Take Advantage of our Neuro-developmental (ND) Screenings
Nancy Williams will be providing ND Screenings in Spring, TXMay 1st, 2013. If you’d like to get a snapshot of your child’s current developmental function, then please email Nancy ( email@example.com ) for appointment times, location details, and answers to any questions you may have.
For more details about what screenings cost, how they differ from a full professional ND Evaluations, please visit this page on our website.
Little Giant Steps, a neurodevelopmental/educational consulting group, has been providing services to those who struggle with learning for over twenty years. Remember, you can improve the levels of academic success – learning difficulties do not have to last a life-time! Conact Nancy today, space is limited. firstname.lastname@example.org
It may or may not come to a surprise to you, but our children’s processing ability, short-term memory, and lower level brain organization is not up to par these days! Teachers are telling us, even day-care centers have contacted us, because of the “gaps” they are seeing in cognitive, language, fine motor skills, and comprehension difficulties in so many children! Up to par, means our children, would be effectively functioning at grade level. Especially their auditory processing abilities, which effects their learning ability globally. Little Giant Steps (LGS) does screenings to give that information to parents and teachers throughout the State of Texas, and offers you a free opportunity to discover whether your child is functioning at grade level with our FREE AUDITORY TEST KIT! (ages 5-adult for the test). Select Tiny Tots Auditory for Preschoolers. Little Giant Steps (LGS) has helped improve the lives of thousands of children, teens, and adults through the Neuro-Educational Approach. This methodology does not teach coping and compensating skills. Instead, we work at the root level (foundational level) of function by following what nature has provided with the use of neuro-plasticity of the brain. We can change a struggling child labeled by the symptoms they display into an individual that functions at grade level or above. We address the symptoms, we alleviate them and do away with the label and dysfunction permanently!
What’s Causing This?
I’ve said it so many times, mainly because it is true….With the invention of car seats, carriers, walkers, jumpers our infants have been left out of the required developmental stages. Each stage creates significant neuro-pathways and connections between the brain and body. Developing strong connections is an important part of mapping the brain to the experiences of the body, limbs, vision, hearing, thinking, storing and recalling information. God created the baby’s central nervous system to develop mostly after birth. Initially there are just reflexes, and necessary bodily functions to live. The brain doesn’t come with all the sensory system to manage all required bodily (visual, tactile, auditory) and cognitive (thinking) functions. The brain has to learn through experiencing their arms, legs, toes, fingers, all of their parts, sensations, and stimulation the world has to offer for the baby to grow and develop as intended. Miss the foundational steps and stages, and there is gaps in function. Gaps that can be remedied!
One Of The Most Important Requirements
It is through the baby being on its tummy all waking hours that the grand scheme of development is to occur. First, the baby must be allowed to “experience” the sensations, temperatures, movements, textures, pressure against its body, arms, legs, face. It is in learning to raise their head the required muscles are strengthened to begin that long journey to balance, eye tracking, rolling over, sitting up. It is through cross patterning by belly crawling and creeping (up on all 4 limbs) so the lower levels of the brain is organized, and eventually standing erect, walking, skipping, running, racing, playing competitive sports where coordinated thought and action can reach its fullest potential. It is in the fullest state of foundational development that the greatest abilities each person has can reach the maximum design created by God.
Jan Bedell, the Brain Coach®, has developed many tools and programs that will take what may appear as a learning issue, and turn a neuro-deficiency into an asset of neuro-efficiency or “LEARNING MADE EASY”! That’s what the Neuro-Educational Programs such as DEVELOPMENTAL FOUNDATIONS is all about. It allows you, the parent, to change the course of your child’s academic life. You can make things so much better for your child when you assist them to process information at their grade level, to have greater, faster, accurate cognitive abilities, motor skills (fine and gross), improved language skills, expression, retention of information, fast recall of events, memory, and mind/body integration with superior sensory integration!
Discover What’s Possible
Can you imagine when you can take your child from experiencing what it is like to be on a dial up Internet connection to a high speed line? Everything works so much better, the ability to function at a high capacity is available, and the brain and body can respond with full force in physical, cognitive and appropriate emotional response. Leave behind the emotional component of frustration in learning, discouragement, anger, and lack of self-esteem, because all these symptoms go away for good!
If you ever wanted to see your child, teen, or even adults become confident about their math skills, then give them the opportunity to permanently secure the basics (math-facts) in the brain by using the fun, and confidence-building Rapid Recall System. Every part of this program addresses not only basic mathematical requirements, but it is crafted with neuro-pathway building techniques. Input is king with this program. It takes a total of 7 minutes a day! (9 minutes for multiplication) to create a long-term solution for those struggling or hating math. Little Giant Steps founder Jan Bedell, the Brain Coach® and creative force with the Rapid Recall System, has over 20 years of teaching experience and has specialized in the area of Neuro-Education. This program has been serving her private clients since 2005, but as schools were finding more and more students coming to school with poorly developed processing skills, short-memory deficits, and disorganized brain function; they requested our services.
Jan took on the challenge to bring this wonderfully successful math facts program to all. There are public and private schools utilizing this system, because it works! There are home school families, and regular families who want their child to succeed in math who use it, because it works! It works for students who are gifted, typical, and challenged. Why is it so successful? Because it works at the lower levels of the brain where organization occurs, it stimulates the brain to create new and more efficient neuro-pathways. With greater speed and accuracy of the connections between the brain and body, the visual, auditory, tactile abilities are improved. Therefore, learning becomes easier! Order NOW!
Jan Bedell, The Brain Coach ®, created this very successful math-facts program in 2005. It has been tested both in home school, as well as, in private and public schools. All research shows it outperforms other programs, and the reason is because it is based on the Neuro-educational Approach.
Little Giant Steps leads those who need to learn math and retain it through a unique process. Unique to the “typical math-teaching methods”, but not to the foundations of development of brain organization, improved processing (visual and auditory), and the importance for understanding sensory input, frequency, intensity, and duration and sensory output.

