"It's Too Hard!" Seeing Neurodevelopmental Challenges with HANDLE® Eyes"

Workshop on Saturday, May 11, 2013, 10:30am to 12noon at the Shoreline Library, 345 NE 175th, Shoreline, WA 98155. Cost: Free

Certified HANDLE Practitioner Peg Simon, presenter.

ADHD, Sensory Integration Disorder, Learning Disabilities – all are labels describing symptoms and behaviors. When daily life isn't easy to manage, school, work, and social relationships all become harder, too. Maybe it's a learning challenge; maybe it's sensory issues; maybe it just seems too hard to focus and pay attention. When the cry is, "It's too hard!" it may be time to look at the neurodevelopmental factors involved, and see how sensory/motor issues, immature brain pathways, and even the food we eat can influence learning and behavior. HANDLE is a non-drug, gentle, holistic therapy that is effective for all ages.

About Peg:
Peg’s background as a reading tutor serves her well in working with a varied clientele of children and adults with learning, attention, and behavior challenges, including those with Asperger’s, ADD, sensory integration challenges, dyslexia and learning disorders. She believes that everyone deserves the chance to grow into the person they were meant to be and the importance of the mind/body/spirit connection. Because of that passionate belief, she sought out training in HANDLE to provide the missing pieces of the puzzle, initially for the children she tutored, and now for all her clients.

She worked for The HANDLE Institute for 5 years, first at the front desk, where she spoke with many clients and heard their stories; then, as outreach coordinator and Judith Bluestone’s personal assistant. She is the author of several articles about HANDLE and its success in restoring hope and assisting others to grow into their full potential and is published in Seattle’s Child magazine, Northwest Educator, and Washington Diplomat.
