Neurological Development

  • Latest research on neurological differences associated with:
    • Motor skills, sensory processing, language development, self-regulation and learning
  • Hindrances to typical brain development
  • Structural brain differences and neurochemistry in common diagnoses and symptoms
  • A bottoms-up model for brain-based intervention
  • Video labs and hands-on brain models

Assessment of Neurological Functioning

  • SPD vs ADHD
  • Sensory vs behavior
  • Behavior disorders
  • Standardized assessment tools
  • Behavior analysis
  • Easily accessible checklists and questionnaires

Build a Strong Neurological Foundation

  • Sensory-motor activities to build strong neural connections between key brain regions
  • Strengthen the insular cortex to improve emotional awareness
  • Strategies to stimulate the vagal nerve to power up the parasympathetic nervous system
  • Integrate primitive reflexes to enhance posture, motor control, and emotional responses
  • Case Study: 16-year-old boy with HFA, SPD and EF challenges
  • Lab: 1) Acupoint tapping; 2) Vagal stimulation activity

Using Neuroplasticity to Repair/Rebuild Affected Brain Structures

  • Restore balance between the frontal cortex and the amygdala to decrease sensory sensitivities, anxiety and aggression
  • Auditory stimulation to facilitate a calm and focused state
  • Yoga and mindfulness strategies to reduce an overactive fight-or-flight response
  • Proprioceptive, vestibular and tactile input to regulate emotional responses, reduce self-stimming, self-injury and anxiety
  • Lab: 1) Joint compressions 2) Rhythmic movements

Neurochemistry’s Impact on Behavior, Emotions, Motor Skills and Learning

  • Primary role of major neurotransmitters
  • Signs and symptoms of neurotransmitter imbalance
  • Correlation between neurotransmitters, sensory processing and emotions
  • Evidence-based strategies for neurotransmitter deficits/excesses
  • Case Study: 12-year-old girl, trauma history, extreme tactile sensitivities, atypical social behaviors
  • Lab: Change your own neurochemistry now!

Targeting Higher Level Brain Centers

  • CBT to identify triggers and manage emotions
  • Behavior mapping to improve self-awareness
  • Social stories and video modeling to target mirror neurons and teach appropriate responses
  • Programs to improve social skills and manage physiological response to conflict and stress
  • Token economy to address self-regulation
  • Case Study: 6-year-old boy, off-task and fidgety behaviors
  • Lab: 1) binaural beats to impact brain waves 2) Mindfulness activity to balance neurotransmitters

The Role of Medication

  • Perspectives on medication
  • Commonly prescribed medications for childhood diagnoses
  • Supplements to consider
  • Case Study: 11-year-old boy, difficulty with attention, differentiating symptoms of ADHD vs. SPD

Brain Health

  • Nutrients for neurotransmitter production
  • Sleep hygiene
  • Nature
  • Physical Health
  • Use of electronics and video games
  • Case Study: 21-year-old with autism, severe sleep disorder, obesity

Clinical Considerations

  • Goal-writing
  • Data-tracking
  • Limitations of research and potential risks
