Parents Coaching Program

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is grows up, he will not depart from it.”

This program has been specially developed for parents with children who learn differently or have special needs. The program brings together three areas of methodologies that can aid and empower parents in their journey with their children.

Under the program, parents will attend a 4-day Brain Gym for Special Needs (also known as BG170), an 8 hour P.L.A.Y strategy and a 15 hour RMT for School Readiness.


Brain Gym for Special Needs (BG170)

Single Class worth RM1,800

In Brain Gym for Special Needs (BG170), parents will be introduced to the Brain Gym 26 specific movements that can help to ready a child for learning to take place. In this course too, parents will learn to understand what they see and hear; set achievable goals for their children to succeed; understand the use of intention in their speech and; a set of movements, unique to BG170, called Building Blocks, which are used to build up non-existent or minimal abilities. Parents will learn about the three dimensions of learning that correlate to the neurological development of a child. They will be introduced to the Focus Dimension (comprehension involving the Back Brain); Centering (organisation involving the Midbrain); and Laterality (communication involving the cerebral hemispheres). Parents will be taught to notice physical posture and body language of these three dimensions to understand a particular child’s learning process. Ultimately it is to bring all three dimensions of the brain and body system to work together in order to make learning easier.

In the words of its founder, Cecilia Koester, M.Ed., “When learning involves the whole brain, we become active, self-motivated learners, able to take risks, explore new territory, and enjoy the peaks and valleys of the adventure at any age and under any circumstance. A child who has special needs emerges from her shell of survival reflexes and movement patterns into whole-brain integration.”
