Professional Development: Assessing Neuromotor Readiness for Learning
How does the programme work?
Primitive Reflexes are part of our body make up. We are born with specific movement patterns ingrained into our central nervous system. If for whatever reason these reflexes are not 'put to sleep' so that more mature patterns can evolve they can affect all movement experience. This makes it extremely difficult for the child to control their body, making the classroom a place of frustration. The INPP schools programme tailors specific movement exercises to release the effects of Primitive Reflexes and develop the much needed Postural Reflexes required for school learning. Children are able to gain full automatic control over their body, freeing up their Cortex for academic learning.
The schools programme is an easy to use, full year programme which only consists of 10 - 15 minutes a day of specific, tailored movements that increase neuromotor maturity and allows children the freedom from primitive reflex control.
Symptoms Associated with Retained Reflexes
Easily distracted, lack of concentration, ‘Shuts off’
- Immature socially and academically
- Confused or can’t remember instructions
- Floppy child
- Messy eater
- Struggles to swim
- Issues with catching objects - eyes
- Struggles with spelling, reading, writing & maths
- Immature pencil grip
- Emotionally volatile
- Consistent Behavioural issues
- Attention, balance and coordination difficulties
To release children's fullest potential
We believe that all children have the possibility of a full and satisfying life - realizing their potential. We are committed to helping children achieve their fullest.
We do this through a range of services which support parents and educators in understand children's behaviour and struggling academics - and then helping their children with these issues too! Quite frankly we love kids and want to help them get their bodies and brains connected in an efficient way so that they can succeed! We do this through an exercise programme which puts Primitive Reflexes to sleep and establishes Postural Reflexes - the ones needed for school learning.
Every family and individual are listened to and respected at Without Limits Learning. A child's family has specialised knowledge and experience about their child and for this reason, their thoughts and opinions are valued. We listen, and we care. We support families on their journey to success.
Developmentally Appropriate Interventions
At Without Limits Learning we focus on the individual child. All of our work, with every child, is at the level they need; supporting current growth and scaffolding the next steps in manageable ways. Our plans are tailored to best cater to the needs of EVERY child and our regular monitoring systems ensure that the child's growth is steady and successful.
We exist because we believe we can help release children's unlocked potential. We believe in success growth, and positive change for children and families. We will do what it takes to help all children succeed. Through this journey many families will find a successful path to travel.
Leanne Seniloli is a Neuro-Developmental Therapist, Early Childhood Lecturer and teacher, a mum of four and a prior homeschooler. In her private practice she works with families who are wanting to see lasting change in their children's learning, behaviour and coordination.
After nearly 20 years working with children formally and informally, Leanne knows what parents', educators and children endure in the process of education and family life. Equipping parents and teachers to fully support all aspects of a child’s development truly drives the change that can release their fullest potential at school and home.
Leanne also trains teachers to assess neuromotor readiness for learning. She has taught in preschools for more than 10 years and now lecturers about early childhood education.
She has articles printed in 'The Space' and ‘Teachers Matter’ Magazines and has featured on NewsTalkZB, RadioLive, Scoop and Voxy. Her first book Simply L.O.V.E Four keys to parenting success is due for publication later this year.
Leanne holds a post-graduate level qualification in Neuro Development Therapy (INPP), a B. Teaching (ECE), NZCATT, Certificate in bi-lateral integration, Dip. Children's writing, Dip. Leadership, and is a registered New Zealand Teacher.
What are Primitive Reflexes?
Primitive Reflexes are automatic movements directed from the part of our brain that works without us thinking about it. It is our most primitive and basic form of survival.
We don't think about them, we don't try to make them, they just happen.
We need these reflexes when we are babies but after that - they don't help us with education, posture, or coordinated activities. In fact, they become a real pain and cause Neuro motor Immaturity.
Neuro motor immaturity is a barrier because children don't have full and automatic control over their body, which means the brain isn't operating as efficiently as it could.
Research has linked neuro diversity such as: ADHD; ADD; Autism Spectrum; Neuro Developmental Delay, DCD (Dyspraxia), Dyslexia and Non-Specific Learning Difficulties with the presence of primitive reflexes.
In addition, handwriting, reading, spelling and other learning difficulties as well as behavioural issues most often have underlying reflex problems.
We can ensure these reflexes no longer have any impact on your child's education, learning and development. By using the programmes designed to limit the presence of primitive reflexes and develop needed postural reflexes.
Whether you are a parent of a child who is struggling or a teacher who wants to maximise your students learning we can help you.
