I am excited to offer E-gift cards to help make NeuroMovement® possible for you and/or your loved ones!
I am feeling excited about this new beginning and ready to welcome whatever 2019 will bring. I sincerely hope that your year has gotten off to a dynamic start!
Are you ready to commit to a year of NeuroMovement®? Here are some ways to get NeuroMovement® on the books.
Let's do this!
Book your spot in all of the Three for Three intensives by January 18, 2019 and receive FOUR NeuroMovement® lessons for YOU (mom/dad/grandparent/caregiver).
Hello NeuroMovement® Friends!
2019 is gearing up to be a great one for new learning. We are structuring our year so that our families can plan ahead and get the best outcomes for students. This includes a simplified, yet potent new offering scheduled 4 times per year.
With the Essentials, the brain becomes a brilliant problem solver, leading to breakthroughs in movement abilities, pain relief, and peak performance.
The blog post Please Stop Punishing Kids for Their Invisible Disabilities highlights an important concept in the NeuroMovement® world. As an ABM professional I meet my clients where they are at. Whether it is a child with with ASD, a teen with Cerebral Palsy , or an adult who has had a stroke. We always start with what is possible for that person.
I begin by connecting to that individual on the table in front of me. I must let go of my own expectations of what I think they "need" and any desires to "fix" them. Instead, I join their nervous system exactly where they are, and using my understanding of brain plasticity principles, I help facilitate learning so that they are able to create new neural pathways and movement/thinking/feeling patterns.
It's not about me.
Here I'm working with a group of parents at our most recent Super Intensive that is hosted by the collaborative I am lucky enough to be a part of: ABM Northwest.
What I offer:
Hi Folks! Many of you lovely parents/grandparents/caregivers bring your amazing children to see me at my office or book lessons when I travel to Eugene or Newport.
Have you thought about how I might meet YOUR needs lately?
Here's what I offer:
1) Individual lessons: Come lay on my table and feel the powerful changes your nervous system can create!
2) Group lessons: Want to roll around on the floor? I can lead a small group in movement lessons where you can discover another avenue into power of creating neural pathways
3) Workshop: Have a NeuroMovement topic you want covered? Want to connect with other NeuroMovement families? I would love to host a "NeuroMovement 101" course.
Click on Contact Kathy to inquire about a service you would like. I am excited to plan my 2019 parent support opportunities and adult lessons. Hope to see you soon!
Of course I am still working with your amazing children and hope to see them on my table sometime soon! I highly recommend booking a Super Intensive with ABM Northwest too!
Besides the arguments/research/statistics listed in the article warning of the safety concerns surrounding infant walkers, I would like to add a NeuroMovement® perspective.
Please let them be!
Everyone learns to walk in his/her own unique way. We humans are a dynamic unbalance system (big, heavy head - small feet) which, evolutionarily speaking, gives us advantage over the tiger in the jungle chasing us. But, that is another story...
When you consider all the brain power it takes to learn how to balance ourselves in standing and then propel ourselves forward/backward/sideways/etc... it's truly amazing how we figure it all out! Have you ever thought about HOW we, in fact, figure it all out? Well, it all comes back to the brain, and movement. We stumble, we fall, we reach, we look, we desire, we watch.... we learn. Our brain needs massive amounts of information in order to put all the pieces together into the outcome of walking. Our brain also needs time to accumulate the massive amounts of information needed for walking. When artificial "help" is added, it diminishes the rich experience of figuring out how to stack your spine in order to balance in standing or move on your feet. Conversely, when allowed to explore freely this dynamic process of walking, we can create the neural pathways needed to walk in our own efficient, optimal way.
Consider a photograph. The more pixels, the sharper the image. Well, it's like that with the brain. The more connections (information) the more optimal/efficient the outcome (in this case standing or walking).
If we want well organized, confident, independent walkers.
Please let them:
When a child has special needs, this concept is the same! We all need new information to learn how to do anything. ABM lessons facilitate learning through the 9 Essentials of NeuroMovement® thus, creating ways to help our brains perceive differences and allowing the formation of the neural connections needed for desired outcomes. It's a brain thing!
I'm lining up my last few trips of 2018!
MoveAbilites will be headed to Eugene and Newport before the year ends. Please consider taking advantage of NeuroMovement® coming to you, or the possibility of having a NeuroMovement® getaway.
The Benefits of Travel
In my years of being a traveling ABM practitioner, I have found it to be quite rewarding for a number of reasons.
