Intervention is available for all ages. Thanks to science in the 90’s we have learnt that the brain is neuro-plastic until we pass from this earth. We have been so excited over the years to work with persons of all ages and stages in their lives and to see results so clearly. Nothing ever is a cure, but function can be improved.
Do you or your loved one match any of the following?
- You may have struggled with a learning difficulty all your life and never had these current interventions available to you when you were younger. Therefor you have always felt that you underachieved for your actual potential.
- You may have had sensory difficulties when you were younger and had learnt to cope with them, but you feel that this may have affected your life choices in career, marriage etc.
- You may have struggled with a reading disorder and have been told that you would never be able to do anything about it.
- You would like to improve in your ability to play sport or increase your fundamental potential
- You may have been labeled as a child with behaviors when you were younger and never really achieved success in relationships in your life.
- You may have had a great childhood, but sustained a brain injury or concussion that changed your life course.
- Your attention is not what it used to be and you struggle to maintain your usual function
- You have always been disorganized and this is affecting multiple spheres of your life and frustrate your loved ones
- You may have had a traumatic emotional eventin your life that you have never totally overcome and this affects your quality of life in different ways.
- You may be struggling with stress, even low grade depression, anxiety, perhaps also difficulty sleeping.
- You would like to keep your mind agile as the advance stages of life approaches you.
Programs are available for any of these above. We do need to complete a short assessment with standardized norms and complete some questionnaires to determine the best fit of a program for you.

Testimonial of a 50 year old female
“Dear Ms. Le Roux,
Thank you very much for helping to turn my life around. As you know, I was diagnosed with a non-verbal learning disorder. Unfortunately, I received no referral for follow on care and I was left hanging until I found your center. Thank you for addressing my physical and cognitive problems and forming a treatment plan.
I would especially like to thank my therapist for all of her hard work and effort in helping me with the various exercises balancing, tossing bean bags, batting a ball, encouraging my feeble drawing skills, and playing Labyrinth with me. My husband is especially eager for me to play a re-match sometime in the future. I worked hard and had a lot of fun. My therapist knows when to push and when to kick back and laugh.
I never understood exactly how I made it through life stumbling along the way I did for 50 years. It is never too late to teach an old dog new tricks. Neuroplasticity, (that a brain can keep growing and changing) is a wonderful thing. I have a much better sense of balance and no longer have problems walking on ice and am no longer afraid of heights. My vision and hand eye coordination are much better. I can see a lot of contours of objects and my peripheral vision has improved. As a result, I am a much more confident driver, and don’t struggle with the computer as much as I used to. Being more in control of my body has also led to better organizational and learning skills. I am a lot calmer and less frenetic than I used to be. My thoughts come to me in a more organized format.
My hearing has greatly improved and I am busy catching up on all the lyrics of the top hits of the 1970’s and 1980’s. I cried when I first started hearing Billy Joel’s River of Dreams.
In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
My one regret is that my problems weren’t diagnosed earlier in life. Somehow I made it through elite schools like Phillips Academy and the University of Pennsylvania. I would have done much better academically and would have been able tocapitalize on more career opportunities if these problems had been addressed earlier in life. However, because of therapy, I am looking forward to the next half of my life where I will have a much stronger basis to do the things I want to do.”
