Parent Training Conference Objectives

Participant Goals

  1. Learn to use an assessment tool to comprehensively evaluate your child’s abilities across all areas of development: visual, auditory, motor, sensory, cognitive, and social/emotional
  2. Learn to apply the assessment tool to build a practical plan to improve areas, prioritize those most in need, and maximize the effectiveness of treatment packages
  3. Learn how to consistently apply the tool to monitor progress and response to therapy over time
  4. Measure how, and to what degree, implemented treatments are affecting the your child’s progress

Main Conference Topics

1. Neuroplasticity and Neurogenesis

  • Understanding the variety of common mechanisms that contribute to brain function (and dysfunction), growth, and development
  • Understanding the connection between deficits in motor, sensory, visual, auditory, language, cognitive, and emotional/social pathways and treatments that promote neurogenesis in those areas

2. Physiology and Biology

  • Understanding how nutritional and developmental systems-based approaches—including restorative sleep, adequate oxygenation, reduction of toxic exposures, and proper alimentation—lay a foundation for the recovering brain

3. Understanding an individual’s abilities and development using a comprehensive assessment tool

  • Learn to use a novel, comprehensive tool for assessing and individual’s neurological age relative to chronological age

4. Principles of integrating neurologically, physiologically, and developmentally sensitive treatment approaches

  • Learn the primary components of an intensive brain rehabilitation program
  • Learn developmentally appropriate physiological, sensory, motor, and cognitive treatments and that lead to improved neurological function
  • Learn overarching principles of brain rehabilitation that apply to patients diagnosed with any condition that may lead to the brain not functioning at its optimal level (e.g., dyslexia, ADHD, autism, Panda, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, epilepsy, etc.)
5. Applying family-centered, evidence-informed, and neuroplasticity approaches to treat brain-injured children
