#7306 Pediatric Brain Part 1: Neurobiology of the Sensory-Motor Systems and their Application to Treatment.


This course will teach clinicians about the neurobiology of the different regions of the brain and how the function/dysfunction within each region applies to the evaluation of, and creative treatment planning for your pediatric client. Therapists will learn the role neurotransmitters play in regulation, attention, play, and function. They will receive a thorough review of the developing brain in utero, and the function of the sub-cortical (brain stem, cerebellum, basal ganglia, and thalamus) and cortical (cerebral cortex including insula) areas of the brain. Treatment activities are discussed to strengthen the individual regions within the brain and support a whole-brain connection to the body for improved body awareness and sensory-motor development. Many ideas for play-based activities are provided to add to the therapist's toolbox. When we understand how the brain works, we can determine why behaviors and deficits exist, and ultimately create endless treatment activities to support our pediatric client.


This course has been modified from the original 14-hour Pediatric Brain Course taught for the past 15 years. It can be viewed individually and will also work well as a series with Parts 2 and 3, as well as in conjunction with the Primitive Reflex Integration Course.  Course instruction methods include lecture, demonstration, videos, case studies and question/answers. (Intermediate Level)
