Living with a learning disability can be challenging for the children who have them as well as their parents and teachers. The road may be frustrating and it can be hard for parents and role models to help instill confidence in children who have difficulties when it comes to things like reading and writing. For kids with dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, Downs syndrome and kids on the autism spectrum, things like recreational taekwondo can have more of a positive effect than adults may think. Here at Sensory Taekwon-Do we provide a wide range of recreational services in Ridgewood NJ that can help kids regain confidence while also building unique skills.
Here at Sensory Taekwon-Do, our instructors are not only black belts in taekwondo, but they are also well-versed in a variety of different learning and behavioral conditions that affect children as well. Our director, Dr. Escamilla, is a 2nd degree black belt in taekwondo but he also has advanced training in neurology and functional medicine with an emphasis on early childhood spectrum disorders. By combining these practices, Dr. Escamilla has been able to create unique programs along with instructor and 5th degree black belt, Master Kim. These programs actively engage all of the senses, allowing kids on the spectrum to experience a physical activity like taekwondo in a way that makes sense to them and is beneficial to them in harnessing useful skills and modes of understanding as well as communication. With recreational services in Ridgewood NJ as well as a number of specialized programs, kids on the spectrum, including kids with dyslexia, can learn new skills and master them in a way that makes sense to them.
For children with conditions like dyslexia, their brains work a little differently and different approaches to learning can help them in various other aspects of their life while also helping them build confidence.
