As a qualified teacher, I became more and more aware of the need for children with concentration, reading and learning difficulties to develop cognitive skills to improve concentration and focus.
As we – as parents and educators alike – are all aware, without the necessary skills to master the basics of reading, comprehension and dedicated concentration, success as a scholar and achieving high results are practically impossible.
My love for children inspired me to want to make a change in these children’s lives, not only to help them acquire the knowledge and skills to reach their full potential, but also to bolster their self-confidence, their believe in themselves and to assist them to ultimately be fully functional and educated adults.
I believe that my background as an educator is advantageous and will assist me to recognise additional shortcomings linked to teaching and learning. I will, therefore, be able to adapt my classes to address the areas where Biolink could make a difference and to also assist and alleviate some of the pressures which teachers experience in the classroom.
Through Biolink Attention Training in Uitenhage, I wish to reach children from all socio and economic backgrounds and to re-awaken a love for learning.
My academic background include a BA Human Movement Science degree which I completed at the University of Pretoria in 2004. I obtained a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and as an additional qualification I did a 2 year course acquiring a Therapeutic Reflexology Diploma, focusing on enabling patients to develop and progress to a healthier lifestyle.
At Biolink Attention Training, we offer support, hope, answers, and solutions for children and adults with ADHD and other learning disorders or academic challenges. We also provide resources and training toward the continuous professional development of teachers, as required by die South African Council of Educators.
Study after study confirms children today are struggling more than ever before with academic, social, and behavioural issues that impact their success in school.
We want to take hands with parents and teachers to ensure our children get the best support and assistance when having academic or learning challenges. We strongly believe that the role parents play in the school system should be clearly defined, and teachers should be the inspirational leaders of a diverse world.
The only way we can do that, is by empowering parents and teachers. We want to generate new knowledge through a broad array of workshops, research materials, and supportive information, and use the content for classroom strategies.