Listen to those who’ve used it:
“My daughter had a very difficult time ‘getting’ her math facts. We tried a lot of different approaches but nothing worked. Still searching, we tried the Rapid Recall System and everything changed. This technique triggered something in her brain. Somehow, she began to know her facts before we studied them! I am so impressed and thankful for Rapid Recall. I recommend it to everyone with elementary students!” –S. Phillips
“”In 2007 we adopted an 11-year-old boy from Kazakhstan. His prior circumstances limited his exposure to math. When we started using the Rapid Recall System , the light came on! He eagerly whizzed through addition, subtraction, and multiplication. He felt so ‘smart’ when he progressed to the next group of facts. We are halfway through the division module and his confidence has never been higher! Thanks so much,!”–Heather Smith
“Math fact proficiency has always been a difficult issue for my early elementary students. My co-teachers and I decided to implement the Rapid Recall System. This simple input technique revolutionized our way of teaching. It works!” –Susan Short, Math Teacher, Huntsville, Alabama
“After eighteen years of teaching, I finally found a math facts system that works! Even my lower level students flourished. The Rapid Recall System was so easy to use—and it only took seven minutes a day! At the end of the year, the test scores proved that the students had retained their math facts. This is a fantastic product!”–Tanda Trussel, West Texas Elementary, Stinnett, Texas

You might ask:
Why are my children struggling with schoolwork and in life?
Why can’t they follow directions or remember to do their chores or brush their teeth?
It’s not your child’s fault, but may be a symptom of a brain foundation problem called “poor auditory processing”.
Years ago people believed that the brain couldn’t change, that it was hard-wired and a person was just stuck with what they had. Now we know that with specific game-like activities, the brain can gain abilities just like a muscle can gain strength. In this webinar you will hear about the wide-reaching effects of poor processing, how to test for it and what can be done to improve this vital skill.

