Core Connections – Exploring the Core’s Developmental Roots
August 25| usd $225
This live, online course will provide therapists with a clear description of musculoskeletal make-up of the “core” and will cover the research-based neurophysiological rationale for evaluating core development and function in individuals with sensory processing difficulties. Core function will be explored from its developmental roots in the unfolding of the primary movement patterns (innate reflex development). Two key patterns (Moro and Tonic Labyrinthine) and their connections to core development and self-regulation will be discussed. A specific play-based observation tool that identifies core movement challenges and assists in prioritizing treatment strategies will be presented and explored through movement labs. Along with assessment, a variety of hands-on treatment strategies will be demonstrated through interactive labs. Video case presentation will be used to show practical clinical applications.
