Amanda- aijairam Amanda JaijairamWorking at Brainchild Institute over the last four years has helped me evolve tremendously. There are many lessons in life to be learned, and every day I find myself learning something new at Brainchild. Dr. Light has been the greatest mentor with her wealth of knowledge. My name is Amanda Jaijairam and I am a Neuro developmental Trainer for Brainchild Institute. Since childhood I have always aspired to empower young minds. This motivated me throughout my undergraduate studies at Florida Atlantic University, where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at the end of 2016. Since then I have become certified to administer the Gibson Cognitive Test Battery and Processing and Cognitive Enhancement (PACE) program. Additionally, I have certifications in the program Seeing Stars and Visualizing Verbalizing developed by Lindamood-Bell. In the Masgutova Method (MNRI), I am certified in the following protocols: Tactile Integration, Maximizing Brain Potential, Dynamic & Postural Reflex Integration, and Visual Auditory Reflex Integration. Integrated Listening Systems is another intervention I spend my time doing with our clients. I love the variety of options we have available to offer to families who seek out services. Every child deserves to become a super hero, and I hope to give each one I work with the “super powers” they need to continue thriving along their journey. Read More
