Early $225.00* | Regular $250.00

This six-hour course is geared for school-based therapists who support students’ learning potential and success. The topics to be covered include identifying retained primitive reflexes that are correlated with delays in vision skills needed for academic success. Participants will learn what primitive reflexes are, the signs and symptoms of abnormal primitive reflex activity, and the role primitive reflexes play in developing the vision skills used by students. Following the course, participants will understand how abnormal reflex activity interferes with visual performance in the classroom. Specific therapeutic interventions/activities will be highlighted. These interventions/activities can help students mature the neurological foundations needed to decrease abnormal reflex activity and improve basic functional vision skills used in the classroom. Students whose education is supported by these therapeutic interventions will benefit from spending less time coping with abnormal reflex activity so they can spend more time enjoying educational success.
