Ollwyn Moran

Expert in Neurological Development in Children
Ollwyn is a 39 year old busy single mum of two wonderful boys, Alex (aged 7) and Matthew (aged 9). As well as being a mum, Ollwyn has a Masters in Education and works as a Neurological Developmental Therapist (brain development). She also lectures in Trinity College Dublin and for Hibernia College.
Ollwyn trained as a Neurological Developmental Therapist 14 years ago through INPP in Chester, UK and has been working with children and adults with learning and behavioural difficulties since then. She is a firm believer that the general rise in mild learning difficulties noted by the Dept. of Education is linked to the fact that there is an increase in non-crawlers.
Crawling is such an important stage of development that it is not OK for it to be missed. Ollwyn believes that modern floor coverings are a causal factor. Wood, tile and laminate floors are better for the respiratory system; however they offer no traction for little ones. They slip, slibe, bump and bruise themselves – many little ones then give up trying.
Ollwyn is so passionate about crawling and passing on this information to parents that she developed the Crawl Suits - empowering parents to help their little ones crawl safely and successfully.
