when we are “threatened” We will explore the impact of shame, the threat of failure and the effect of low self-esteem on children who react and don’t always reason their behaviour. 

 Finally, we will detail interventions for home and school to enable our children who have experienced trauma to learn to live with the past and not continually in it.
