Astronaut Training – A Sound Activated Vestibular-Visual Protocol

August 19, 2016 - August 20, 2016

| $400.00
Astronaut Training Book

Book included with course

Without clear information coming from the vestibular system, sights and sounds in the environment do not make sense – they are only isolated pieces of information disconnected from each other and from the meaningful whole. It is integration of sensory information that holds the key for finding meaning in the world. This two-day course will explore the connections of the vestibular-visual-auditory triad and their subsequent impact on function. Additionally, this course will provide participants with a precise template for intervention strategies, including administration of Astronaut Training. Registration includes the handbook, Astronaut Training: A Sound Activated Vestibular-Visual Protocol for Moving, Looking and Listening and its companion CD.




Day 1: Friday, August 19, 2016, 9:00am – 5:05pm CDT
Day 2: Saturday, August 20, 2016, 9:00am – 5:05pm CDT
Full Agenda
