Organising the Brain Through Movement

Each body tells us a learning story.

All of us are born with a set of primitive reflexes that assist us in developing, growing and surviving. In many cases, these primitive reflexes become inhibited (no longer active) by the time we we turn one. Sometimes, they can get stuck (remain active) and lock the nervous system in an incomplete, or immature state, and the body has to compensate. This can manifest as difficulties with home, school or social life well into adulthood. It can also impact confidence, mood, learning and behaviour.

If your child is experiencing problems, they may have a neuro-motor immaturity as an underlying cause and benefit from participating in one of our programs.

What We Do & How We Can Help

 

Welcome to Connect Movement Therapy. We see children with many different concerns, ranging from emotional, behavioural and learning difficulties to physical challenges. We use our in-depth knowledge and experience of neurodevelopment in a multi-disciplinary approach with parents, their children, schools and other therapists.

By working with us in a non-invasive program that is tailored to individual needs, we put in place the foundations to assist in maturing a child's nervous system. This is accomplished through programs that draw on practices of functional neurology, occupational therapy, vision therapy and digital technology. The result is a calmer, more-regulated individual that can move past the previous concerns and concentrate on achieving their potential in behaviour, social engagement and ability to learn.

At Connect Movement Therapy, our services encompass three types of programs, each of which has been established by well-renowned researchers and industry thought leaders. You can learn more about these programs across the pages linked below. When you are ready, you can then contact us to learn how we can help you and your family.

Programs

Melillo Method

INPP Method

Integrated Listening

We offer in-person programs for those located in or traveling to the Gold Coast area of southeast Queensland. Programs in this format are primarily conducted at our clinic. However, for pre-arranged intensive programs, we can conduct those at other locations in the Gold Coast.

We also offer hybrid and fully-remote programs for those who can only attend our clinic on occasion or not at all. This program format includes the same initial and on-going assessments for the sessions that cannot be attended at our clinic, conducted instead by phone or digital video meetings. The hybrid and remote approaches include all of the resources needed to conduct therapy exercises at home, with progress milestone assessments being conducted on a frequency best determined for individual clients.
