As clinicians treating individuals with central nervous system dysfunction, such as cerebral palsy, congenital hypotonia and other multi-system impairments, we can make advances in our clinical decision making skills by establishing hypotheses regarding the critical impairments that we observe in our assessments and be more precise in our treatment sessions. This 2-day, hands-on lab intensive seminar is designed to further enhance the ability to treat children with CNS dysfunction. We will briefly review the current Neuro-Developmental Treatment Approach principles and rationales that support our treatment planning and the strategies used within a treatment session. Development of your handling skills will be emphasized as a way to influence multi-system and single system impairments related to the clients' functional outcomes. Development of specific handling skills related to in-effective posture and movement behaviors observed in the neurologically challenged child will be the primary focus of this seminar
Discussion of therapeutic intervention and the clinical decision-making process will be discussed. A combination of didactic, video examples, laboratory learning experiences and patient demonstration will ensure the integration of NDT as a foundation for intervention.
RMT 1 Focus, Organization & Comprehension
RMT 2 for Emotions, Memory & Behavior
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.

This Master Class is for the professional who wants to learn more strategies and techniques, have advanced treatment examples, and become more knowledgeable of the scope and sequence to implement executive function strategies. This seminar will get you thinking in new ways about how to utilize the 360 Thinking Program interventions, will help you to understand where to start, what goals to set for your client, and give you the opportunity to make and practice implementing a Toolbox of Strategies for teaching executive function skills. We will address at an advanced level how to teach students to channel their motivation and go from Intention to Action by creating and carrying out plans and to sustain forethought for task planning across hourly and extended time horizons. Learn systematic ways to develop a student’s situational intelligence and self regulation to stop, observe and read a room, orient to the expectation in a moment in time, decide a course of action and then act within allotted time frames. Understand the relationship between speed of processing and executive function and learn practical strategies to improve written expression, abstract thinking/problem solving and figurative language skills.

Vision and visual processing are essential to the development of the
children we work with. This requires professionals to optimize vision (what the eyes see) and visual processing skills (how we use what we see). This 3-hour workshop will examine vision and visual processing, covering basic techniques for identifying visual processing problems in children, providing practical strategies for optimizing visual processing, and presenting fun therapeutic activities that build essential skills.
