Therapies for Children
The Key Clinic is renowned for the work we do unlocking children’s potential. You may have a child who is not ‘firing on all cylinders’ or one who appears to have to work much harder than should be necessary to achieve the results they do.
Some children under-perform at school relative to their intelligence or feel particularly stressed by schoolwork. Others may have been given a label, such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD or ASD.
Children vary enormously in terms of their neurological development. Some children simply have nervous systems which are still relatively immature for their age, making them unable to process all the information fed to them in class. This has absolutely nothing to do with how smart they may or may not be.
Retained “primitive reflexes’ act as physical blocks within the nervous system, preventing children from realising their full potential. They can mess up eye tracking, spatial awareness, coordination etc. Retained reflexes are easily rectified through one of our neurodevelopmental exercise programmes.
We also know that many children who underperform at school have hearing distortions. Regular hearing tests only test for ‘deafness’, they do not assess ‘how’ a child hears language. Hearing distortions lead to speech/language problems, difficulty reading, spelling and processing any auditory information. A pattern of hypersensitive hearing can also lead to distractibility. All these difficulties can be tackled effectively through our Key Auditory Therapy.
For highly distractible children, who struggle to sit still and concentrate, the underlying cause may have more to do with biochemistry. The same is true for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties such as anxiety, hyperactivity, mood swings, and depression. These symptoms are often caused by underlying biochemical imbalances, which we can treat using epigenetically targeted supplements, avoiding the need for medications.
Importantly, none of these problems need to be a ‘life-sentence’. It is possible to rewire the brain, rebalance the biochemistry, and retune the senses so that your child can truly realise their full potential.
Following Assessment, one or more of the following therapies may be recommended:
A fully customised Auditory Programme, which can be accessed at home, designed to fine-tune the hearing and improve auditory processing within 10 days. Directly supervised by a GMC Licenced medical Doctor and HCPC Licenced OT.
We specialise in treating the underlying biochemical imbalances commonly seen in mental disorders, using highly targeted supplements. As with all our programmes, all our work is closely supervised and regulated by Walsh Institute trained GMC registered medical doctors.
Key Neurodevelopmental Therapy
A targeted neurodevelopmental exercise programme designed to mature the nervous system, by inhibiting retained reflexes which frequently block potential. Directly supervised by a GMC Licenced medical Doctor and HCPC Licenced OT.

The Key Clinic has helped my 2 dyslexic sons tremendously. Particularly the one with ADHD and sleep issues. I would recommend starting with the clinic before any other therapies or extra coaching for children who are struggling in any way. My only regret is that we hadn’t discovered the clinic sooner.
