If your child has been diagnosed with a learning disorder, you might have thought that learning martial arts is something that is not in the cards for her or him. But at Sensory Taekwon-Do, that is our specialty. We offer a program that is designed for children on the spectrum, a revolutionary method that is backed by the latest in neurological studies. We now know that exercise is key to creating healthier and more effective pathways in the brain. So if your child has been labeled as any of the following, you can take advantage of what we have to offer regarding 07621 taekwon-do: autism, PDD, aspergers, ADHD, ADD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, down’s syndrome, or learning and memory problems.
How does it work? We have programs that are custom designed to suit your child’s unique needs based on their neurological profile. We don’t use a one-size-fits-all approach or treat your child like a number, but rather as the distinct individual that he or she is. We know that the symptoms that occur in children on the spectrum can be very different. Our program works to stimulate the parts of your child’s brain that deal with balance, body awareness, muscle coordination, strength, and working memory. We also make nutritional coaching a component in our program, which is complete and comprehensive and designed to promote growth and improve connectivity in her or his brain. This is the foundation of our 07621 taekwon-do.
In order to achieve the very best results, we involve multiple senses to draw your child in totally. This includes specially selected music that is used to stimulate right brain and left brain functions, incorporation of visual elements by having your child follow the lead of our instructor’s moves, and an emphasis on vestibular work to promote and maintain balance. And wall climbing, as well as the use of balls and other tools and equipment acts to engage your child’s tactile sensation (sense of touch). Students use the proprioceptive sense to concentrate on proper positioning during the performance of the exercises. All of this serves to make our 07621 taekwon-do an efficient way to learn for your child.
