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.
Every participant will leave with a tote bag full of posters to use right away!
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.
· Ideal for OTs, PTs, LMTs, SLPs, social workers & special educators, neurodevelopmental practitioners

APRIL 1 2019 - THIS IS A PRACTICAL SRATEGIES 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.
APRIL 2, 2019 MASTERY CLASS - ADVANCED!! (must have taken on of Sarah's previous classes in order to take the mastery class)
1 day course 6 contact hours

Instructor: Sarah Ward, SLP, CCC
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 Fear Paralysis (FPR), Moro reflexes, and associated reflexes to develop a sense of safety so that the child can learn to be grounded, confident, and secure.
