Challenges and Changes - An Approach to Remediation

Several times over the last year, I have been asked to explain the general approach that I use as a neurodevelopmentalist. I have written several articles on different aspects of my approach but have not given an overall picture of it. This month I will attempt to do so. 

Samonas Sound Therapy

Hearing is our most fundamental sense, providing information to the brain long before any of the other senses are matured. At 135 days of gestation, the unborn child's cochlea is fully formed and has reached its final, adult size. The first part of the cochlea to form is the part that senses high frequency sounds.

Sound Therapy for Children with Down Syndrome

Children with Down Syndrome often have speech and language problems. Neurodevelopmentalists have a very different approach to these problems than the normal therapeutic route.

Hearing, Learning and Listening: the role of auditory function in academics and everyday life.

Great confusion exists today in the areas of analysis of auditory function. This confusion exists because of errors in the methods used to analyze and diagnose these problems.

Phonics vs. Sight Reading:

the most important piece of information you need to know

The controversy between Phonics and sight reading has been a long standing argument, with phonics usually winning out in homeschool circles. But, despite a strong stance in favor of phonics, many parents find themselves at a standstill in terms of their child actually being able to learn the phonics and then read. It is fine to stand up for phonics, but if you can't make it work, then it is time to learn more in-depth about the brain that processes phonics.

Sensory Play Defined

Sensory play, self-stimulating behavior, or “stimming” are all terms used to describe a group of behaviors seen in many delayed children.  It is repetitive, it often appears compulsive, and it can occur using any of the senses.  Parents usually describe it as something that doesn’t seem quite right.
