Therapy centre for kids with learning difficulties

Icandoit Therapy Centre offers therapies that are drug-free, non-invasive and neuro-developmental in nature. This means that our therapies follow the natural development patterns that children go through to develop the brain and the body. We provide therapy for children struggling in the following areas:

- Concentration, distractibility, hyperactivity
- Reading, writing, spelling, visual perception
- Coordination, balance, posture, muscle tone
- Anxiety, physical timidity, poor self-confidence
- Auditory processing, auditory sensitivity, speech, language


Therapies offered to aid development


Every child is born with a set of primitive reflexes (sometimes known as “survival reflexes”), which should be inhibited or controlled by a higher part of the brain during the first year of life.
If these are not inhibited at the correct time they remain “active” in the body and can interfere with subsequent motor development, visual functioning, eye-hand coordination and perceptual skills. Frustration, hyperactivity and hypersensitivity can be additional symptoms, as the child struggles to perform daily tasks to his or her true potential.

The INPP Programme comprises a series of specific physical exercises based on the natural movements a child develops in the early years. The exercises help to correct any gaps in earlier development and retrain formative reflexes that support a child’s development and progress. The exercises are done at home in just 10 minutes a day, and progress is reviewed by the practitioner on a four-weekly basis.

2.Solisten Sound Therapy Programme

Because the ear is a sensory integration system, it plays an important role in areas such as:
• Learning disorders.
• Emotional disorders (stress, fatigue, anxiety, loss of confidence)
• Communication disorders (auditory sensitivity, receptive listening)
• Attention disorders.
• Pervasive development disorders (Autism, Asperger's Syndrome etc.)

The Tomatis® Method makes use of:
• Specific, filtered music.
• Vibrational bone conduction of sound in addition to air conduction.
• The electronic Gating system that ensures the brain receives optimal stimulation is unique to this method.

Solisten® is the portable version of the original Tomatis® Method. This means that the programme can be followed in the convenience of your own home. A listening session lasts 2 hours. To use the Solisten®, it is recommended that three 13 day phases of 2 hours per day are carried out, with a break of 4 weeks between phases.

3. Interactive Metronome

Interactive Metronome (IM) is a brain-based rehabilitation, assessment and training programme developed to directly to improve the processing abilities that affect attention, motor planning and sequencing. This, in turn, strengthens motor skills, including mobility and gross motor function, and many fundamental cognitive capacities such as planning, organizing and language.

Interactive Metronome is a structured, goal-oriented programme, challenging a patient to synchronize a range of whole-body exercises to a precise computer-generated beat. Participants are instructed to synchronize various hand and foot exercises to a reference tone heard through headphones. A patented audio and visual guidance system provides immediate feedback. The difference between the patient's performance and the computer-generated beat is measured in milliseconds. The score provides indicates timing accuracy. Further information on www.interactivemetronome.com.

What next?

In order to determine if your child can be helped by INPP, Solisten® or Interactive Metronome, a Screening Questionnaire must be completed. Should this indicate that Icandoit Therapy Centre can assist your child, we will then schedule a Parental Interview to explore your child’s developmental history in more detail.

Complete the online Screening Questionnaire on www.icandoittherapy.co.za (under Process), email us on tracy@icandoit.co.za or call 082 920 5457.
