Welcome to Integrating Thinking
We look for underlying reasons why our clients experience functional and learning difficulties.
Integrating Thinking is a Neuro-Developmental Education organisation driven by a desire to help families, children and adults with difficulties in learning, work and social situations. We help by looking at underlying developmental sensory & neuro-motor maturity.
Integrating Thinking uses, promotes, and teaches non-invasive techniques to assess and address developmental immaturity that can limit the learning process and cause difficulties in sport & social situations.
As a parent, you may have noticed your child has difficulty performing tasks that should be quite easy, even though he/she may be quite bright and intelligent. Their teacher, or group leader, may suggest that: “They could do better.” “They are not meeting their potential.” He/she may be fidgeting regularly, daydreaming, not paying attention or listening. They may be described as: “easily distracted”, “Not trying hard enough”, “Can’t sit still.” They may be anxious and reluctant to try anything new.
As an adult, you may have learned to cope and develop strategies to avoid situations requiring reading and writing. You may have developed other skills to counteract difficulties with inattention, co-ordination and balance. But, at the end of the day, you feel exhausted because you’ve been working so hard at an unconscious level to ‘stay in control’.
As a practitioner or teacher you see your clients and students aren’t quite meeting their potential because there seems to be something missing. They can’t sustain attention. Learning is excessively hard and even their balance and co-ordination may seem to be effected. You want to help address that challenge.
