“AWAKEN” THE BRAIN WITH PURPOSEFUL MOVEMENT ACTIVITIES TO HELP YOUR CHILD REACH THEIR FULLEST ACADEMIC POTENTIAL.
When we try to “mask” the challenges your child is facing, the problems still remain below the surface.

Your child can make great strides and huge progress by making some important changes…

When you decided to have kids, you probably never thought you’d be in this position. You may feel the weight of what your child is going through, but many times it is outside your control. Now, more than ever, is the time to “heal” the brain and calm the symptoms so your child can reach their fullest potential. When was mask problems, it becomes a temporary solution. But, when we work to “heal” them, we arm our kids with the tools they need for a much brighter future.

Do you ever feel like…

Your child or students aren’t learning like other kids.

Other kids seem to grasp concepts much better, while your child or students are falling behind.

You can’t understand why your child or students can’t focus and attend.

Your child or students’ have trouble following tasks and retaining what is being taught because they are always distracted.

You are lost and overwhelmed with where to start when it comes to therapy.

Therapy sounds like a good option, but you don’t know what activities to start with and which ones target your child or student’s specific needs.

You constantly have to explain your child or student’s emotions and behavior.

Their emotions run the house and they’ve been labeled “bad” or overly emotional in school.

You are lost and overwhelmed with where to start when it comes to therapy.

Something feels off with your child or students learning, social skills and emotions, but you were told they will grow out of it.

If you answered yes to any of the above, your child or students may benefit from purposeful movement activities to organize the brain for better learning development.

Kids who experience disconnections in the brain may struggle with behavior, emotions, sensory and learning.

You probably never thought you or your child and students would have to go through some of these challenges. Suddenly, you realize things are not getting better. If anything, the gaps are only getting wider. Other kids and parents may see these types of kids as bad, weird, out of touch, socially backward or head in the clouds.

But most don’t realize when a disconnection happens in the brain, it also happens to the body. A house will crumble without a good foundation. The same goes for the body. When disconnections in the brain happen, emotions, behavior and learning can also crumble. This may cause you a lot of heartache, frustration, stress or even anger when you or someone else doesn’t understand what your child or students are going through. Kids may experience any number of these issues when they have not yet established a strong learning foundation:

  • Lack of attention and focus
  • Fidgets or lays on their desk at school
  • Has sensory sensitivities to loud noises, smells, textures and light
  • Chews on pencils or sucks on clothing
  • Has weak head control or poor core muscle
  • Sits in the W-position or is known as a “toe walker”
  • Trouble with handwriting
  • Can’t track words on the page
  • Has trouble following directions
  • Can’t complete tasks

And that’s just the beginning. There are many other signs or red flags that may label kids as bad, uncooperative, weird or emotional.

It’s sad, but many kids are often passed over

Kids are often passed over when they don’t fit into the “normal” box most people expect them to be in. No matter if it is at school, among friends or in social gatherings, people tend to avoid them. It’s hard to understand their frustrating behaviors, confusing emotions and tiring lack of social skills.

But, when you understand that the child hasn’t yet built a strong learning foundation in the brain, the delays in learning, behavior and emotion begin to make sense.

YOU can improve your child or student’s learning foundation with key strategies that build any disconnections in the brain!!!

You may not know it yet, but purposeful movement activities create a change in the brain in two ways:

  • They “awaken” the brain for learning and build bridges between the left and right sides of the brain so kids become emotionally grounded, attentive and focused, socially engaged and more aware of what’s being taught in the classroom.
  • They hardwire the brain for automated learning so they can focus more on what’s happening in the classroom rather than compensating for what’s happening to their mind and body.
Purposeful movement activities are powerful and mind-changing, unless they are used incorrectly…

Most people don’t mean to do brain-building activities the wrong way. They often find ideas on social media or a Google search or even from a friend or teacher. The problem is each child’s situation is unique and different. Some kids may struggle with one thing while his friend may struggle with another.

Because there are varying levels of disconnections in the brain, it’s important to start with the right strategies that target the child’s specific brain-building needs. All your efforts could be for not or months of wasted time if the right activities are not building areas of the brain that need it most.

We definitely don’t want to take steps backward.

The truth is, starting from scratch can be confusing and overwhelming. And, knowing where to start is sometimes the hardest part. Most of the information out there can be complex and not very straightforward. You may even find a mishmash of activities to do without knowing if that’s the right place to begin.

Using Integrated Movement Activities is what you need to put PURPOSE behind your child or student’s challenges so they can become more confident and independent.

I’ve worked with kids for 30 years now and have seen the remarkable changes in a child’s learning potential. Together with Tera Robinson, our team Occupational Therapist, we help parents and therapists like you start from the very beginning. It may have all started in our home state of Utah, but now we are now helping kids around the world with our courses and Integrative Movement Strategies.

We’ve never given up on our kids because we know how much potential each one of them has and how we can impact their future. The same is true for your child and students as you begin on this journey.

Sneak Peek into the Movement Activity Center

Types of activities you may find in the Movement Activity Center…

I know these purposeful Movement-based activities work, but I want you to see the successes as well. That is why you have 30 days to implement the activities and show me what you’re doing in your sessions, your activity plans and the strategies you’ve already been working on. If you’ve completed all that’s required in the first 30 days and are still not satisfied, I’ll happily give you a refund.

When you add it all up, joining the Integrated Movement Center is worth more than $940.

But, that’s not even close to what your investment will be when you join…

Is that Integrated Movement Activity Center enough for my child’s needs?

Does the Integrated Movement Activity Center replace our Occupational Therapy sessions?

