Brain and Sensory Foundations - On Line Workshop
Learn rhythmic and reflex integration movements that help children focus, learn, reduce anxiety, control impulses and develop emotional and physical maturity. With specific movement patterns, derived from womb life and early infancy, we calm the nervous system and develop effective brain and sensory pathways. The brain grows at the fastest rate in infancy largely because of these infant movements. We can use these movements at any age to support optimal learning and development.
Appropriate for parents, therapists, OTs, PTs, special educators, social workers and caregivers.
What parents and professionals are saying about the Online Brain and Sensory Foundations class:
"I wanted to share with you how amazing this year in school has been for my 14 year old son. We have been pretty consistent with the movement exercises and some integration of specific reflexes. He has taken such a leap forward I am totally convinced that the movements played a big part in it. He is doing well in almost all of his subjects and it has become so much easier for him. Thank you so much."

"My son has responded very well to the rhythmic movements and even reminds me to do them. We have already seen improvement [after 4 weeks] in his being less distracted and less prone to over-reaction. He is beginning to be more calm over all. He seems to be having more moments of rational thinking before immediate over-reaction. My husband has noticed this too."
