Executive Function Assessment

Executive function is a set of mental skills that we use every day to learn, work, and manage daily life. Trouble with executive function can make it hard to focus, follow directions, and handle emotions, among other things.

Symptoms may include:

  • Struggling to start or complete tasks
  • Trouble prioritising tasks
  • Forget what they just heard or read
  • Have trouble following a sequence of steps
  • Trouble switching focus from one task to another
  • Get overly emotional and fixate on things
  • Have trouble organising their thoughts
  • Have trouble keeping track of their belongings
  • Have trouble managing their time

Due to brain plasticity, many of the core cognitive abilities can be strengthened and developed through training, individualised to your needs.

Brain Dominance Profiling

Brain Dominance Profiling is an invaluable tool used to determine how individuals are uniquely ‘wired’. We are able to determine how a person functions, identify and understand their strengths and areas of development and explain what happens to their overall functioning under emotional stress (anxiety).

Primitive Reflex Therapy

Retained primitive reflexes can lead to developmental delays related to disorders like ADHD, sensory processing disorder, autism, and learning disabilities .

The persistence of primitive reflexes contribute to issues such as coordination, balance, sensory perceptions, fine motor skills, sleep, immunity, energy levels,
impulse control, concentration and all levels of social, emotional, and academic learning .

We can assist you with an individualised primitive reflex integration program. This will involve the specific movements and
patterns that make it possible to retrain your brain, and control the center for the reflexes.
