The Neurodevelopmental approach of our guest today is based on the concept of Neuroplasticity or the brain’s ability to restructure and change with targeted input. Yes, the brain can actually re-organize itself! That is exciting news and the implications for our kids with neurological issues is huge! Tune in today and learn how neurodevelopment works, what a visit to a therapist would look and feel like and what you can expect for your child. You will also discover some things you can start doing today, in your home, to help your child's brain to reorganize itself. Today is all about helping your child to reach his or her full potential! The brain is capable of amazing things and this approach helps to nourish the potential that is in each and every one of our children. Sylvia walks her talk. She is not only professionally trained in this approach she has used it with success in her own family. As always your calls are welcome or you can email your questions to the show.
Sylvia Funk, of PATHWAYS for NeuroEducational Development, is a member of the International Christian Association of Neurodevelopmentalists (ICAN). Her personal journey with an ICAN Neurodevelopmentalist began 16 years ago as a parent of a special needs child. As she saw her son improve and heard of the improvement so many other parents were experiencing Sylvia became convinced that this field needed to be made more available to struggling parents. Knowing that this field had a long history, beginning a number of decades ago with the work of Doctor Temple Faye, Carl Delacato, Glenn Doman and others, Sylvia was determined to make this her life’s work. Her previous work experience as a Registered Nurse provided her with the necessary prerequisite to begin the involved multi-level training process to become certified in this approach.
