If you have a child with a learning disorder, you will want to know that our Teaneck autism taekwondo practice offers a fun and effective way to help your child better function with his or her learning disorders. Improvements are also seen in children who are affected by autism. At Sensory Taekwon-Do we use an active program of martial arts to help children live up to their full potential.
At Sensory Taekwon-Do, our director is Dr. Kerry Escamilla, D.C. Dr. Escamilla has advanced training in neurology and functional medicine with an emphasis placed on early childhood spectrum disorders. Since 2006 our program has used the whole brain/whole body approach to treat autism through the use of the martial arts. Dr. Escamilla himself is a 2nd degree black belt, and knows the benefits many children receive by working in a consistent and highly structured environment. When you bring your child to Teaneck autism taekwondo, he or she will benefit from an active physical program that involves, sensory integration, brain balancing activities and nutritional intervention – this is what is meant by the whole body/ whole brain approach.
A child’s learning disorders can be improved through this martial arts program. Our Teaneck autism taekwondo program helps children with: autism/PPD/Asperger’s; ADHD/ADD; dyslexia and dyspraxia; and learning and memory disorders. ADHD is the most common of all diagnosed behavioral disorders in children. ADHD indicates that there is a problem with inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity or a combination. Dyslexia is a developmental reading disorder and dyspraxia is a motor learning disability that affects gross or fine motor skills. Learning and memory problems are reflected in the IQ. All of these developmental problems are helped as the brain becomes more adept with sensory integration and brain balancing activities. Nutritional adjustments also play a role. Many students have been helped by this exciting program that incorporates the martial arts. We also offer special physical training classes for children with sensory disorders; adult Taekwon-Do classes; attention for unique case children on the autism spectrum and weight loss and detox exercise programs.