Little Giant Steps is delighted to sponsor “a time of learning” for parents who want to see their child’s learning made easy. If you’ve read our blog at all, you will know that not only do we serve those from babes to seniors in helping their brains become more organized and their thinking more efficient; we also increase academic scores for the gifted, typical, and learning disabled. Some say, “We understood your worked with ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism, Down Syndrome, and other learning disabilities.” Yes, that is true, but we also recognize our techniques work just as well with those who have unique talents, but need better lower level brain organization, or who have difficulty with coordination, memory, behavior control, etc. Humans come in all different flavors, if you will.
Since we work with the natural enhancement of neuro-development, we can address universal human conditions in a variety of circumstances. It’s not magic, it’s all about development and increasing the communications between the brain and the body. We assess the individual, both academically, and their neuro-developmental status, then an ND educational specialist will write a program to address those areas where function is lagging or non-existent. By stimulating the brain and body, the activities address many of the brain and body systems; we create neuro-pathways and develop improved function. Just like a guy who trains with weight training to gain strength; the neuro-educational programs we provide also develops strength and increased function in a broad range of skills. Reading, Math, Comprehension, Organized Thinking, Increased Memory Function are the by-products of what we do. When a person reaches their “grade-level” of function, then their brain and body will continue to serve their own individual quests in life. Humans continue to develop throughout their lives. We are not static. We can go forward or backward, depending on what we do with our brains and bodies, how we nourish ourselves or our children, and the experiences we encounter. Read what our parents say about the experiences they’ve encountered.

Every day the Neuro-Educational Specialists see children, teens, and even adults move from being people who struggle with learning to folks with confidence, increased comprehension, and faster processing of the information they encounter. There is no magic. It’s all done by addressing functional issues in the brain. Mostly those developmental steps or stages that may have been missed for a variety of reasons.
Here’s what a reader has said about the information we have on our blog. I hope you, too, will join the growing number of people who now know that having learning issues is not a life sentence! It doesn’t matter whether an individual is gifted, typical, or has special needs. Ones potential can be realized with the right application of a Neuro-Developmental/Educational Program . That is Little Giant Step’s specialty! We’ve even created an at-home program for those who desire to make a difference in their children’s lives. It’s called: Developmental Foundations. Investigate, gain knowledge, then you can make a difference in someone’s life, as well.

Why, at this time in our history, when we know more about what an infant and developing child needs to gain optimum brain and body growth, many parents are unaware? Little Giant Steps has been doing all they can to get the word out so parents can be raising healthier, brighter, and happier children.
What is most distressing, from our vantage point, is that learning disabilities have become an epidemic force in our educational systems. Teachers are being more and more stressed by the wide diversity of learning readiness in their students. More children are coming to school with low processing abilities, disorganized thinking (which means a disorganized brain), and behaviors that reduce their ability to receive, comprehend, store, and recall information.
The Neuro-Educational Specialists know that symptomatic functional learning deficits are typically caused from early developmental insufficiency (lack of required developmental activity). They see in their daily practice of working with children and their families that these issues can be eliminated by doing specific brain stimulating activities with a child for whatever time it takes for the brain to develop the neuro-pathways or connections. As one researcher states, “Those undeveloped (incomplete) neuro-connections are in the brain just waiting for the developmental stimulation process to complete the circuit.”
All Parents Need to Know
A child must have focused attention from the parents for its whole health, and for its complete and fullest potential to be realized. They need sleep ~ sleeps that’s recommended. Most of our kids are sleep deprived in our country! They need nutritious and balanced food intake. They need to be stimulated and nurtured by their parents. They need to be allowed to be on the floor during their waking hours, from the time they are new born babies, until they have mastered the art of walking, because it is on their tummies that their neuro-musculature develops, their brains and bodies become mapped, so the impulses of thought and action, cognitive thinking, comprehension, organizing thoughts, processing information and all the many things for which the brain is responsible can be efficient and effective. I’ve said this many times, but it bears repeating,”Becoming neurologically efficient is like going from a dial up connection on the internet to a high speed optical line.” Both ways work, but the dial up line leaves people frustrated, with many items never being completed, and almost all, eventually, give up!
Please, if you’re a parent, take a look at the free articles we provide for your journey to becoming a well informed parent who desires the very best for their children, and not just give them lip service with good intentions. You’ll be surprised how much you can learn and how much you can do to change the course of your child’s academic journey. Leaving children in infant seats, jumpers, swings, high chairs for most of their day, is literally putting their early and complete neuro-development in jeopardy.
Little Giant Steps is truly the best head-start program ever. Yes, there must be parent involvement, but that is at the heart of achieving the best parent a child could ask or pray for.
