Neuro Dynamix is a gross and fine motor intervention programme that gets to the heart of underlying issues that so many learners with barriers to learning experience. It is designed as an extensive and effective resource for those involved in ECD, school readiness and remediating problems with reading and writing. Neuro Dynamix is a school-based intervention programme in support of the SBST, as well as a home-based intervention programme for the home-schooling community.

NEURO DYNAMIX is for:

  • passionate teachers and parents who want to become masters at removing barriers to learning — effectively and permanently
  • schools that want to develop the capacity of their SBST
  • governing bodies that want to invest in their teachers to support learners who are failing to progress
  • businesses that want to make a difference by uplifting the youth of South Africa.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • adequate level of literacy
  • reliable internet access
  • no qualifications are needed.

ENGAGE IN THE INTERACTIVE NEURO DYNAMIX e-LEARNING PROGRAMME and:

  • become a Neuro Dynamix Practitioner in as little as 3 months
  • train online when you can, where you are
  • watch 66 training videos
  • deepen your insight with an online manual
  • answer quizzes to consolidate your knowledge
  • score 80% per quiz and qualify when you are ready.

RESOURCES INCLUDED:

  • a comprehensive kit with every piece of equipment needed for this INTERVENTION PROGRAMME delivered to your door (hula hoops excluded)
  • an all-inclusive test battery with assessment tools
  • access to an electronic secretary who does your admin (online platform) so you can focus on the learners
  • a differentiated INTERVENTION PLAN for every learner assessed
  • ongoing assessment and automatic adjustment of a learner’s INTERVENTION PLAN
  • online reporting
  • evidence of interventions and learner progress at the push of a button
  • access to online tutor sessions
  • an intervention that dovetails with the SIAS (Screening, Identification, Assessment and Support)

NEURO DYNAMIX is equally applicable for:

  • retained learners with a SNA-1 (Support Needs Assessment Form)
  • progressed learners with a SNA-1
  • learners who already have an ISP (Individual Support Plan) but need more differentiated support
  • learners with barriers to learning who need an ISP and who have not entered the remedial ‘system’ yet.
