Building Blocks for Sensory Integration – Minneapolis

April 25 - April 26

| $495

This course has been cancelled.

Please stay tuned for future course offering dates.

Therapy Ball Trio

Included with course

This two-day, experiential course provides therapists with an in-depth understanding of the developmental and neurophysiological links between sensory integration and the basic primary movement patterns that provide the foundation (or building blocks) for sensory modulation and integration. Beginning with support of the primitive reflexes, we will explore the development of posture and its relationship to gross and fine motor skills along with visual and auditory function. Hands-on demonstrations, movement labs, and video examples will highlight treatment strategies that can be implemented with and without therapy equipment, making them appropriate for all clinical settings.

Registration includes a Gertie Ball, a Power Up Ball and a Pinky Ball.

Take an additional discount of $25 per participant for groups of 3 or more individuals enrolling simultaneously under the same order. Discount applied at checkout.
