Empowered Learning Transformation Centers
Empowered Learning Transformation Centers has a plan for kids who struggle
We can help. As a parent, it is heart wrenching to watch your child struggle. Empowered Learning Transformation Centers has worked with tens of thousands of children and their families and we know we can help yours, too. Empowered Learning Transformation Centers constructs a comprehensive, personal plan that addresses your child’s challenges.
We can help your child with any of the following challenges. A formal diagnosis* from a Doctor is informative, but not mandatory.
High Functioning Autism
Other Spectrum Disorders
Our Program addresses the following, for all children:
Lack of Focus
Trouble Making Friends
Tantrums/Emotional Outbursts/Sensory Meltdowns
Sensory Motor Activities
The foundation of growth, development, and learning in a child starts with sensory and motor interaction with the world. The brain is built from the bottom up and this starts with movement and sensory exploration. Sensory stimulation and feedback drive the brain, but the motor system drives sensory stimulation—you can’t have one without the other. This is at the core of everything we do at Empowered Learning Transformation Centers. It is crucial to improve motor skills, sensory detection, and processing before any higher learning, behavioral or academic changes can truly happen.
In almost every case, children who have been assessed with a developmental deficit in one or more areas are the kids who struggle with learning or behavioral issues. Invariably, these kids are the ones with inadequately developed sensory and motor systems. We often see they are uncoordinated, clumsy, and awkward with their gait. Motor activities involve a number of different skills, including:
Muscle tone, strength, and coordination
Rhythm and timing
Gross and fine-motor skills
Primitive and postural reflexes
Eye-muscle balance and coordination
Vestibular balance and posture
Many like underdeveloped motor skills; the same applies when there are atypical sensory deficits — smell, touch, vision, hearing, and balance. No sensory function works in isolation. All the senses are dependent on other sensory functions, which are dependent on a baseline and acceptable level of development. Brain Balance sensory activities address any issues regarding:
Vestibular (inner ear)
Proprioception (the ability to know where one’s body is in space)
Balance and spatial perception
At Empowered Learning Transformation Centers, we assess all of these skills with standardized and accepted testing and we quantify them by grade, age, or functional level. Our program then works to integrate sensory input and strengthen motor skills through the frequency and duration of activities that are designed to improve balance and stability and to increase muscle tone so a child can react more quickly.
Some of these exercises include:
Primitive reflex training
And so much more!
These activities coupled with academic skill training and easy-to-follow dietary guidelines work to establish proper balance, while improving rhythm and timing. Our unique integrated approach helps your child achieve optimum body and mind balance, which leads to improved learning—academically, socially, and emotionally. You’ll be amazed at the physical and academic advances your child will make during our program.
