The ways in which neurological reorganization have helped my son is that are really addressing his neurological issues. It's neurological issues and developmental gaps that are underlying, that are the reasons for the behaviors that then get labeled ADHD and SID. And so we're doing a developmental movement therapy program that is actually going back and retracing the developmental movement that starts in utero, that babies do, that literally programs and develops their brain through all kinds of capacities, everything from tracking to fine motor skills to proprioceptive, being able to see your body and space. And we've been doing this program of daily crawling ad creeping and developmental movement programs for less than a year, and I see huge behavioral changes in my son. He's able to self-regulate. I see him actually be able to stay in a classroom. He's willing to try to learn to write, whereas before even picking up a pencil and trying to put a pencil to paper was excruciating. So I'm excited about the changes in my son and feel we have about another year to go, but I really feel at the end of this second year, he's gonna be a neuro-typical child.

Kathy Gordon

Parent Educator

Kathy Gordon is the single adoptive mother of a very spirited nine year-old boy, but was not prepared for the challenges of parenting a child whose brain was developed under stress. When her son was three, Kathy had the good fortune of taking parenting classes with Ruth Beaglehole, founding Director of the Center for Nonviolent Education and Parenting, (theechocenter.org), and she realized this powerful compassionate method of working with children was something she wanted to teach. She has been a teacher, director and coach most of her adult life. Kathy was certified as a Parent Educator through the Center for Nonviolent Education and Parenting in May of 2008, and will now continue her training by becoming a Certified Hand-in-Hand Parenting Parent Educator. Kathy works with families individually, teaches parenting classes and facilitates trainings for educators and schools communities. Her practice is called Unconditional Connection because we all long for connection, and we long to be unconditionally loved. We live in a society in which we are continually judged by our behavior. Kathy offers research-based information and tools to help people look underneath and beyond the behavior, so that we may be more unconditionally connected thus creating a world of cooperation and peace.
