Movement Based Learning – Developmental Building Block Activities
Details: A one-day workshop in techniques that support the integration of the nervous system. Have you ever worked with a child (or teen, or adult) whose nervous system seems overly reactive, overwhelmed by sensory input? These Building Block activities support people of any age in developing a stronger internal sense of pattern and structure so that external input can be more easily received and responded to. Perfect for those with developmental challenges, sensory integration issues, ADD/ADHD, brain injury, and more. No prerequisite – anyone may attend. Cecilia Koester created this workshop from the activities she teaches in her BG170 course. Katy Held is authorized by her as a provider for this workshop. Counts as 8 hours toward BG instructor re-licensure.
Note – No prerequisite – Anyone may attend
