Myrom Kahaner

I am a Coordination Quality Therapist (neurodevelopmental therapy), registered with the Complimentary Therapist Association. I am also a retired Psychotherapist registered with the British Association of Psychotherapists. My work integrates elements of occupation therapy, physiotherapy and martial arts. I originally trained in Israel in the Elbaum method www.elbaum.co.il and have practiced in the UK since 2004. I specialise in dyspraxia, dysgraphia, dyslexia and dyscalculia. I work from my clinic in north London and in schools, both with statemented children (as part of their statement) as well as with other children in early intervention 'motor skill' groups (mostly in prep schools), preparing children for increasing academic pressure. In each setting, I provide direct intervention for children as well as advice and training for teachers, SENCO’s, parents and key workers. Over the last 25 years, more than 80% of the people I worked with have benefited from overcoming their problems. They learned to deepen self-belief and improved their self - esteem and confidence.

My extensive training, coupled with childhood experiences of learning difficulties, gives me a mixture of qualities, from which my unique style evolved. My biodynamic approach encourages challenges and enthuses children to exercise their bodies.

The programme applies different exercises targeted at maximising coordination ability. My passion for body-work led to the development of other exercises, which further help to build up efficient body control.
