*Please note- this blog post was written during my time at Brain Fit Academy Inc. I have since continued this amazing work under my own company- Brain FUNdamentals LLC. I hope you enjoy!
“Are the challenges similar, among the kids at Brain Fit?” a family member recently asked me.
I immediately answered “no” and as I started to think about the different clients I work with I realized that although there are definitely some similar things about them, generally-everyone is so different!
Now, I’m not talking about different personality-wise, that is a given since they are all different kids. And of course, we work with different ages, so at the moment I have five-year-olds all the way through to teenagers- adults can be seen too! But that’s not what I’m talking about either. What I’m talking about is the difference in their needs.
All these kids were brought to Brain Fit Academy by their parents because they are struggling with something. But the “somethings” are so different.
- It may be anxiety so they working on calming.
- Or maybe it’s sensory issues.
- Or maybe it’s balance and coordination, or learning challenges.
- Or- maybe it’s a combination of all of the above or even something else entirely!
It doesn’t really matter the exact reason why they came to Brain Fit. What’s amazing to me (when I stop to think about it) is that our program can service, can help- this wide range of needs. Everyone is so different but the work we do at Brain Fit is so individualized that we can help so many clients with such different needs!
In order to understand this a little better, I think you need to understand how widely unintegrated reflexes can affect a person:
Unintegrated (active) primitive reflexes can cause a myriad of issues. From fears, to sensory issues, to balance, coordination, handwriting, sitting still, attention, focus, reading, sleeping, confidence….Oh my- I could continue on, but I think you get the picture!
So, when you start to think about all of these ways that kids, teens and even adults can be impacted it’s no wonder that we have clients that can be so different from each other!
And you know what? I think that is just really awesome. The fact that I work for a company that can service so many kids and families, with so many different needs! And, that the owner/director (Pam Formosa) and myself, as well as the other Brain Fit Academy coaches see positive changes with (I dare say) all of those clients. They come to us with so many varying needs, and our program works for all of them- in some capacity or another. We aren’t a “one-size-fits-all” program. It’s more like a “one-program-is-individualized-to-help-anyone” type of deal.
- Yes, everyone is so different.
- Yes, they come to us with different needs.
- Yes, we enjoy the challenge of working with such different kids.
- And yes…the program has the potential (and ability) to help all those who pass through our door!
It truly is a rewarding experience to be able to see changes with clients- different changes, based on different needs, but changes none-the-less.
Everyone is so different, but we love it. Come to us with your differences…
We welcome you and want to help.
