A TEACHER'S WINDOW INTO THE CHILD'S MIND
And Papers from the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology

BY SALLY GODDARD

It was over twenty years ago that A.E. Tansley stated, "Far too long teachers have concentraed upon the psychological problems of the child, or the socio-economic environments, instead of asking the question: Does this child have the equipment he needs to succeed at the educational level asked of him, and the methods imposed on him?"
It was this question which first led Peter Blythe at the Institute of Neuro-Physiological Psychology to search for a physical basis to learning difficulties. He found that detection and analysis of primitive and postural reflexes can be used as a valuable tool in assessing the level of remediation required by a child, as it indicatesd the developmental stage a child has reached.
Now Sally Goddard, researcher and therapist at the Institute explains precisely just how this research is is applicable in the classroom. It not only impacts the way the teacher perceives each child, but indicates which teaching methods will be the most helpful in dealing with individual problems teachers are faced with every day.
These ways of thinking have been incorporated and developed by teachers in Sweden, Germany, Australia, and are beginning to spread throughout the world. For if the basic equipment essentail for learning is made strong, then teaching methods can become effective and the child can start to blossom. In our world there is little room for academic failure, and if a child seems to lag behind, we must continue to ask the question: why?

LEARNING PROBLEMS AND NEURO-DEVELOPMENTAL DELAY

BY PETER BLYTHE, N.D.T. and SALLY GODDARD, N.D.T.

PART 1: Background and Rationale. 35 min
PART 2: Reflex Evaluation Techniques and the Impact of the Reflex Structure on Behavior. 30 min
PART 3: Case Histories and Controlled Studies. 24 min
"Learning disabled", "Hyperactive", and "Attention Deficit Syndrome child" are the labels carelessly attached to any child who does not function well in the classroom.
To give these children simply more of the same methods which have failed before is a waste of time. We must look to see what skills in hearing, vision and hand-eye coordination the children lack and then find ways to improve these functions. Using the recent research which attests to the plasticity of the brain and know-how based on decades of research on the impact of the reflexes on the development of children, the Institute of Neuro-Physiological Psychology in Chester, England, has developed a standardized method of evaluating the reflex structure of a child and designed a program of intervention that is both easily and inexpensively implemented and individual to the particular needs of the child, a program that may take no more than four to twenty minutes a day.

BRIGHTER CHILDREN! BRIGHTER TOMORROW!

BY LYELLE PALMER

In Part 1,One of the aims of Goals 2000 is to have every child ready for first grade. At Winona State University in Winona, Minnasota, Professor Palmer shows how to reach that aim by making use of the brain research of the last 25 years.
This research has shown us that no matter what the background of the child, no matter what experiences the child brings to school, we can boost the developmental abilities. We can speed up the child's response time, hand-eye coordination and increase the attention span. All this can be achieved with fun activities that make school a delightful experience which allows children a taste of success. These methods do not put stress on academics before the child is ready for those, nor do they interfere with the goals and emphasis of any particular school.
The emphasis is on integrating stimulation joyfully and playfully into the school program to PREVENT LEARNING PROBLEMS rather than having to deal with them later.
In Part 2, Professor Palmer shows specfic techniques for pre-school and early elementary grades. These principles can be used easily for home schooling or, for that matter, by any parents who wish to make sure their children will become successful and happy students.
