Thrive Body

It’s incredible that our amazing brain is the only organ not fully developed at birth. 90% of brain development happens by a child’s 5th birthday! Through active play and sensory exploration, your child’s brain forms 700 new neural connections per second in the early years of life. This early brain development is absolutely crucial in forming the foundation for all future learning.

When the foundational areas are functioning efficiently and are at a developmentally appropriate level, they free ‘higher’ cognitive systems to give attention to academic learning, reasoning and creativity, as well as emotional security and social confidence.

On the flip side, however, if a child does not complete a majority of their brain development early in life, they are at risk of being left with a brain that lacks proper maturity and connectivity. In the classroom they may look like they have ‘ants in the pants’, are distractible, have trouble following directions, or are slow to progress in reading, writing or maths skills.

There is good news!

Individualised movement based learning programs are an integral part of Thrive’s interventions. Through specific movement protocols, we are able to address the developmental gaps which may have been missed early on in life.

These programs may support and help strengthen:

  • concentration, focus and organizational skills
  • balance and physical coordination
  • self-regulation
  • auditory processing
  • visual processing
  • eye hand coordination
  • confidence and self-esteem
  • behaviour
  • academic skills

Call us now and find out how we can help your child start to enjoy learning more fully and finally reach their potential.
