Movement is fundamental in building the brain. My guest this week is Niki McGlynn Neurodevelopment and Trauma Therapist from https://www.organisedmind.co.uk
ABOUT THIS EPISODE –
Deep in frustration have you ever questioned yourself and said ‘what’s wrong with me?’
You feel you should be able to do something but for some reason you just can’t seem to see it or get it right.
I feel this about spelling. I try so hard, check what I have written many times but I just don’t see simple errors or sometimes the speeling is so bad the spell check on the computer can’t even make a suggestion!
This really knocks my confidence and as a result I try and avoid anything that involves me writing.
In this episode, my guest, Niki McGlynn who has been working with neurodevelopment and primitive reflexes for nearly 10 years, casts a shining light on why many of us have these issues and more importantly explains how we can overcome them.
Niki’s daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia are 13 and Nikki herself was diagnosed at 40. Niki wanted to find something that would specifically help her daughter so that she had a better experience of school than she had. Now, after finding neurodevelopment movement programmes, which gently integrate primitive reflexes, and build new neural connections in the brain to improve focus and concentration, behaviour and organisation, Nikki really feels that she has found that gem that’s going to help you today, tomorrow and improve your life.
In this episode Niki explains what primitive reflexes are, how for many children they translate in school to an educational need in school such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia. Niki believes if we could see it more as a human issue, as a functional issue and less of an educational issue, perhaps we’d have a greater understanding.
This is a truly fascinating conversation from which I am sure all of us will take real value and practical advice that we can apply for ourselves or someone we know.
