38-40 minutes from Yonkers, NY
Each participant will be receiving,
balls, bean bags and vision tools to use right away!
This course will explore the importance of coordinated movements, self-regulation and object manipulation for brain-body integration using movement/balance, sandbags and balls. These are used in childhood games and even into adult life with professional baseball, tennis, football, etc. Games are won based on skills, precision, balance, and timing, along with behavioral factors such as focus, cooperation, planning, and responding (feedforward and feedback). Sensory processing principles related to vestibular, proprioceptive, auditory and visual processing will be integrated with popular programs - Bal-A-Vis-X® (balance, auditory, visual eXercises), Brain Gym® and Infinity® Concepts, yoga and reflex integration programs. These programs have had a great influence in my work with children and adults who have an array of physical and cognitive challenges in a variety of settings.
Participants will leave this course with a bundle of activity ideas to use the next day at school, home or in treatment sessions with individuals or groups, from preschoolers to senior citizens.

Location: Long Island, New York
Every participant will leave with a tote bag full of posters to use right away (Value over $325)
Participants will learn how to easily incorporate therapy based movement into the classroom setting to enhance learning potential of students. Through the use of S’cool Moves poster activities student will improve motor planning, rhythm, timing, core strength, vestibular activation, hemispheric integration, and sensory-motor systems to build a solid foundation for learning. They will also improve self-regulation, reading, writing, and focus for academics achievement. Participants will also learn tiered interventions designed for whole school, small groups, and one-on-one intervention. In addition they will understand how teachers and therapists working together can achieve goals for their students faster and more enjoyably results. S’cool moves translates research into action for the benefit of all students.

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.
RMT 1 - Objectives: How rhythmic movements assist in integrating reflexes, why this it important, and how to stimulate brain connections for increased impulse control, attention, balance, coordination, stamina, and learning.
RMT 2 - Objectives: Learn effective RMT techniques for integrating developmental reflexes that are critically important for sensory integration as well as social and emotional maturity. Learn movements that release anxiety and stored emotional tension.
Ideal for OTs, PTs, LMTs, SLPs, social workers & special educators, neurodevelopmental practitioners

* Limited Space *
Hours: 8:15 AM - 3:45 PM
This presentation is designed to help participants understand the importance of sensory processing and how dysfunction can affect a child in all areas of development.
· Alex offers practical ideas using minimal equipment to create powerful sensory diets that can be readily implemented in the home or school environment. Hands-on interventions to support breath, coordination, timing, balance and strength will be presented. Modifications, adaptations and grading of activities will be addressed to support best possible outcomes.
· Ideas for better engagement of the child will be addressed as well as discussion of ways to facilitate ‘play’ for a stronger therapist-child relationship.
· This dynamic workshop will support participants through hands-on learning as they experience the activities in their own bodies. Lastly, Alex will provide tools for therapists to create their own equipment (DIY equipment) at a minimal cost.
