The MOVE TO LEARN program is a simple, movement program, based on the natural movements of babies and toddlers. It addresses the underlying functional deficits that children with various learning difficulties & disabilities have shown. By integrating left and right brain functions these exercises help to mature the vestibular system as well as any retained primitive reflexes that should normally have disappeared by the time a child is attending school.
Some signs of neuro-developmental delay are:
- Poor concentration
- Emotional presentation
- Poor impulse control
- Weak balance and motor skills
- Weak posture, sitting position
- Weak academic performance, organisation of work, copying from board
These things can have a major impact on academic learning and the Move to Learn program has included the inhibition of persistent primary reflexes as a core element in its program. Comprising of a warm up and 9 simple movement sequences it covers all the essentials that every child needs to establish an effective foundation for academic learning, and in the right order.
The program has been used extensively around the world with exciting results and has been adopted by a growing number of today’s professionals, specialising in areas like LD, ADD, ADHD, Autism.

It gives me great pleasure to recommend Sandy as a teacher and as someone who has a loving gentle heart for children. Sandy is a capable, experienced and effective remedial teacher, she not only has a number of years experience in helping children learn to read, spell and write but she also knows how to prepare children to learn academically. Sandy shares my approach to children with LD, of looking at the ‘whole child’. They are intelligent children but are invariably immature in one or more areas of their neurological development. The Move to Learn program helps them to become ready to learn and then able to benefit from traditional remedial work. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
