    Trauma In The Body

    4 Oct - 4 Oct 2018 @ Wyndham Virginia Beach Oceanfront

    Kim Barthel OTR, Shelley Mannell PT

    This workshop will provide a brief introduction to the connections between emotional trauma and the body by highlighting known biological connections that impact neurology, soft tissue, immune system and endocrine processes. Assessment of posture and movement as affected by trauma will be introduced with intervention options through sensorimotor play, and hands-on experiences will be a focus of the session.

  • Dynamic Core for Kids Goes To School

    Dynamic Core for Kids Goes To School

    26 Oct - 26 Oct 2018 @ Rackers Centre

    There are many issues that underlie a child’s readiness to learn. Teaching staff face many challenges in the classroom (and parents at home) with posture, attention, difficulty sitting still, impulse control, clumsiness and more. Physical Therapists Shelley Mannell and Julie Wiebe present down-to-earth, practical explanations and tools for teachers and staff to help children optimize their physical, emotional and sensory foundation to support their learning.

  • Dynamic Core for Kids Part 1: Treating Core Stability in Children with Challenges

    Dynamic Core for Kids Part 1: Treating Core Stability in Children with Challenges

    27 Oct - 28 Oct 2018 @ Rackers Centre

    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.

  • Introduction to Neuro-Developmental Treatment

    Introduction to Neuro-Developmental Treatment

    30 May - 1 Jun 2019 @ Child Development Centre of Prince George and District

    This 3-day course utilizes a hands-on problem solving model. Typical motor development is presented within a systems perspective with the focus of study highlighting how musculoskeletal alignment contributes to the development of upper extremity function, oral motor function, phonation and functional mobility. The systems framework also assists when examining atypical development of children with motor challenges and how these challenges impact alignment, self-regulation and motor control.
