Developmental Therapist Delina Robair M. Ed. is looking to help unlock the true potentials of students ages 4 to 12 by offering keys to learning through a developmental program aimed at concentrating on the communications of the brain and the body.Robair has spent more than 25 years as a teacher and, along with other doctors, helped to develop “The Pyramid of Learning,” to which she has earned the exclusive rights of teaching and administering on the West Coast.The Pyramid of Learning demonstrates how a child’s thinking grows. At the base of the pyramid are the motor skills — the foundation from which all skill development derives. If this base is weakened because of body/brain miscommunications, it can result in learning problems in one or more areas, including academics, or developmental problems such as ego, self-esteem, self-confidence and trouble interacting socially among peers.If left untreated, the child could fall behind in school, resulting in frustrated students, parents and teachers who have no other solution but to label the child as having Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or even as being Dyslexic.
Robair has observed through her years of experience that children’s learning is closely tied to how their bodies develop in conjunction with their brains. “My research, based on assessing more than 2,000 children, shows specific relationships between motor skill performance and academic performance,” Robair explained.
What Robair and her program can offer to children and adolescents is a solution — a solution that is both fun and unique. It seeks to improve motor skill integration based on the 13 developmental milestones, often resulting in improved coordination, improved reading and writing; improved regulation of behavior, focus and ability to follow instructions.
The program has also shown an improvement in self-esteem and confidence.
If a child or student is displaying a performance that doesn’t match their potential, even though there are no recognized learning difficulties, the program could be beneficial.
The program could also be beneficial to those students with high potential and who are eager to enhance or refine their skills; even children with diagnosed learning abilities and who exhibit lagging motor skills can benefit.
By creating an environment where a child’s brain and body work to make connections in an orderly and systematic developmental program, the results can maximize their learning potential and enhance the quality of their school and life experiences.
