The Advance Centre for the Scotson Technique
We can assist with neurologically based conditions whether mild, moderate or severe. For example a disability caused by a delay in development, brain damage, brain injury or brain abnormality. If your child hasn't been diagnosed yet you may want help with symptoms such as: stiff or floppy legs, arms or hands. delayed ability to sit up straight, poor speech development, poor eyesight development or poor digestion.
Here at Advance we believe that parents, their families and caregivers need autonomy to make the best decision for their child’s intervention and lifestyle choices. We therefore let them make up their own minds about the efficacy of making the choice of The Scotson Technique (TST) for their own child.
Cerebral Palsy Information
Developing abilities in children and adults with cerebral palsy are reduced by the effect of both the brain injury and the motor disability on the child’s developing respiratory system. The result is abnormal breathing which affects cerebral blood circulation, posture, physical structure, motor function speech, vision, digestion, chewing and swallowing, general health and capacity and so on.

Brain Injury Information
Whether a brain injury occurs before during or after birth the potential for recovery relies on the quality of the cerebral metabolism to provide compensatory brain growth. However, all brain injuries weaken the respiratory muscles causing abnormalities in the respiratory system which adversely affect cerebral blood flow and nerve input to the brain creating long-term disability.
The abnormal development and control of breathing is a major much neglected feature of autism and appears to be a causal factor behind the wide spread of associated symptoms such as anxious behaviour, problems with the gastro intestinal tract, immune problems, abnormal sleep, abnormal movement and lack of speech. Abnormal breathing also directly affects the cerebral metabolism blocking the brain's well recognised restorative capacities. Read more here.
