About this Course

Course Description

MNRI™. Vojta Method. RMTI™. Bobath Method.

You’ve taken courses that teach reflex integration methods. You have a good grasp of at least one or two methods, if not more.  You know the sensory systems and have heard that reflexes effect neurochemical development.  

But no one ever taught you how to figure out which method to use for which child with which issues.

That’s one of the goals of our Reflex Integration course. You’ll come out with a comprehensive overview of six different reflex integration methods - and you’ll know which presenting issues each method is the most relevant to treat.

***

Connecting the Dots© on Reflex Integration, Sensory Integration and Neurochemical Development, Part 1 is a course jam-packed with information and practical takeaways. This interactive course gives you a practical real-life toolbox through a hands-on all-day lab, before and after videos demonstrating actual client progress, detailed handouts and more.

Clarity. Understanding. Direct applications.

If you ever felt puzzled about the best way to treat a young client with reflex integration issues, this is the course for you.

Due to interest and limited space, the second day laboratory is only open to licensed OTs, COTAs, PTs, PTAs and SLPs. Important: you must be able to be in the same physical space as at least one other participant in order to participate in the second day lab. 

***

Connecting the Dots© on Reflex Integration, Part 1 is focused on evaluation and assessment. Part 2 is focused on treatment, and will be open only to those who have taken Part 1.
