Understanding, Identifying, Assessing, and Strengthening Cognitive Abilities for All Ages and Abilities through a Multi-Disciplinary Approach

Learn how to access your learner’s strengths and challenges. Understand how and when to integrate exercise, nutrition, vision therapy, sound therapy, neurodevelopmental/movement therapy, vestibular therapy, and cognitive therapy. You will learn different exercises to use in each area to improve learning. A holistic approach is the most effective method to strength and create neuropathways in the brain. The visual, auditory, and vestibular systems must be receiving and processing the information quickly and accurately. The information then goes to the brain where working memory is needed to think about the information, use it, and send to long-term memory. It is also crucial to
visualize letters, numbers, and objects for reading/spelling, math, and comprehension. Critical thinking, visual-spatial and perceptual reasoning needs to be strong as well.
