Fit 2 Learn CIC is a social enterprise committed to helping people to improve their cognitive skills

Fit 2 Learn has assessed forty sub-level 4 students aged 11 years over a 2 year period at a London school. All the students were found to struggle with aspects of motor skill control, bi-lateral integration, mid-line crossing, sound processing, control of binocular vision and cognitive visual processing.

‘Overall, education in the UK needs to be underpinned by a fundamental understanding and
philosophy of whole child development, and to a quality that will ensure that all children in
mainstream schools can access all areas of the curriculum throughout their education with
relative ease and enjoyment.’
The F 2 Learn ‘study suggests that there are fundamental basic physiological developments in the first 7 years of a child’s life that have to be mastered if a child is to access good cognitive and mental health. Furthermore, those skills need to be maintained and developed throughout school life.’
