New Podcast from "The Brain Health Movement"

Sally Goddard Blythe was invited to contribute to a series of podcasts "Conversations with World Leading Experts" on the My Mighty Quinn Podcast. Her episode is entitled: A Mother's Conversations with World Leading Experts: "Ready or not for School?"... How Immaturity in Aspects of Physical Development impacts Learning, Emotional Wellbeing and Behaviour 


From The Brain Health Movement:

"Sally Goddard Blythe, an expert in child development, discusses the importance of physical development, motor maturity, and primitive reflexes in children's learning and behaviour. She explains how social factors, changes in modern life and limited movement opportunities can contribute to learning struggles and behavioural issues in children. Sally emphasises the need for a comprehensive approach that addresses the root causes of these challenges and provides individualised remediation. She shares success stories of children who have experienced improvements in confidence, academic performance, and social relationships through programs that focus on neuromotor development and reflex inhibition. The conversation explores the convergence of medical, educational, and parental support in addressing neurodevelopment challenges in children. Sally Blythe discusses the implementation of a developmental movement program in schools and the research that supports its effectiveness. She also emphasises the need to establish what should be considered normal neuromotor skills in children and challenges the current paradigm of children's development. Sally provides advice for overwhelmed parents and encourages them to pursue alternative paths for help. The importance of understanding the underlying problem and remaining curious and hopeful is highlighted. The conversation concludes with a focus on viewing children's development from a biological perspective and putting development back into education.
