3 Day Course
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.
Two choice dates, Two choice locations!
Each participant will be receiving a tote bag full of s'cool moves posters to start using the very next day!
· 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
The focus of this course is to learn effective treatment strategies that are designed to help individuals with sensory processing disorders (SPD) lead full and productive lives. This intensive conference will provide clinicians with dynamic assessment and state of the art intervention strategies that support integration of sensation. Review of the current neurobiology and research related to the vestibular system intercommunication with sub cortical and cortical pathways for arousal, self-regulation, reflex integration, posture, spatial-temporal perception, bilateral integration and sequencing. Intervention methods are intended to:
1) Apply sensory modulation concepts in evaluation and treatment as the foundation for rhythm and routines.
2) Discuss the basic principals of vestibular processing related to posture, self-regulation, arousal, perception, ocular and auditory processing and timing and sequencing skills.
3) Utilize assessment strategies for detection of reflexes, ocular motility, vestibular functioning, rhythm and sequencing.
4) Implement effective intervention strategies using rhythms, routines, sensory modulation, vestibular-occular-auditory triad and spatial-temporal synchronicity techniques.

This workshop will be EXTREMELY hands on. "Why "EYE" Can't Read" is a course developed with therapy in mind. This course will address the visual system and how visual deficits affect a students ability to read, stay on task, attend and comprehend. An appreciation for the role the visual system plays in seeming 'disorders' will be discovered.
At the Conclusion of this class, the participant shall be able to:
This is a one day, 2-module workshop that is specifically designed to help therapists and educators.
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.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Participants will be able to:
1. Describe sensory integration and sensory modulation and the role they play in learning, behavior, and development.
2. Understand the importance of vestibular, proprioceptive and tactile integration as it relates to postural development, balance and physical development.
3. Participate in and generate ideas and activities that support sensory development
4. List sensory motor interventions that children can readily take back into the classroom
5. Create effective sensory diets using minimal equipment that can be implemented in school and home environments.
6. Develop creative opportunities to facilitate agility, motor control, balance and upper/lower extremity coordination through play.
7. Identify ways to grade activities up/down to facilitate progress.
This class provides the science behind the learning process and offers reasons and practical, drug-free solutions for hyperactivity, dyslexia, autism and other learning and behavioral difficulties.
Course will cover:
This seminar is designed to help therapists develop a comprehensive understanding of vision and how vision can impact on the therapy process in children. A three-component model of vision will be reviewed stressing the importance of optical, visual efficiency and visual information processing disorders. Screening procedures that allow therapists to test for the most common vision problems will be presented. Treatment options will be discussed at length including both compensatory strategies and rehabilitative techniques (vision therapy). Case studies will be used throughout the presentation.
Course will also cover
· Neuroscience Foundations in SPD
· Learn to Move, Move to Learn Curriculum
· Adaptations for Early Intervention
· Therapeutic Tools
· Group Lap Experience
Learn new and many fun ideas to engage with the children while still achieving your goals
All participants will receive Jenny's book Learn to Move, Move to Learn
Experience an exciting and fun new course by Jenny L. Clark, teaching therapists innovative ideas on how to integrate health and wellness strategies into the daily lives of youth struggling with childhood disorders that impact emotional regulation, attention span, problem solving skills, social interactions, and physical health.
This course identifies a decrease in physical activity as a key problem in children with sensory processing disorder (SPD), attention deficit disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and nature-deficit disorder. Therapists will learn characteristics of ‘Nature-Deficit Disorder’ and will glean an understanding about why lack of movement contributes to physical, emotional, and behavioral challenges in children with childhood disorders. Therapists are introduced to a variety of wellness strategies focusing on meaningful occupations, including outdoor activities in nature, healthy eating, yoga, deep breathing, and mindfulness activities.
In this course therapists will learn about the evidence-based therapeutic value of yoga for youth. Yoga addresses a wide spectrum of a child’s developmental needs, from emotional regulation and attention span to motor planning and coordination. Individual yoga poses are selected for discussion of sensory and musculoskeletal benefits. Therapists learn the qualities of yoga as an effective approach to help children overcome deficits so that they can experience quality of life through meaningful and joyful activity.
These pediatric health and wellness strategies and interventions include activities that parents, teachers, and therapists can implement in a variety of settings, and help children develop many important skills that can be applied to daily life experiences. Video examples and lab experiences will enrich participants’ learning.
Three day workshop of techniques and tools that help children achieve calm, focus and self-regulation.
This series offers proven strategies and tools that can be implemented immediately to expand your treatment program for each child by decreasing stress responses. You can expect to broaden your understanding of the role of
The common behavioral disruptions that will be addressed include:
You have to know exactly how you feel in order to control it!!
Interoception is an important sensory system that helps us to feel internal body signals like a full bladder, growling stomach, tense muscles or speeding heart.
