Exercise not only strengthens the body but enhances the brain as well. Research continually demonstrates the importance of movement regarding cognitive skills. As therapists working in pediatric settings, we have the ability to impact these skills through the use of purposeful, fun and creative therapy sessions.
This workshop will present innovative ways to integrate movement with learning while concentrating on developmental and functional concepts. Applying this approach to neuroanatomy, we will identify structures that can be impacted during our treatment sessions, resulting in more enriched activities. We will explore sensory and motor systems from primitive reflexes to executive functioning while discussing their impact on focusing, memory and overall learning. Using evidenced based research, brain breaks, videos, group discussions, and break-out sessions, therapists will acquire a unique and “moving” way to utilize these tools the very next day.
- Correlate the relationship between neuromotor development and learning
- Recognize the impact of whole brain integration activities on learning
- Identify the four phases of motor development
- Choose a treatment session utilizing the concepts of neuroplasticity and sensorimotor development
- Enhance a current treatment plan utilizing an educational perspective, using the case study provided
This course is designed for PTs, OTs and SLPs working in the areas of pediatrics, neurology, early
intervention and school based practice.
