Why is your bright child not coping at school
Many children puzzle parents and teachers because in spite of their obvious intelligence they find some things difficult to learn. School becomes increasingly difficult for them. Brain research in the past years has been steadily contributing to new understanding of the way our brains and bodies function. Being able to apply neuroscience to children’s learning problems has empowered us with the ability to help children more successfully than those drug or behaviour therapies that have frustrated families up to now.
A neurodevelopment approach is not necessarily the specialised domain of the neurologist. It requires knowledge of what neurological systems in the child are essential for learning; when certain systems develop; and how such systems may be affected by aspects of development or the environment. Most importantly, it requires knowledge of how these systems may be enhanced so that they are capable of supporting the learning and everyday behaviour that is expected of every child. Children are often struggling with issues caused by problems in their neurodevelopment rather than any diagnosed medical conditions, such as ADHD and others.
