Some people have asked us why we’re called Bounse
We weren’t getting anywhere coming up with names that described what we do, so we started to think about things in an abstract and conceptual way. In our experience, trying to find a way forward with listening, learning, development and getting along with others can be a bit like being in a pinball machine.
Some things help us, and some things don’t, some things take us forward and some are dead end’s, there are distractions, wrong turns and holes to fall in to – but in order to progress we must each find and discover our own unique pathway forward. Also, what worked for one person doesn’t necessarily work for other people and vice versa. For parents and caregivers, trying to search for answers and ways to help and also people that can help – it can also feel a bit like being in a pin ball machine. It is from this notion, that the concept of Bounse came from… To us Bounse is about overcoming obstacles in a logical and systematic way that is individualised and therefore still remains flexible and adaptable. Along the way, we believe, we must each also learn and develop self-awareness, independence, confidence, resilience, humility, empathy and a passion for life. Each of us, no matter how young or old we are, needs a reason to get up in the morning. We approach the challenges children, young people and adults face from a communications perspective. We believe that the key to conquering listening, learning, development and getting along with others is getting the ‘right’ information in, processing information in the ‘right’ way and then getting the ‘right’ information out, in the ‘right’ way.
Some people have also asked us why we can’t spell Bounce?
Firstly, before we explain anything else it is deliberate… And yes, we sincerely apologise to all the educators and others out there that are upset by the way we’ve spelt Bounce! There is a perfectly logical explanation which we’re more than happy to provide when we talk either over the phone or face to face.
But for now – Please forgive us…
The red, yellow and green dots in our logo are what is called an ellipsis.
An ellipsis is informally known as dot-dot-dot and is used to signify an omission or the fact something is missing. The red, yellow and green are significant in that they represent the process we go through to find where there is an obstruction i.e. in the auditory processing system, then the progression through neuroplasticity to unlock things and allow information to flow.
The b in our name also looks a little like a d… if you look closely at the right angle.
