As therapists, when we treat the causes and symptoms of motor delays, we can utilize alternate brain pathways to improve the effects of therapy.
Through neuroplasticity, we have the power to make this happen! It acts as an adaptive mechanism to compensate for lost connection allowing us to maximize remaining function!
From congenital abnormalities (Downs Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Angelman Syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome and more….) to traumatic brain injuries, this course delivers new and exciting ideas on how to detour around damage and incorporate viable nervous system connections.
Dr. Karen Pryor, PT, DPT, will teach you:
How therapy can change the brain and how neuroplasticity will improve motor skills in a child’s development
Creative and evidenced-based approaches to incorporate into a multisensory learning experience
The importance of diverse and novel activities during treatment sessions
The link between primitive reflexes and development
How to evaluate the influence of primitive reflexes and effects on the
CNS developmental stages relating to motor function
