I am super thrilled to be partnering up with Leanne Scott of Move Therapies located in Osoyoos, BC for regular Intensives. She's an amazing practitioner and I am so looking forward to working with her. And I am REALLY looking forward to having her work with my daughter.
What is an Intensive?
The NeuroMovement® approach of the Anat Baniel Method, usually works best for kids with special needs when the lessons are grouped together in 'chunks'.
Think of 4 lessons over 2 days (2 lessons per day) once a month, instead of one lesson per week.
By grouping the lessons together, the child's brain has an influx of quality information to build upon during those 4 days. During the days and weeks after, expect new changes to happen as their nervous systems incorporate the new information into functional changes. This is when things get exciting!
Often the week after an intensive, you will notice some fun changes in your child. More communication, more engagement, better sleep, better coordination, less spasticity, new milestones, etc.
The changes can keep appearing 1-3 weeks after the intensive. Most then notice a plateau in new developments around week 4-5 and that's when you want to have the next intensive booked.
Our First Intensive
Our first collaborative intensive will be happening Dec 28/29, 2016 in Osoyoos, BC. Stay tuned for when we will be having one in Harrison Hot Springs!
Working with another practitioner is super exciting for me, but sooooo very beneficial for the kids.
Each child gets two lessons per day, one with me and one with Leanne. Having two different pracititoners gives such great variation and feedback for the child and each practitioner has their own unique style and personlity.
I know from experience from watching lessons with my daughter that it's a joy for your child to experience the richness of a variety of quality practitioners. Each one connects in their own unique way with the kids and you never know what information each child will gain from them.