This program does not replace the therapy you are doing outside the home. However, most kids only see a therapist once or twice a week, if they are lucky. The truth is, therapists need your help during the week or the child will progress at a slower rate.

These purposeful movement activities will not only support your child’s therapy, but they will also give your child the much-needed movement throughout the week that their body craves to focus and attend. Plus, therapy sessions can be upwards of $125 per hour, which is hard for most families, especially if insurance doesn’t cover any costs. Or, you may even be stuck on a waiting list to even get evaluated by a therapist, which could take months.

If your child could benefit from purposeful movement activities now, whether in therapy or not, it’s a great time to get started. The sooner we can build those bridges to awaken the brain, the more successes both you and them will see in school, at home and with their friends.

The Integrated Movement Activity Center is for children anywhere from three years old on up. Parents and professionals typically use these types of exercises for younger children through primary school, but they can also work with teenagers if they are delayed and willing to do the movements.

Members who sign-up on a monthly basis will receive access to a new video series and updated materials every 30 days. This option is especially good for parents so they don’t get overwhelmed by too many exercises at once or don’t know where to begin. Access to videos prior to 30 days is not permissible. 

Annual members receive access to all the materials and videos at once. This option is good for therapists and professionals who have students at all different levels and who need activities that are readily available.

You will continue to have access to the course as long as your automatic payments are in place. If you decide to cancel or you do not renew your membership, the account will be closed. The monthly membership is renewed automatically each month and the annual membership is renewed automatically on an annual basis.

We specifically geared the Movement Center toward parents and professionals in an effort to help both parties work together to provide the best care for their child or student. The center provides simplified terms and instructions so parents don’t feel the information is too technical, yet it is still informative enough for therapists to gain the full benefit.

Yes! We love to help professionals and therapists receive continuing education credit wherever we can. Once you have gone through the videos, please email us at info@ilslearning.com with the name, title and any other details you need on the certificate and we are happy to provide you with one.

The Movement Center is not approved by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) nor the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) due to the manpower needed to facilitate every state, country and organization requirement. However, we will help you in anyway we can to get the credit you need for joining the Movement Center.

The Integrated Movement Activity Center is approximately six hours long from beginning to end if you go straight through the course so it would count for six credit hours. However, most members work through the course in segments so it will take much longer to complete.

The Integrated Movement Activity Center is a one-stop shop for unique and targeted brain-building exercises designed specifically for helping kids build their core muscle, motor skills, balance and coordination, and much more. While you may be able to find exercises that build these areas of development online, they are very rarely all compiled into one location.

These activities also target specific areas of the body and the brain for growth and development rather than just normal every-day activities to keep your kids busy. They were designed and created with a specific purpose in mind. Out of all the books and classes we have read or taken, this is our own customized membership tailor-made to the knowledge and experience we have obtained over the years to achieve the best results.

The membership’s comprehensive and detailed structure is more helpful and cost effective than anything that can be found on Google.

If you want to see real results in your child or student, you have to be 100% consistent with the exercises. Once you have started the exercises, taking a break or cutting back will slow the progress or you may see your child fall backward in some areas. The best practice is to continue exercises consistently.

Even if a child does not have learning challenges or developmental delays, these types of movement-based activities are still important for all children and should be completed all the way through a child’s primary education if possible. These activities will help awaken the brain for higher learning development.

When you join the Movement Center, we will provide you with a list of the equipment and tools we use in all the videos. These are only recommendations. You do not have to have all the pieces of equipment in the videos we use and you can adapt the activities to what helps your child or student perform them successfully.

Even if the child uses no equipment, performing the movements is the most critical part. However, we find most kids are more willing to perform the activities with some type of object or tool while completing the exercises. “Fun” objects like ribbons, balls, bean bags and other items make it more interactive for the kids and they have a greater desire to perform the activities.

If you can’t access your account or if any of the videos are not working, please email us at info@ilslearning.com. We will assist you as best as we can or we will contact our IT team to ensure they fix any issues on your account. Turnaround is typically 24 to 48 hours depending on the issue.

If you need additional help with the exercises, recommendations or have general questions about your kids and students, please email us at info@ilslearning.com and we will provide you with all the resources and direction we have to help your experience be more successful.

Yes, your membership automatically renews on its monthly renewal date or its annual renewal date. Email reminders will be sent to members on the annual program prior to the membership renewing. These reminders will go to the email address we have on file so please check your junk or spam folders if you not see them in your inbox. Do not assume your membership is cancelled prior to the renewal date. You will need to manually cancel your membership when you login to your account or you must email us at info@ilslearning.com prior to the renewal date to cancel before your card is charged. Transaction fees do apply for those who cancel after their renewal date per company policy.

Yes! If you are no longer using the membership or you find your child or students have progressed to the levels desired, you can discontinue your membership. There is a cancellation option when you login to your account or you can simply email info@ilslearning.com. Please do not assume your account is cancelled simply because you stop using your membership. Payments are made automatically each month or each year and will not stop unless you cancel your account. There are no cancellation fees unless you do not cancel your membership prior to the next automated payment. 

Unfortunately, no. Access to the Movement Center works much like a streaming service where you only gain access when your account is active. Once you discontinue your service, your access is terminated. However, you are welcome to renew your membership at anytime

This situation rarely happens if you are following the correct cancellation process, but if you find yourself in that situation, email us at info@ilslearning.com and we will assist.

We understand that many of you have special circumstances, or you may even forget you have signed-up for the Movement Center. Life happens! However, there is currently a no refund policy once you sign-up for the membership. If you fail to cancel your monthly or annual membership by the time the automatic payment is issued, you have a three day grace period after the automatic payment to contact us for a partial refund. After that time period, the full amount applies.
