Neuroplasticity for Children


Studies show our brains can be rewired to enhance new learning. In some cases, it acts as an adaptive mechanism to compensate for lost function or maximize remaining function in the event of brain injury. As therapists, when we treat the causes and symptoms of these motor delays, we can utilize alternate brain pathways to improve the effects of therapy. Neuroplasticity changes brain connections and hence, changes motor and cognitive functions. From congenital abnormalities to traumatic brain injuries, this course delivers new and exciting ideas on how to
detour around damage and incorporate viable nervous system connections.
Learn how therapy can change the brain and how neuroplasticity can change the challenges in a child’s development. With Dr. Karen Pryor as your guide, you gain creative and evidence-based approaches to incorporate into a multisensory experience to drive home the importance of diverse and novel activities during treatment sessions. Both high and low tones are discussed in depth. Video case studies will demonstrate changes before and after integrative neuroplasticity treatments. The therapy techniques learned in this one-day course can be easily integrated into the clinic or home the next day.
