How Young Children, Caregivers, and Adults Benefit:

  • Attention and concentration training
  • Language and  comprehension development
  • Self-awareness and resilience as  learners
  • Social ease 
  • Restorative newborn care and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit support  
  • Trauma-informed learning
  • Multi-cultural appreciation
  • State-of-the-art Safe and Sound Protocol by Dr. Stephen Porges
  • State-of-the-art Integrated Listening Systems Home Program for Focus Systems

      Neuroscience  has  radically changed  our understanding of how we learn and how to teach more effectively.  We now know  that the feeling of safety is key to opening the portal of learning for young and old.  We also know the probable cost of chronic stress during early childhood on the physiology, emotions, and brain development that can block an individual’s capacity, resilience, and true potential to grow, learn, and lead a fulfilled life. 

     A little stress is motivating, but chronic stress  during pregnancy and early childhood shapes unconscious,  automatic adaptive responses that others often misinterpret as intentional and personal.   In reality, they are likely to be  neurological with little conscious control and are protective.  They often  mask sensory overload, fear,  low self-confidence, anger, shame, and a desire to escape.

     At, we combine brain science,  attachment support, and the Polyvagal – ease body language to collaborative with young children, families, caregivers, as well as adults to develop awareness and regulate distracting discomfort in their body and mind.  Our  unique mind-body approach to learning promotes  safety, resilience, and access to untapped potential within individuals.

     Sometimes adversity occurs during early infancy, in utero, and during delivery,  as in medically induced births.  Young infants need to be held and cooed, experience skin-to-skin more than hospital  medical staff in NICU have time for.  We provide in-hospital  infant care in  Neonatal Intensive Care Unit stays.   

     Remember undetected and unresolved trauma stays in the body and may be experienced  through life.   But there is hope for repair, resilience, and renewal due to the brain’s neuro-plasticity, the ability to change with the experience.

What are the outcomes?

     Many learning delays and diagnoses have in common  inattention, sensory processing ,  language delays, and limited memory.  What if the following symptoms are protective neurological responses that can be addressed with our multi-sensory and attuned programs at

      • social engagement
      • attention 
      • concentration
      • memory functions
      • auditory processing
      • sensory integration
      • communication
      • comprehension
      • motor coordination
