• Dynamic Core for Kids Part One: Treating Core Stability in Children with Challenges

    21 Sep - 22 Sep 2019 @ Hampton Inn and Suites

    Therapists document challenges with core stability in the majority of children who are experiencing motor challenges, regardless of diagnosis: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Cerebral Palsy (CP), Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD), hypotonia, etc.  Join us for an exciting 2-day course that integrates current theory and practice in pediatric treatment with a systems approach that is anchored in a neuromuscular model of core recruitment, using breathing as an access point for all children. Practical application of the information will primarily address children over 2 years of age.
