Introduction to HANDLE – Level 1

One day that will forever change your perspective of learning and behavioural challenges!

The Level 1 Introduction to HANDLE is a great opportunity to get acquainted with HANDLE, what it is all about, and the science that underpins the principles of the approach. Not only will you gain an understanding, you will also leave with practical tools that you can implement at home, school or work, including six HANDLE activities.


• Join us as we explain our unique approach and leave you with practical, simple yet neurologically complex activities to implement at home to build a solid foundation for happy learning and a happy child and adults, too.

• Be forever changed in your approach to life, and addressing learning and behavioural challenges!

• See yourselves and others through new eyes. This course introduces an interactive approach for identifying and treating the root causes of difficulties and perplexing behaviours, across the life-span.

• Leave with practical tools and knowledge to apply to all school, work and life situations.

• Implement simple but effective tools and activities in your work to remove obstacles and enhance learning, participation and confidence.

• Become familiar with the neuroscience behind the approach, that synthesises systems thinking, compassion, non-judgement, neuroplasticity, and nutritional science into a unique, effective approach that educates, inspires and empowers, the individual and family to become Everyday Neuroplasticians™.
