Description

Our brains can be rewired to enhance new learning. In some cases, the brain acts as an adaptive mechanism to compensate for lost function or maximize remaining function in the event of brain injury.

As therapists, when we treat the causes and symptoms of these motor delays, we can utilize alternate brain pathways to improve the effects of therapy. Neuroplasticity treatment advances motor and cognitive functions in the brain.

This course delivers new and exciting ideas on how to detour around damage and incorporate viable nervous system connections, from congenital abnormalities to traumatic brain injuries. You’ll learn how to use therapy approaches that can change the brain in the areas of reaction timing, motor control, language, and sensory development and how neuroplasticity can positively affect challenges some children have such as poor auditory processing, hinders in reflex integration, delayed developmental milestone achievement, poor language development, and more!

In this recording, you will gain creative and evidence-based approaches to incorporate into a multisensory experience and drive home the importance of diverse and novel activities during treatment sessions. Video case studies will demonstrate changes before and after integrative neuroplasticity treatments. The therapy techniques learned in this one-day course can be easily integrated into the clinic or home as early as the next day!
