Are words not getting through to your child?
Children listen more than just with their ears, and think more than just with the brain. Most important, is to remember that we think and listen also through our body to the brain.
Younger children feel through their bodies to listen and think. For example, children love to get buried in the sand, roll in the waves, play through movement but are not aware this movement is helping development. What you are not aware of you can’t enhance. The Wellness Through Movement (WTM) program builds a bridge of awareness by experiencing how the body helps the brain.
The WTM Bridge is a new orientation enhancing the biological nature of learning. The practice is not a tool, but a way of life designed to strengthen the way the body works with the brain. When the body and brain work in awareness they both work better.
The WTM program, Get Sensational Attention (GSA), has been proven to increase listening, attention, and personal growth. The GSA program is actually not a separate program,but weaves into the existing school and family culture. This program offers small steps to open a child’s internal world of emotional reactions, and how to communicate better. When there is a reaction, listening and attention is a physical sensation programmed in the body.
The program, Get Sensational Attention, has been proven to help children and their parents and families listen and understand each other. However, if your child is displaying any kind of hyperactivity or emotional reactivity please refer to the science page. There is more that has to be done with the body in order for them to listen. Hyperactivity and Emotional Reactivity webpages TBA.
