Learn how to support your child's behaviours using
brain care, not behaviour management.
"The behaviours are never really the problem.
The behaviours are the result of the problem, which is why behaviour management just isn’t cutting it.
Understanding our child’s brain, how it works and how to care for it is the ONLY way to make real behavioural change. ”
- Allison Davies
Brains=Behaviours will be open again for enrolment early in 2019!

Alli's work has filled a gap in the Professional Learning landscape that, previously, I didn’t even know existed… and has THE POTENTIAL TO TURN CLASSROOM PRACTICE ON IT'S HEAD.
Implementing Alli's advice has brought a sense of fun back to our work, INSPIRING HOPE AND PASSION that had worn away over time.
Originally I signed up to learn about my daughter's brain and how to help with her brain care. But what I learnt about my own brain - MIND BLOWING!!
BRAIN CARE IS NOW A PRIORITY in our house, and boy oh boy are we noticing a difference. Do yourself a favour ... sign up for Alli's eCourse!
Week 1 - Basic brain functioning. You'll learn what level of functioning to expect from a child's brain and what goes on in there to create overwhelm, overload, anxiety, hyperactivity and so much more. By the end of week 1 you'll understand EXACTLY why the brain, not your child, is responsible for all of their behaviours.
Week 2 - Predictability. In week 2 you'll learn about the brain's very favourite thing - predictability! Find out why predictability is so important, what happens in the brain when it can predict and how
to create more predictability even in the most chaotic of environments.
Week 3 - "What on EARTH were they thinking?!?"
How many times have you thought this very thought about your children? Well the truth is, they may not have been thinking at all, and in week 3 you'll find out exactly why.
Week 4 - Childhood anger. Anger in children is rarely an anger management issue, but more often an anxiety management issue. Childhood anger and anxiety will no longer be a mystery after this week and you'll come away knowing exactly how to support your child through their anger.
Week 5 - Hyperactivity.
In week 5 you'll learn all about hyperactivity. What it is, why it happens and how to reduce your child's hyperactivity without ever having to focus on it's related behaviours. This week is a game changer!
Week 6 - Sensory Overload, Part One.
By the end of this week you'll know the sensory systems and sensory overload inside out. This is the perhaps the most important information we'll cover in the entire course - and you'll be gobsmacked by how much you learn about yourself this week!
Week 7 - Sensory Overload, Part Two.
Our second week focusing on sensory overload will leave you knowing exactly how to manage it. From reducing sensory stimulus, to fidget tools, to creating a sensory kit, you'll come away knowing exactly how to move forward with reducing sensory overload from your lives.
Week 8 - Meltdown Management. A complex and involved topic (and so worthy of it’s own course!). You'll come away from this topic with a firm plan on how to move forward with managing meltdowns. And the Number One rule for meltdown management is "it’s not about the meltdown."
Week 9 - Communication. Talking uses up a lot of energy, requires a lot of processing and this can make it very difficult, especially for children. This week we’ll look at alternative ways you can help your child to communicate and express themselves to avoid pent up emotions and anxiety.
Week 10 - Integration. We'll recap, refresh and make plans to integrate everything we’ve learnt into simple and sustainable lifestyle changes. We'll look at discussing your new strategies with your child’s teacher, how to go about receiving extra therapeutic help for your child if needed and keeping your mind frame in check so that your new knowledge becomes your new lifestyle!
Author and Parenting Resilience Expert
“I am always on the lookout for wise people who can connect and communicate in common sense ways with today’s parents and those who work with children. These experts need to be able to make sense of many of the challenges that can happen in homes and in centres, and to then offer practical solutions that work.
Allison is one of my favourites who does this, she helps us all to make better choices and take better care of our precious brains in her unique, entertaining way.”
Brains = Behaviours will be filled with bonus interviews
- from nutrition and the brain, to the importance of child’s play, and so much more.
