Astronaut Training – A Sound Activated Vestibular-Visual Protocol
January 13, 2019 - January 14, 2019| $400
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.
Who Should Attend:
Occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists, physical therapists, educators, human services professionals, and other medical professionals. Graduating students or graduate students of the aforementioned fields are also welcome.
Participants will receive a certification in the Astronaut Training Protocol. This course provides participants with the necessary background information to immediately begin incorporating Astronaut Training into their programs.
Registration includes the handbook, Astronaut Training: A Sound Activated Vestibular-Visual Protocol for Moving, Looking and Listening and its companion CD (S&H fees may apply^).
Take an additional discount of $20 per participant for groups of 3 or more individuals enrolling simultaneously.
