Developmentally Based Growth
Every child has the capacity to grow and progress forward in every area of growth - emotional, social, cognitive, and academic. The key to building this growth is to meet each child at his or her current point in development and provide the appropriate support from that point forward. Rainbow Connections supports children with challenges using approaches that follow the path of typical development, focusing on those particular steps that the child has missed.
A reflex is an automatic motor response to a stimulus. For example, when light shines into our eyes, our pupils contract. Reflexes are extremely important to a child's developing body and brain. They emerge in utero and infancy helping with the birth process and protecting babies in the early months of life. Each reflex carries out a specific task.
NeurOptimal® is a highly personalized brain training software that prompts the central nervous system to help make the best use of your brain's neural resources. Neurofeedback training for the brain is similar to physical training for the body.
Typically developing children progress through a sequence of movements (including crawling) which cause them to become neurologically organized and meet their physical, social, emotional, and cognitive milestones with ease. When obstacles interfere with this developmentally necessary process, problems can arise in all areas of growth.
Newborn Movement Assessment
An infant's ability to move freely in an unrestricted manner is a critical foundation for all areas of growth - physical, social, emotional, and cognitive.
Auditory Integration Training
Hearing challenges can impede development. Auditory processing disorders make it difficult for children to make meaning of what is heard. Sound sensitivities cause children to hear “too well.” Along with overwhelming the auditory system and causing auditory processing difficulties, this can be extremely painful for some children.
Children who are successful academically have all of their developmental milestones solidly in place. This gives them the ability to sit still and focus, remember, imagine, see and hear clearly, and process information efficiently.
