Sensory Brain Development
Sensory Brain Development is a special one-day class designed to support families, caregivers and therapists who work with special-needs children.
Together we will:
- explore the rhythms of full-term embryological development and learn about the critical processes that occur during the first eight weeks of gestation
- learn how disruptions in these early rhythms may contribute to sensory dysfunction or developmental delays
- learn about the autonomic processes already patterning the “neurosignature” of the baby
- consider the “roots” of plagiocephaly and torticollis
- create neurophysiologically relevant intervention strategies for the 0-3 population, as well as older children
- experience autonomic self-regulation techniques for ourselves
- play with simple, seated autonomic regulation techniques for others
- describe the development of the ectoderm into the brain tube, including the importance of the crest cell layer
- identify skeletal, vascular and visceral development from their respective embryological origins
- identify three common circumstances of fetal and post-natal dysregulation
- assess, plan and implement an appropriate therapeutic intervention to support neurosensory reorganization and improve function.
