Question: Why is Infant Reflex Integration important? Answer: It delays or disrupts brain maturation. In the research paper below the[...]
Physical changes often happen first
His weight is totally forward and he looks like an athlete. Previously, his running style was laborious, his body tilted backward, with his chest out.
Learning to Communicate
He is doing really well with his verbal and non-verbal communication. His receptive language is very good as well - asking for unusual things as a joke!
Eating Issues
A few months after starting Brainchild Development Program he is now loving eating school dinners and trying new foods whenever they are available.
Aspartame
Would you knowingly give your child a poison to drink on a regular basis? Of course not, but you may, unknowingly, be doing just that.

'The programme has made home life a lot more pleasant for all my family and my son' - Mum
Released to learn – Aspergers Syndrome son (12 years old)
He enjoyed coming, liked the time and the attention and interaction plus the hands-on nature. Going back to tactile relationships is quite nice for him.
Buttons, Siblings and Fine Motor skills

Social Work and Brainchild
Here is a bit of recent feedback from a social worker on our facebook group pages that shows how Brainchild can help a wide range of 'problems'
The true story of genetically modified foods USA AND THE WHOLE WORLD.
Only available to watch for a few days, this movie tells the horrifying story of GMO and it's destructive effect on life on our planet, especially our food.
How can one treatment help such a wide range of problems?
Ok.....how can Brainchild help so many different types of special need? ‘Surely I should be using a treatment specific to my son’s autism?’

ADHD, Dyslexia, Learning & Behaviour
Changes noted of this 12 year old boy. ‘Tantrums’ and refusals had been frequent and severe. R has coped with secondary school much better than I hoped.
Aspergers
When we first started doing the exercises within the first week I had four nights of unbroken sleep. Which has never happend in 11 years. This bit has slid a little and she has started waking again. But she isnt as anxious when she does wake and will sometimes go back down with out any bother.
Why I have so many pictures of unusual items…
I remember when change was impossible with my son. A new car, a new duvet, a new bed, a new TV would all initiate some pretty traumatic, extreme behaviour.
Autism and SLD
One evening after one session of Brainchild he led me upstairs by the hand and put himself to bed, a first!
