At the end of the last century AD(H)D was on the rise but in the 21st century Neuro-Developmental Disorders such as Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) have increased dramatically and the effects are now noticeable in most classrooms of Preschools, Kindergartens and Primary Schools in Australia. From 1987 to 2007 the occurrence of ASD has increased by 1500% and it is still increasing.

There are some similarities between children with ASD compared to children with learning and behaviour problems:
  1. They do not have access to all areas of the brain required for learning
  2. Some or many prerequisite skills have not been acquired by the time they go to school
  3. Brain and sensory integration and development is less advanced, which affects their state of Reading, Writing, Spelling and Maths Readiness

The difference is in the cause and degree of severity in which brain function is affected.

What can we do to help improve brain function in these children?

We can:
  1. Help improve access to all areas of the brain required for learning and behaviour through specific brain exercises
  2. Improve brain and sensory integration
  3. Check for the presence of prerequisite skills
  4. Teach the missing prerequisite skills
  5. Check for their Brain Dominance profile and start with teaching them according to their preferred brain and sensory learning profile
  6. Improve learning in all sensory channels

Kinesiology is an exciting modality that uses Bio-energy testing as a Bio-feedback technique. Anyone can learn it and no prior knowledge is required. In this course you will learn how to do Bio-energy testing for yourself, your family and/or your patients. Could you use Kinesiology in your life?

During the Introduction to Kinesiology course you will be able to learn how to Muscle Check yourself and others. You will then learn how to use the Muscle Checking as a technique to identify the cause(s) of health and learning related issues. Muscle Checking will be used again to identify which foods, supplements, techniques and modalities will be most successful in dealing with these issues.

Using Bio-energy testing, learn how to determine the best:
  • Food
  • Lifestyle
  • Therapy

This is a fantastic technique that anyone can learn - no prior knowledge required. In this course you will learn how to use Bio-energy testing for yourself, your family and for your patients/clients.
