Oh dear

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear

Plasticity of the Brain
...physiotherapy, movement and brain plasticity are deeply connected... conductive education can create new connections... older brains can be changed through physical exercise...

This line of thinking may lead to an interesting position:

Cerebral palsy is a physical disability, not a mental disability and it can be alleviated and overcome by physical activity.

The writer of these words makes makes 'audio and video content for broadcast and broadband'.

Watch out.

  1. I have added a Comment to both of Karen Johnson's postings for which you provide links, Andrew. I noticed that in doing so to the 'brain plasticity' posting, my Comment is awaiting 'moderation'. I wonder if it will be published?

  2. I am sure that she will regard you as the very spirit of moderation.

    Andrew.

  4. Have another look Andrew, at latest postings. (http://bit.ly/6GpiPz). I am intending in a further Comment to return to her post linking "cerebral palsy-physical disability-alleviated-physical activity" as being the basis of the mainstream school position.

    BTW Something else. What do you make of this blog post: "How Development Psychology's Marriage to the School System Distorts Our Understanding of Children"?

  5. For those who chance to read this thread, I was thinking that Karen and I had moved the conversation beyond what she calls "tut-tutting", at http://bit.ly/6GpiPz)

    Take a look, and maybe you'd like to join our conversation there.

    From a rather unpromising start, I for one have enjoyed it so far.
