At Oxford Integrated Learning Centre (OILC), we use a specially-design multiple approach called “Brain Integrated Program (BIP)”. This program consists of
Our methodology is based on the latest neuro-scientific findings in brain plasticity. It is now possible to achieve long lasting improvements in sensory, speech and language processing which will boost attention, understanding and memory. This can lead to significant changes in emotional, learning, social and daily behavior.
Brain Integrated Program (BIP) aims to develop new response, either in physical, verbal, behavioural or emotional reaction to external or internal stimuli. When aiming to develop new skills, we need not only to instil a new way of responding, but also dislodge the old, often subconscious and automatic, reaction. It’s a process of breaking existing and building new connections in the brain. Our methodologies concentrate mainly on the building of new skills by replacing the old habits. By combining different approaches it is possible to speed up the dislodging of old habits, while at the same time introducing new skills. This is likely to be a faster and more durable way of achieving lasting change.
We also provide Integrated Listening System (ILS) as one of our approach. What is ILS? The iLs methodology integrates music, movement and language exercises for the purpose of improving brain function. iLs programs are designed to be fun, and may be used on their own or in conjunction with other methods. We train for brain/body integration through a staged approach, starting with the fundamentals of sensory integration and then extending through more complex cognitive functions, including language, self-expression and social skills.
Speech-Tech is our very own therapy techniques for integrating oral reflexes using ARK Therapeutic tools. The combination of the right tools and the unique techniques that we created, we are able to help the children to integrate the retained oral reflexes. Retained oral reflexes are one of the reason behind speech delay, feeding and sensory issue.
At Gifton, we understand that every child is special and specific needs. Some children learn differently than others and some students may work on a level that is different from their peers. No matter, what is your child pace and needs, we are able to address each student’s special academic, physical, social and emotional challenges and work with you to help them achieve academic success.
The science of how children develop and learn is surprisingly new given the fact we have been educating children for many millennia. It is only very recently that scientists have started to investigate what happens in the brain during child development and how children learn, either formally in school or in everyday life. Most education systems we are using are still based on methodology developed over two hundred years ago. That is why, more and more children are struggling to adapt and learn in the mainstream schools especially gifted and special needs children.
At IOLC Homeschool, we will be utilizing a different approach in educating children. We know that children learn best when they want to learn. That’s why IOLC Homeschool has a combination of thematic, life skill, fun and therapeutic approach, designed to appeal to children’s interests and help them to learn more about the world around them.
In each theme we focus on a totally different subject. Themed units help children to see how subjects are both independent and interdependent. This enables them to see the big picture of their learning, make connections across different subjects, and talk about a topic from multiple perspectives.
When teachers use activities that make learning engaging and fun, students are more willing to participate and take risks. Having fun while learning also helps students retain information better because the process is enjoyable and memorable.
Therapy program will be embedded into daily lesson in order to make learning easy and applicable
We believe in teaching the essential life skills such as managing personal financial, social interaction and independent daily skills which they will be able to utilize in the future.
