The Training Process: Developing Neural Networks

The training program is comprised of physical exercises that are suited to the findings of the evaluation. Even when an individual works alongside one of our trainers on a weekly basis, it is recommended that the individual practice the exercises 3 times every day for 5 minutes each time.

Usually due to distance/location, some families may choose to train at home instead of alongside a trainer. In this case, the trainee should follow-up with one of our trainers once every 3-4 weeks so that adjustments can be made and the person's progress can be evaluated. It is important to remember to keep the training simple and brief. Otherwise, the trainee may experience more resistance to the training than is necessary, potentially proving counterproductive.

Prior to adolescence, it is customary for a parent to be present during all training sessions. The parents' presence is important because the child undergoes many changes; the training room becomes a place for the child to express himself while having to embrace the trials and successes of activating muscles and therefore neural pathways that he/she was unable to activate before.

Around the age(s) of adolescence, it is customary for parents not to be present in the training room. At this age, most teenagers' emotional reactions are quite strong; they begin to want to be separate from their parents and consequently experience resistance in wanting them to be present during training.

When a child develops and masters physical difficulties, his/her self confidence and sense of joy increases. These improvements change the general feeling at home and, as a result, affect the entire family. Everyone in the family, including the child, usually has to adjust to the new developments in some way.

Adult training is one-on-one throughout the length of the program.
