There are many reasons why a child struggles at school. I assess
for reflex integration and I work with a simple and highly effective
system called Brain Gym®. This program uses movement to stimulate brain function and develop the physical skills needed for
learning. These targeted movements are particularly effective for
providing a “learning toolbox” for children of all ages.
“My son was struggling with concentrating during class, falling
behind. He has improved greatly with school work and matured a
lot since we have been working on the exercises Kerri has given
him. He was very fidgety but can redirect his energy positively
now. He has introduced his class to what he has been learning
and the school has been very supportive in helping riley. He enjoyed his time here and it helped him a lot.” (Marion)
