    Research studies have shown that a child's propensity to learn is much greater, early in their development.

    As a result, children enrolled in this therapy (at an early age) tend to have better results than those who begin later.

    As we age we form habits, behaviors and learn patterns that may need adjustment.

    If there is any difficulty to suppress and let go of incorrect habits, behaviors and / or patterns, this may hinder and delay progress.
