Making Every Movement Count: Transforming the lives of Children with Special Needs
Infants with special needs generate less variety of movement than typical babies, which limits their opportunities to learn to balance the weight of the head and pelvis in space or develop mature hip joints. This puts many children with cerebral palsy at risk tosublux or dislocate their hips as they grow. Carla’s workshop is a MUST for FPTP trainees and practitioners who work with children. You will experience ATM® lessons that clarify the foundations of motor development, self-perception, and cognitive learning, and learn to guide parents to synchronize their interactions, toy choices, and adaptive seating and standing devices with the themes of their lessons.
With a background of almost 50 years as a pediatric Physical Therapist, Carla Oswald Reed practices as a certified Feldenkrais® Practitioner and Anat Baniel Method of NeuroMovement Practitioner and Trainer. She has studied with Magda Gerber of Resources for Infant Educarers and with the Bobaths for the NeuroDevelopmental Treatment approach for cerebral palsy. Carla is mother to 4 and grandmother to 7.
