At Active Listening, we have a range of tutoring, movement programmes, and audio-processing tools that can help with a large variety of learning and listening difficulties.
Movement programmes stimulate and integrate the vestibular, proprioception, tactile and visual systems all at once. They are designed to give the brain the opportunity to “rewire” the neural pathways and strengthen the foundations so academic learning becomes easier.
Tutoring can include combinations of:
Structured literacy / phonological processing
Mathematics skills using materials
Personalized programmes that help calm the chaos, optimise brain and body connections to allow people to lead happier, healthier lives.
