The Pyramid of Development, Learning and Wellbeing

The Pyramid of Development, Learning and Wellbeing used at Learning Discoveries Psychological Services, provides a holistic over view of our multi-disciplinary approach, using a combination of state-of-the-art intervention techniques, that are drug free and non-invasive. All these strategies aim to improve brain function, optimise learning and increase emotional and physical wellbeing in adults and children and is proven to have positive outcomes when dealing with learning disabilities in adults.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Learning Disability

At Learning Discoveries we pride ourselves as being one of the most experienced centres offering Neurofeedback therapy for ADHD and associated learning difficulties.

Neurofeedback therapy for ADHD can be thought of as “exercise for the brain” and it allows our practitioners to deliver a drug free, non invasive and safe method of improving attention and mental control in those who exhibit symptoms of ADD or ADHD, learning disabilities and emotional disorders can be directly addressed with Neurofeedback therapy.

The advantage of this type of training is that it can be done in conjunction with medication, cognitive behaviour therapydiet and physical therapy.

From our experience of working with children and adults with ADHD and learning difficulties we can report that in most cases, the improvement in brain function continues long after the training has stopped. We are familiar working with ADHD in adults and learning disorders in children.

Learning Difficulties

Rosemary is a qualified teacher with over 30 years in special education, school counselling and educational psychology, providing a comprehensive assessment battery that looks at many different aspects of learning. Regardless of the types of learning difficulties we are prepared to offer helpful services. Rosemary provides individualised remedial teaching for children and adults.

Nutrition, Diet and Food Intolerance

Nutrition is the cornerstone of brain function and hence, this issue is addressed prior to the commencement of all of other interventions.

We perform a Food Intolerance Test, which enables us to do a quick and reliable intolerance test, with results available on the same day.

Through the Fitgenes program which analysis a number of genes to determine what nutritional and lifestyle factors influence physical health, emotional well being and brain function (nutrigenomics). Nutrigenomic interventions then target an individual’s uniquedietary needs. People with ADHD and learning difficulties are known to have more food intolerances and genetic variations than the normal population and is the reason why this testing is incorporated into an assessment of learning difficulties.

Working Memory

To improve working memory deficits common in the ADHD, Learning Difficulties and head injured populations, the Cogmed Working Memory Training program is used. This evidence-based cognitive intervention has a decade of peer-reviewed research behind it and has been shown to significantly improve attention, focus and the ability to work independently in children and adults with ADHD learning disabilities.

Counselling & Parent Education

To complete the holistic approach we also provide counselling. A client-centred approach is adopted and includes: goal setting, breaking old behavioural patterns, stress management and health and lifestyle issues. Parent education regarding school based and behavioural issues is undertaken in a nurturing and caring environment to encourage and empower parents to address these issues effectively at home and school. Parent education is quite effective in dealing with learning disabilities in children.
