Petö Method - Conductive education | Imprimer | C'est une approche d'éducation intégrée des enfants et des adultes porteurs de handicaps secondaires à des lésions cérébrales. Elle est imaginée par Andräs Petö,médecin pédagogue hongrois dans les années 40. L'éducation conductive permet à l'enfant cérébrolésé de mobiliser, par un travail d'apprentissage guidé, ses ressources neuro motrices, cognitives et sensorielles et ainsi d'apprendre à trouver des stratégies lui permettant de résoudre les problèmes auxquels il est confronté tout au long de la journée. "Chacun doit terminer ce qu'il a commencé" Ce principe s'applique aussi aux personnes handicapées qui semblent si souvent ne pas savoir finir une tâche. La façon d'y parvenir doit être imaginée ; C'est l'ambition de l'éducation conductive. Les résultats des recherches actuelles sur les différentes modalités de la plasticité cérébrale ainsi que certaines théories de l'apprentissage trouvent un écho dans la pratique de l'éducation conductive.

Castillo Morales Method - Communication The Middle Way About a little thing called 750 Words Mirror box - Ramachandran La técnica Alexander: el mejor uso de uno mismo | Dossiers | DW.DE | null Frederik Matthias Alexander nace en Tasmania, Australia, el 20 de enero de 1869. A los 19 años se forja un nombre como recitador de Shakespeare. En su momento de mayor éxito, una ronquera crónica, que se va agudizando cada vez más, no le permite terminar sus funciones. Emprende una larga travesía, sin resultado, por médicos y foníatras. Deduciendo que era algo que realizaba en el escenario lo que provocaba su problema en la voz, comienza un intenso trabajo de observación sobre sus conductas al recitar. La "Bahía dormida" en el Parque Nacional de Tasmania. Con la ayuda de un espejo, en una búsqueda minuciosa de sus hábitos, observa que antes incluso de hablar tiraba su cabeza hacia atrás, provocando que la musculatura del cuello se tensionara innecesariamente, que la garganta se deprimiera y que su pecho se contrajera. Emprender el cambio ¿Qué hacer ante esta fuerte costumbre? Alexander viaja a Inglaterra y a Norteamérica. Aportes científicos de ayer y hoy Sir Charles Sherrington.

Abilities are cognitive or mental characteristics that affect one's potential to learn or to perform. During the twentieth century, there have been significant changes in conceptions of ability, moving from atheoretical models that have their basis in measurement and psychophysics to ones that are based largely on cognitive theories of human performance. History Ability testing in education began in 1905 in Paris when Alfred Binet along with his assistant Théodore Simon developed the Binet-Simon scale to solve the practical problem of reliably differentiating between educable, educable with special help, and uneducable children. The task-sampling approach may be contrasted with another tradition in ability testing, a basic elements approach. Modern Views Information processing. Hierarchical model.

THE DEVELOPMENTAL INTEGRATION TECHNIQUE Website : Brushing The purpose of the first part of our treatment (the reflex-inhibition) programme is to complete those stages that are lacking. Stimulation of specific neural pathways will inhibit early foetal reflexes and other early reflexes that 'block' the development of the adult reflexes that are required for developmental maturity. The treatment is carried out at home and requires a commitment of no more than 10 minutes per day to perform a series of brushing exercises or some slow movements. Treatment is easy and very effective. Foetal Reflexes: Foetal reflexes are known to be present from approximately the sixth week after conception. Primitive Reflexes: These begin to develop while the baby is in the womb ( usually from around 3 months) and will gradually diminish in strength after the baby is born. MORO - (The baby startle reflex): The Moro Reflex begins to develop from approximately the 10th week after conception and should be fully inhibited by the time baby is 4 months old.

#11: HOW TO INCREASE YOUR INTELLIGENCE © Copyright 1994 By Frederick Mann, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED DedicationThis report is dedicated to Dr. Win Wenger, to my knowledge the world's foremost increaser of intelligence. I first made contact with Dr. At a certain point I realized that a "solution" is no solution, unless you can profitably and viably produce, market, distribute, and implement it. NoteThis report should be read in conjunction with Report #15: How to Achieve Ultimate Success. Also, this report is incomplete. Introduction"Freedom Technology" is one of our key concepts. Dr. Essentially, Dr. Defining IntelligenceMy Webster's defines "intelligence" as: "the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations; the skilled use of reason; the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment or to think abstractly." As I indicated in Report #05A: The Nature of Freedom, definitions result in consequences. And what is an "intelligence test?" But there is a much more powerful intelligence increaser.
