In this course, we focus on integrating reflexes with tools from a wide variety of neurodevelopmental movement methods. We learn simple movements that give children the foundation for learning, emotional maturity, speech, language, social skills, physical strength and upright posture. The movements are ideal for teens and adults as well.

This training course is excellent for OTs, OTAs, PTs, PTAs, SLPs, vision therapists, educators, parents, health care providers, social workers, mental health, addiction and family counselors, yoga therapists, caregivers and anyone interested in neurodevelopmental movements for optional functioning. This course is introductory and does not require pre-requisites or special training to attend.

Questions about the course can be emailed to Sonia Story, throughout the length of the course.
