Frequently Asked Questions
Before investing time, energy and resources into neurodevelopmental movement most want to know:
What kind of clients do you work with?
Adele works with all ages, from infants to seniors.
Will this work for my child/me?
In nearly all cases, parents who are doing consistent neurodevelopmental movement with their children see noticeable improvements in behavior, emotional maturity, and learning. Children frequently feel more calm and focused. They also experience more joy, greater stamina, better posture and improved self-esteem. Adults will usually notice more calm and focus quickly and become aware of their ability to move through life more easily. Caveat: you get out of it what you put into it.
How much time does it take?
Everyone is unique, so the answers to this question varies. In general, plan on doing 15-30 minutes of neurodevelopmental movement and play, most days a week with your child at home. For children with greater challenges, more time may be required. Most adults need 10-15 minutes most days of the week.
When will I see results?
Result times range from quick and dramatic to gradually building over time. Most see some changes within a few weeks of consistent practice; significant progress within 3 months or less. However, for full integration and best results for long-term life and learning effectiveness, it may be recommended to do movements for a prolonged time.
Movement Feeds the Brain As our kids head back to school one of the top concerns is their ability to maintain their attention. Most school systems are not set up for optimal learning conditions because of having to sit for long periods of time.read more

It’s like the lights have come on for our son and we are so very happy. The changes my husband and I are seeing are nothing short of amazing! His confidence, speech, connections, and strength are amazing us. After just four weeks of implementing your exercises, he is doing things an OT has been working on for almost two years.
We feel blessed to have crossed paths with Adele. Her therapeutic approach incorporates body work and exercises involving specific movements aimed at increasing brain function and new neural pathways. Instead of trying to find ways to “fix” the problem, Adele works to find the root of the concern and build a stronger foundation. She also took the time to provide parental education, focusing on ways in which we can not only help our daughter, but also help ourselves and the rest of our family. Read MoreJ. Teague
Adele evaluated our son and recommended exercises to do at home with him to integrate the latent reflexes that were not integrated neurologically due to our son’s constant seizure activity disrupting his normal development. After just three weeks he could do things he couldn’t do before; ride a bike, a scooter, skateboard, and roller skate! His teachers were also amazed at his progress. Read MoreA mom on a mission
