This course is designed to help the learner understand the importance of integrating primitive reflexes and the impact a non-integrated reflex has on neurodevelopment. Integrated reflexes anchor emotion and behavioral regulation, improve concentration, muscle tone, motor coordination and cognitive pathways for learning. RMT explores techniques to assess and integrate primary motor reflex patterns using brain-building movements for help with concerns related to: ADD/ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Anxiety, Speech, Learning and Developmental Delays, Social, Emotional, Sensory, Behavioral and Motor Challenges.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Provide a school culture that supports children who learn differently, need sensory support, or struggle keeping up with their peers 
  • Teach self regulation techniques through various sensory motor activities in order to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system with the goal of decreasing stress and anxiety and giving students the appropriate sensory input to facilitate improved motor output and learning.
  • Integrate essential developmental skills with academic curricula;
  • Learn techniques to improve student's overall coordination, motor planning skills, body awareness, and visual tracking skills.
  • Integrate essential developmental skills with academic curricula;
  • Understand and explain how movement and developmental skills impact academic success;
  • Integrate occupational and physical therapy theory and techniques where appropriate into S’cool Moves routines 

Attachment: Strategies and Solutions for Therapists, Educators and Program Administrative Personnel Taught by Miriam Manela, OTR, in Private Practice, International Speaker ** NEW ** APPROVED FOR SOCIAL WORK CREDITS BY NEW YORK STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT FOR LMSWs & LCSWs

  • Tuesday, March 6, 2018
  • 8:30 AM- 4:00  PM
  • Location: 1721 Avenue J, Brooklyn, New York
  • 6 contact hours - 6 NBCOT PDUs,/.6 CEU's 
  • 7.2 Contact Hours for Physical Therapists in NY

This is a one day, 2-module workshop that is specifically designed to help therapists and educators. Participants will gain key tenets where if implemented correctly will enrich their educational career experience. 


Module 1 - Provides proven enhancements towards the development of a constructive relationship with each client in their care.


Upon completing the workshop, participants will take with them effective, practical tools and sensory strategies to incorporate into the daily setting, so they can do what they do best—Treat!  


Module 2 - Provides proven strategies and interventions that therapists and educators will be able to use in order to maintain consistent rules and regulation within the classroom to predict and manage problematic behaviors and attitudes that are faced daily.  


The learning objectives will be infused with real-life case studies in an effort to further the practicality of the course. 


Both modules will provide a unique and in depth understanding of the critical facets of behavioral and social-emotional challenges that will provide participants with the appropriate tools for understanding the reasons behind specific behaviors and attitudes. After participants understand the source of the problem, they will then be taught how to tailor their approach towards the specific issue they are encountering. These unique approaches will positively affect changes in attitude, behavior, and academic performance of the students. The result will not only provide for a smooth running classroom and therapy sessions but also will mitigate and often eliminate the problem. Participants will learn the relationship between *Anxious Attachment and *Avoidant Attachment and strategies to overcome behavioral and social-emotional challenges

Executive Functioning Training: Learn it Today, Use it Tomorrow! Practical, Cutting Edge Interventions for Improving Executive Function Skills in Students. Taught by Sarah R. Ward, M.S., CCC/SLP ** NEW ** APPROVED FOR SOCIAL WORK CREDITS BY NEW YORK STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT FOR LMSWs & LCSWs

  • Wednesday, May 9, 2018
  • 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Location: Az Yashir Center: 1301 East 18th Street, Brooklyn, NY (Q-train, B9 & B49)
  • 6 contact hours - 6 NBCOT PDUs/.6 CEU's
  • Approved for .6 ASHA  CEUs (Intermediate level, Professional area)

This is a practical strategies seminar you don't want to miss!  

° First you will learn how to clearly define what the executive function skills are for the purpose of determining the most effective treatment interventions.  

° Understand the development of the executive function skills and what is meant by the term “executive dysfunction”.  

° You will learn dozens of functional, ready-to-use strategies for teaching students how to develop the executive function skills.  

° Teach students to develop a “memory for the future”, to devise plans to achieve their goal, to use self talk, to self-initiate, to transition to the next task of higher priority and to control their impulses and emotions to successfully complete a task.  

° Improve a student’s awareness skills so that he/she can “read a room” then “stop, think and create” an appropriate action plan and infer possible outcomes. 

° Teach students to see and sense the passage of time, accurately estimate how long tasks will take, change or maintain their pace, and carry out routines and tasks within allotted time frames. 

° Learn methods to improve a student’s ability to cognitively shift and to be flexible in processing and accessing information. 

° Learn how to use the Get Ready * Do* Done Model to turn the core curriculum and lesson/treatment plans into powerful tools to teach students executive control skills.

° Fresh approaches to help students develop automaticity for class routines and transitions.  


To successfully execute, children need to be aware of task demands and set goals. Then they must access forethought and hindsight to think in an organized way and to sustain their focus on the relevant features of the task at hand. As students mature they learn how to organize their time, space, materials and develop the reasoning skills to consider multiple possible solutions to problems, recognize the "gray" in situations, and manage both expected and unexpected changes in plans, routines, rules and novel situations. Students must fluidly shift between changing task demands and carry out multiple complex steps to achieve expected goals.     


Self-regulation is essential for task execution and involves: 1) any action that allows students to stop and direct themselves, 2) how this action results in a change in their behavior, and 3) how this behavior changes the likelihood of goal attainment. Termed mimetic ideational information processing(MIME), individuals mentally ‘mime the idea’ and do a ‘dry run’ of their impending actions to simulate possible future scenarios. In effect, it is mental ‘trial and error.’
