Katie is a 9 year old girl struggling at school and socially in most areas. She finds verbal communication challenging as speech development has been delayed. She struggles with co-ordination, balance and fine and gross motor skills. Katie also finds making friends difficult although a happy caring child and her academics are below average for her age.
After a 5 week programme executed at home her mother emailed.
‘We have been doing the exercises every day (bar 2) with some fantastic results. Katie is much more confident and sociable, able to use skills in different contexts more easily, becomes less upset if she makes a mistake and, perhaps most noticeably, finds maths so much easier. She can catch a ball with greater ease too, and fewer bruises on her knees.
We are looking forward to the next session. To date, we have done the roly-poly (which she loves), the lizard (which she improved in almost overnight), splat, snow angels, eye tracking (my goodness, the fantastic improvement in her eye tracking is amazing) and light therapy. We do massage at night, but struggle with the head part. Katie has very long, thin hair which knots easily. It hurts to do the scalp part of the massage; we are having a good haircut next week to see if this helps.
