In this meeting we will review and discuss the Youtube Recording by Yvette Knights on Movement Therapy to assist trauma and developmental delays. Yvette explains how sometimes nothing seems to work to help our children because their brains haven't yet been primed for development. This may be because the brain is stuck in fight flight freeze or because milestones have been missed. Yvette offers neuro development therapy, a physical therapy, as a way to help rewire the brain and meet missed milestones (helping with emotions, speech, language, motor development, organisation, problem solving, learning and balance). An option for those with ADHD, Autism and similar experiences. Please join us for this discussion.

In this meeting we will review and discuss the Youtube Recording by Chris Storm on Sensorimotor and Somatic Experiencing. Chris has seen mute children start to talk, disregulated children reengage and children who are adopted or had a traumatic birth and start to life, start to repair their birth process. The safe and sound protocol, a listening or auditory system that helps with calming and felt safety, is Chris's favourite thing. Perhaps it could work for you? Please join us for this discussion.

In this meeting we will review and discuss the Youtube Recording by Gregory Nicolau on Therapeutic Parenting. Gregory highlights the importance of assessing where your child is at developmentally when they first come into your care, so that you can give thought everyday to how you progress them, whether by connecting with them and giving them help in stressful situations or by offering them the right supports (art/speech/occupational or other therapies or psychologists or psychiatrists). This he highlights is the difference between a carer and a therapeutic carer: the therapeutic carer is always looking at how to support and progress the child.
