Welcome to Solutions Without Drugs!
My company is dedicated to helping teachers, parents, and professional show children how to focus, feel calm, and self-regulate by using simple, fun movements before any activity. As a reading specialist, I have watched children do a movement for less than a minute and improve their reading skills, change their behavior, and feel more confident and proud. All of this and more without the use of medication.
A few years ago two parents came to me at an after-school program asking for help with their child’s ADHD behaviors. They knew how unique and intelligent their 7-year old son was and did not want to subject him to stigmatizing labels, drug side effects, or personality changes brought on by medication. I started developing movements that helped little Chet focus, calm himself down, and feel positive about his unique temperament. We all celebrated!
Now I teach teachers how to make movement a regular, natural, enjoyable part of every class. I teach parents how to use movement with their children at home and on the go so that their children have tools to self-regulate. The movements are safe, easy, and fun. And best of all, they work!
I’d like to hear from you. What are the challenges you face with children’s behavior? What would you like to know about Children’s Brain/Body Balancing and the workshops? Let’s create drug-free solutions for children together!
