The Waldon Approach is a unique method that was developed by the pediatric neurologist Geoffrey Walden to help children with various learning difficulties. It offers an effective tool to engage and motivate the children and it is especially powerful, if introduced early on whilst the child is still young and it becomes part of their regular routine and their way of learning. 

The focus is on developing the learning to learn skills

  • being effortful
  • staying focused
  • sustaining interest in activities

Children with a range of learning difficulties, including autism, often get stuck at earlier stages of development and they do not develop the skills for learning. This intervention helps to re-engage the children and build their skills for learning.

The children learn by doing, to be physically active and using their hands, based on how typically developing children learn. The approach builds the foundation for thinking that is laid down in the first years of life and encourages learners to become self-motivated and independent.
