The Child Centre Method

The Child Centre Method® is a Learning and Behaviour Improvement Program for Children. The Child Centre Method (CCM) is a result of years of research and experience from Dr. Alweena Awan. CCM brings together a combination of complimentary therapy modalities to support children’s learning, behaviour and emotional challenges in a unique way. Most conversations about children’s behaviour and emotional challenges return to the fundamental question, what is the underlying reason, motivation or cause? Dr. Awan’s evidenced based and researched Program highlights retained reflexes as an underlying point of stress on an individual’s system and provides a systematic Program to resolve stressors and integrate the reflexes, returning the individual to a state of balance and equilibrium.

The Child Centre Method ® is a “systematic integrated program that allows the practitioner to firstly identify the individual challenges that each client faces and secondly create a unique program for that individual”.

Retained Primitive Reflexes are the keys to understanding children’s learning and behaviour issues and are at the heart of The Child Centre Method.

The Child Centre Method can help with the following:


  • Anxiety

  • Auditory processing problems

  • Behavioural problems

  • Disorganisation

  • Dyslexia

  • Dyspraxia

  • Handwriting problems

  • Hyperactivity

  • Learning problems

  • Low self-esteem

  • Sleep problems

  • Stress related problems

  • Clumsiness/poor co-ordination

When a Primitive Reflex has been integrated the changes in child behaviour are always noticeable.
As a result the child will be;

  • Calmer, happier child

  • Emotionally more stable

  • Better coordination and physical literacy

  • Have improved spelling, writing and reading

  • More energy

  • Ability to focus and pay attention
