The Child Centre Method 

Dr Alweena Awan is the Founder and International Director of The Child Centre Method - Learning and Behaviour Improvement Program® (CCM). CCM is the culmination of over twenty years of experience of working with children, as teacher, researcher and therapist. 

The Child Centre Method® is a;

"systematically integrated program that allows the practitioner to firstly identify the individual challenges that each child/client faces and secondly, to create a unique program for that individual”.

Retained Primitive Reflexes are the keys to understanding many child learning and behaviour issues and the treatment of these forms a major part of The Child Centre Method®.

What are Primitive Reflexes? 

Primitive and Postural Reflexes are programmed automatic movements which develop in Utero for our survival. An example is the Moro reflex, which allows a newborn to take its first breath. Problems arise if the reflex is retained, as the body is held in “fight/flight” mode. As a baby grows up, this primitive reflex is replaced by newly learned movements, in a process of integration.

However, when the process of integration is not complete, the reflex will have an adverse effect on a child’s emotional well-being as well as how the child learns and behaves.

ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, difficulty with reading and writing, concentration and emotional management are examples of issues related to retained primitive reflexes.


How does The Child Centre Method help with Retained Primitive Reflexes?

The Child Centre Method®assessment allows the practitioner to build a very clear picture of what is going on at a neurological and behavioural level with the child. It includes reading and writing tests, sound and visual mechanics, as well as physical movement capacity tests, to determine the child’s issues and the Primitive Reflexes involved.

When these have been accurately determined, a unique plan can be created for the child. The plan is determined by selecting elements of the programme to suit the specific needs of the child.


What sort of results should I expect from The Child Centre Method?

When a Primitive Reflex has been integrated the changes in child behaviour are always noticeable. You will have removed a stress or several layers of stress from the child. As a result, your child be;

• calmer and more stable, happier.

• less shy or less aggressive.

• have better coordination.

• have improved spelling, writing and comprehension.

• have improved coordination.


How many treatments in The Child Centre Method does it take to effect Retained Primitive Reflexes?

The number of treatments really depends on of the severity of the condition at hand. On average between 5-10 treatments will have a significant and measurable impact on your child's development. When the assessment is carried out parents will have a very clear picture about what is causing the child’s issue and how many treatments may be required.

Upcoming Workshop

Attuning to Full Potential Intensive 15th—18th October 2017 930am-5pm Cork City Ireland Cost €850

This is four day course that will teach you to muscle test. No previous experience is necessary. You will learn to self- balance as well as balancing others using a very simple and powerful system.

We are full of potential but blockages, self-sabotage, resistance & belief systems hinder us from connecting to our essential nature — from Attuning to Full Potential.

  • Become a Therapist or gain a tool for working on yourself.
  • Learn how to use muscle testing and Icons in combination to help regain balance.
  • Using muscle testing, the body selects the Icons needed for the healing process to begin.
  • Tap into Universal Energy, clear old programs, memories & stress via the Icons.
  • Activate the dormant codes within your DNA allowing transformation to begin.
  • Reconnect to your essential nature, raise your vibration and reactivate your embedded knowledge.

Attuning to Full Potential (AFP) is a new kinesiology modality that uses vibration icons monitored by muscle response to effect profound change in the client. The gift of AFP is that it allows the practitioner to work on themselves at profoundly deep levels, thus attuning them to their own full potential and unlimited growth. As this process develops one’s effectiveness as a therapist increases dramatically.

The vibration AFP icons are like a menu to release blockages from and find a new state of balance towards your full potential. With AFP you clear physical, emotional, structural or energetic blockages as well as belief systems, to help find the pathway to make new choices.

APF helps to raise consciousness by activating the dormant codes within your DNA, therefore allowing the process of transformation to begin. AFP symbols help you to reactivate your embedded knowledge by attuning to it, finding the right wave length to access you own potential, and accessing the body’s innate wisdom.

Its simple to use as via muscle testing the body chooses the icons that are required for the process of healing to begin.
