This workshop was planned to occur live in South Africa. Due to Covid19, this workshop is now live online and anyone is welcome to join.
When: Tuesday, March 23, 2021 from 9:00am to 5:00pm, South Africa time zone (Tuesday, March 23, 2021 from 3:00am to 11:00am US EST [New York time])
Description: This one-day workshop will discuss the integration of major primitive reflexes as it relates to strengthening the foundation of sensori-motor skill in order to develop the skilled practice of praxis. Maude takes principles from several sources of training, describes the impact of the reflexes and demonstrates through video how to assess the ones she has identified as important for her work at her center. Maude focuses on the application of clinical judgement and how to use these reflex patterns as a way to measure progress in sensori-motor skill. The impact of these reflexes in activities of everyday life, as well as on academics, and social functioning will be discussed. Maude’s practical view of application does not over focus on “success”, but rather creates a balanced view of its impact on occupational functioning. The workshop will cover integration, assessment and intervention and how these reflexes fits in the world of sensory integration – a “must-have” workshop for anyone interested in child development.
We have applied for CPD points in South Africa.
