The LAUNCH Program 1 is designed to strengthen the lower and mid-level foundational processing systems; the brain systems that form the basic foundation for physical coordination and self-regulation, spatial awareness and attention and concentration. The lower and mid-level foundational processing systems also support the higher more complex foundational processing systems, which form the foundation for listening and reading comprehension, learning and everyday life performance.
Instructions guide you through the programs in a scripted step-by-step manner, which make them easy to administer. Instructions are received through our website, one section at a time. There are 9 sections in the LAUNCH Program 1. We recommend doing 30-60 minute exercise sessions, 3-4 times per week until the program is completed. The time length required to complete a program will depend upon the child’s developmental level and cooperation, and the coach’s efficiency in delivering the program.
If you as a parent do not think you have the time or energy to make such a commitment, ask a relative or friend if they would be willing to help you out or hire someone (mature teenager or adult) to deliver the program to your child.
The programs are not just for children who are struggling in school. Strengthening the foundational processing systems will improve a child’s performance in all areas of life, even if they are advanced for their age.
You will be required to print off charts and worksheets and have the following items:
