The Connection between Incorrect Motor Development and Learning Difficulties

Presenter: Shai Silberbusch, founder of the “First Step Method”

Motor activity is the basis for the development of organic learning – through observing how a 4-month old baby learns to roll and analyzing together the function of rolling, we will understand the origins of learning capabilities and the necessity of proper sensomotoric stimulation for an infant.

A Special Approach for Learning with Gifted and Talented children (presented in French)

Presenter: Eve-Marie Grival, Founder and Director of Ecole Germaine de Staël

Mother’s Guilt: The Cultural Discourses of Motherhood (presented in French)

Presenter: Dr. Kate Lindley Scheidegger, PhD, ASPEDAH Association pour les parents d’enfants hyperactifs

The cultural discourses that describe our societal norms and values contribute to an individual sense of “not measuring up” for mothers, especially when their children are considered “different”. In this workshop I present three persistent discourses and how recent research has challenged them, and invite mothers, and their supporters, to resist them.

Nutritional Therapy for Special Kids and GAPS diet

Presenter: Gemma Calzada, Nutritionniste

GAPS – what is it? Learn about the condition which is behind many mental and physical problems, which our children and adults suffer from, such as autism, hyperactivity and attention deficit, dyslexia, dyspraxia, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders and more. Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAP Syndrome or GAPS) is a condition, which establishes a connection between the functions of the digestive system and the brain.

Tomatis Listening Pedagogy: Key to Overcoming Behaviour, Communication and Learning Difficulties!

Presenters: Marsha Staubli and Elke Schlaeppi, Tomatis Consultants, Tomatis Listening Center, Rolle

The Tomatis Listening programme uses sound stimulation through an electronic ear specially engineered by Dr. Tomatis to exercise the listening function. This optimizes the links between the ear, brain and central nervous system. Correct auditory processing is an essential part of communication and learning! When our brain is charged we can focus, concentrate, organize, memorize, learn better. The Tomatis listening assessment measures hearing, listening, selectivity, spatialization and laterality. Come hear what all these terms mean for your child to overcome his/her learning issues.
