Children with Downs Syndrome are known to respond particularly well to the Brainwave Programme and dramatic differences can be achieved within a relatively small space of time.
As high tone is rarely a hindering factor, mobility can be achieved quite easily, with any low tone being addressed within the Programme. If a child is unable to sit, or kneel, they can be taught to sit, sit to stand, to kneel, to crawl, to stand independently, and to walk.
Of course, most children with Downs Syndrome may eventually achieve each of these milestones in their own time, but by providing a structured and manageable set of exercises which parents can carry out with their child at home for around 30 minutes each day, their learning can be accelerated significantly and milestones can be reached very much sooner.
The benefits are considerable. In becoming mobile, a child achieves independence much more quickly and the capacity to learn is immediately and substantially increased. They are able to explore their environment and experience wide-ranging sensory stimulation and so learn and develop in the same way as every other child.
Children become more socially mobile and are able to interact with adults and other children. They are able to exercise choice, select what to eat, what to play with, where to go, and what to investigate within their environment. Ultimately they are able to take part in all the usual school and extra-curricular activities they so enjoy.
