What are Sensory Brain Breaks?


Differentiated learning is a framework for providing effective teaching to all students in a classroom regardless of difference in ability. If you are an educator, future teacher or even a mother then this workshop could be just the thing for you.

Differential Learning Workshop

Think!

* Are your students struggling to learn?

* Do you want to accelerate learning in your group?

* How do you improve the efficiency of students?

* Do you want to improve cognitive skills in your students?

* Do you want to keep them engaged in learning?

* Keep them “focused” and “on task”?

Learn!

Learn how to identify children who are having difficulty coordinating both sides of their bodies.

Did you know that children having such issues have problems with motor functions such as reading and writing and daily functional tasks such as dressing and tying shoes?

Brain breaks are an effective way for reforming the mental and physical state of the learners in your group, whether they are gifted, average or struggling.

Brain breaks stimulate neurological pathways and help both hemispheres of the brain work together.

So join us today with our expert, Dr. Uzma Raheem on Sensory Brain Breaks. Revive effective teaching through techniques that speed the learning process of your children or students.

Highly recommended for educators, mothers and future teachers.

2nd Annual Pediatric Screening


Project Mercy of Madinah and Hope Center are teaming up for the Second Annual Pediatric screening event to be held in Madinah on the 25th and 26th of December, 2015.

Parents and caregivers are encouraged to go to AdDaar hospital right across from Masjid Quba, and enquire about their child’s development, regardless of whether they have already been diagnosed or not. The screening is completely free of charge.

Uzma Raheem, director of Hope Center says, “Residents of Madinah, here is your chance to avail diagnostic and therapeutic consultancy for free for your child. If your child has problems in behaviour, speech, reading, writing, walking, medical or psychological, join the event at Al Daar Hospital, opposite Masjid Quba.”

 

 

 

What about the Moms?


It is all too easy to forget about the Carer, the person who is expected to keep it all together 24/7. For the first time, an event was arranged for mothers of children with special needs at the HOPE Center in April.  Moms were taken completely by surprise with the events of the day as they were pampered and indulged, and returned home feeling calmer and happier, ready to face a new day.

Between 9am-1pm, mothers were guided through a series of events which included counselling activities, group discussion and relaxation. The energy levels gradually increased over the morning, reaching a crescendo with a Zumba session. Thanks to generous sponsorship from local companies, the ladies went home with an ample goodie bag along with a sense of rejuvenation.

The schedule for the day had deliberately been kept secret so as to surprise the mothers, who came with open-minds and open hearts.

Uzma Raheem, The Center Director, said: “We hope this will be a first in a series of workshops for the parents. Our aim is to continue to provide psycho-education, boost morale and build support between the mothers.

Head of student affairs and counseling, Kim Lyon, said: “We did a pre- and post-test to see the change in the mothers’ moods.  The forms showed a significant increase in positive feelings, which was very rewarding for us.

“Every lady who attended said they would like to see more of such workshops, and we believe that these can make a big difference to their general well-being. It is exciting to be facilitating such programs here in Jeddah.”

If you were one of the moms present, we would love to hear your thoughts. Drop a quick comment to let us know. Or even if you were not there, what do you think of this initiative?

Hope Receives 3rd Grant from Boeing


Jeddah Blog was truly honoured to receive an invitation to HOPE – For Exceptional Needs’ award ceremony in February, whereby Hope was bestowed its third grant from Boeing. Having visited the HOPE Centre last in the summer of 2014, I was pleasantly surprised to note many improvements from the construction (such as the bridge between both buildings), to the facilities provided to children (for example the much-improved library and the sensory room).

The event itself was not only very well-organised, but I was struck by the politeness, helpfulness and hospitality of all of the Hope staff present. There was a great degree of attention to detail in the table settings, flower arrangements, food menu, down to the perfectly sharpened pencils and writing pads placed on each table for note-taking purposes.
