COMMITMENT IS AN ACT NOT A WORD
- To reduce the effects of disabilities on the overall development of the child.
- To optimise, as far as possible, the course of the child's development.
- Introduce the necessary mechanisms of compensation, elimination of barriers and adaptation to specific needs.
- To avoid or reduce the appearance of secondary or associated effects or deficits produced by a disorder or high-risk situation.
- To attend to and cover the needs and demands of the family and the environment in which the child lives.
- Helps to develop and enhance the brain functions of babies at different levels: intellectual, physical and affective, through games and repetitive exercises.
- It promotes physiological, educational, social and recreational conditions.
- Stimulates the process of maturation and learning in the areas.
- Orofacial dysfunctions and deficits in oral coordination to produce oral language.
- From more complex cases such as demutisation of sounds to their affectation.
- Speech disorders.
- Voice disorders.
- Language and communication disorders.
The main objective of speech therapy is to treat all affected areas related to speech, language and thought, through individualized therapies to meet the needs of each child.
Our main objective in the psychomotor sessions is to develop in each child the motor skills necessary for an integral growth, which allows them to adapt to the environment that surrounds them. In order to do this, we begin with the "foundations", their body schema and from there we tackle all the basic motor skills, movements, balance, coordination, lateralism, temporal and spatial perception, autonomy and social skills.
Today in BOREALIS we find more and more cases of children with learning difficulties, which are manifested mainly in reading and writing. The relationship that exists between learning and psychomotor skills is more than proven, hence any alteration in motor development in early childhood can cause difficulties in the early years of primary school. We believe that a good motor development during the first years of life is a guarantee for their personal growth in the future.
PEDAGOGICAL SUPPORT AND COGNITIVE STIMULATION
Learning is the process of acquiring knowledge through study, exercise or experience, but without motivation it is difficult to achieve objectives. Motivation itself is essential for learning, but it also plays an essential role in other factors such as attention and memory.
Our team works from the needs that children may present: difficulties in the acquisition of reading-writing, attention, comprehension, reasoning, memory... motivating them and providing them with the necessary tools that can positively and effectively influence the children's learning process.
In BOREALIS, in Child physiotherapy we carry out guidelines, exercises and therapeutic intervention manually to solve motor problems that may be present, and give the child the motor skills and physical skills necessary for their development in society and the environment that surrounds them.
There is always an individualized work and a specific treatment plan for each child, pursuing objectives such as: mobilizing the necessary body segments and gain strength and muscle mass, work of the muscles involved in breathing, to improve respiratory mechanics (in this area we work in close coordination with the area of speech therapy), performing massages, stretching and elongation of the retracted muscles to relieve contractures and muscle pain. Improve and regulate muscle tone with specific therapies such as the Bobath Method, among others. Improve balance and coordination in the different postures (sitting, kneeling, semi kneeling, standing and walking) to achieve a correct and independent walking.
As you can see, physiotherapy works in areas of the body that are closely related to psychomotility and speech therapy. Therefore, in our centre we carry out a multidisciplinary treatment, which is a treatment that complements some therapies with others in order to build the basis for achieving the PRINCIPAL OBJECTIVE, which is TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF EACH CHILD with whom we work.
When we speak of sensory stimulation we refer to the input of information from the environment to the nervous system through the senses to elaborate sensations and perceptions. This is the first element on which any learning is built, as it is the first stage of the development of basic cognitive functions (attention, memory) and allows the development of higher cognitive functions (problem solving, reasoning, language and creativity).
The acquisition or capture of stimuli is the beginning of the process of memory, where attention and perception play the main role. Subsequently, the stored information will be used to operate and reason. Thanks to the senses, and exploring the environment through movement (action and experimentation), the process of assimilation and accommodation is produced, which allows for the construction of learning and the understanding of the world around us. This process takes place naturally in all people from birth.
If our action is aimed at favouring sensory development, we will not only be broadening the baggage of stimuli received, but we will also be facilitating interaction with the environment and the cognitive world. The richness of sensory stimuli benefits the development of thought, intelligence and language.
BOREALIS TO WATER
If there is a facility or an ideal material for developing children's motor skills it is... THE AQUATIC ENVIRONMENT! The water allows us to work in a playful way all the motor skills necessary for the good development of children. The possibilities that the aquatic environment offers us is to interiorize easily the three corporal axes of the movement, since it allows us to move in the three spatial dimensions, improving our spatial perception and that of our own body.
With all these possibilities and creating an environment of safety and confidence, children learn to swim without any difficulty and develop all their motor skills, balance, coordination, movement, etc.. It also offers us the opportunity to improve our personal and hygienic autonomy and above all the social area.
The sessions are given in small groups on Tuesdays and Thursdays. To face playing the swimming capacity is the most appropriate scenario for a good learning. TO WATER DUCKS!
AUTONOMY WORKSHOP IN STUDY AND HOMEWORK
These workshops aim to help young people manage their schoolwork in a more organized and profitable way, allowing them to get the most out of their time. It is aimed at children from 6 to 14 years old and is taught from Monday to Thursday from 16:00 to 18:00 hours. OBJECTIVES:
- AUTONOMY IN THE STUDY: To study daily the contents explained in class and then to carry out the tasks of the day.
- AUTONOMY IN THE WORK: Carrying out schoolwork in the established time without the help of an adult except for resolving doubts.
- GOOD BEHAVIOR IN AND OUT OF CLASS.
- RESPECT THE ESTABLISHED STANDARDS, inside the centre and the classroom.
- RESPECT PARTNERS AND TEACHERS, with appropriate communication, tolerance of others and solidarity when necessary.
SOCIAL SKILLS WORKSHOP
The importance of social relations in the integral development of any person is fundamental for a fuller and happier life.
In the case of children it is even more important, as it determines their self-esteem and confidence, in themselves and in the environment that surrounds them.
A child with social resources will be able to face, day by day, his relationships between classmates, have a correct relationship with his teachers, enjoy his free time with friends, go to the park with the desire to overcome new challenges, in short, have a positive and active attitude towards life.
In the Social Skills Workshop, we work and play in small groups to increase and improve these skills; communication, self-esteem, emotions, group work, tolerance and solidarity, how we behave in different situations, and so on.
The human being is a social being by nature, it is fundamental to have a good development of social skills during childhood that will forge our personality and the success of our lives will depend on it.
CHILDREN'S WORKSHOPS (0 to 3 years)
