Silke Johnson, is the Owner and CEO of the Melody Learning Center.
Silke is coaching families and supporting children with autism and other developmental or behavior difficulties to learn new skills and to recognize the beautiful melody of life.
Silke, an RBT and registered, pediatric nurse, as well as an EFT master trainer, lived for 9 years in the US, where she worked as an early developmental specialist and ABA paraprofessional. Silke moved back to Germany in 2004, where she deepened her knowledge in ABA and continued to educate herself. In 2008, she built up her Melody Learning Center. Silke provides ABA and EFT consultations to families with children with ASD all over Germany and Switzerland. Her main aim is to ensure that the safe and healthy development of children can take place in a pleasant environment, creating a positive relationship between parents and child. Individuals with autism and their families face major challenges every day. Helping them find stability in everyday life and giving them techniques to overcome crisis situations and to build heart connections means a lot to Silke. With the Melody Learning Center, she offers a unique learning environment for children with special needs.
Especially, when dealing with overwhelming emotions and everyday stresses, Silke’s additional knowledge as an EFTi-accredited master trainer, yoga therapist and holistic bodyworker positively influences her work.
Silke is continuously learning about EFT, Matrix Reimprinting, trauma therapy, ABA/VB, child psychology, and neurobiology. Currently, she is in her third year of schooling as a holistic bodyworker, and in distant learning of her MSc in ABA. Silke works under the supervision of a BCBA-D and is pursuing her BCBA certification. Other trainings include NARM (Neuro Affective Relationship Model), Trauma Therapy, Yoga and Yoga Therapy, Neuro Regulation, REVT (Relational Emotive Behavior Therapy), Matrix Birth Reimprinting, Matrix Reimprinting, ACT, IFS (Internal Family Systems), ABA/VB (Applied Behavior Analysis/Verbal Behavior).
In her free time, Silke enjoys nature with hikes, river walking, yoga, acro yoga, taking pictures, animals, especially wild birds and hinds which she can observe right outside the window of her wooden tiny house in the Black Forrest region of Southern Germany.
