NEUROLOGICAL ASSESSMENTS AND PHYSIOLOGICAL EXPLANATIONS
This 5-day workshop redefines how kinesiology approaches learning difficulties and optimal functioning. It deepens and simplifies our work with clients by making use of neurophysiological assessments developed in neurology, behavioural optometry and psychological research. Attending this workshop will help you to understand, assess and treat neurological and functional problems. The workshop focuses on functional assessments and corrections. It includes a review of the CNS including Social nervous System and impact this has on Function and learning.
Importantly NAPE covers more than 60 neurophysiological assessments in three key areas:
- Visual system with main emphasis on reading
- Neurological stability and function with main emphasis on Balance and movement.
- Cranial Nerve Assessment including all Cranial Nerves
Cranial Nerve assessment is covered within the NAPE workshop to detect deficits in our sensory system including Smell, taste, sensation, and vision, hearing and vestibular. This often can be useful when working with complex Injuries. Many Cranial Nerve assessments act as RED flags, which would give confidence to the practitioner to recommend the client to a Neurologist.
Visual system and our ability to read require many functions to be processed fluently with almost perfect synchrony in an integrated manner. The workshops teach you how to do assessments to better understand why someone struggles to read. The NAPE workshop includes over 20 assessments to increase our ability to understand, activate and balance this complex system.
Neurological stability assessments include 40 neurological assessments that cover all basic brain functions such as balance, movement, sensory cortex analysis and basic cognitive functions.
What will I be able to do?
- Assess and target what areas/functions are problematic.
- Format (via activation) quickly and simply using tasks instead of points.
- Monitor progress.
- Communicate and refer more appropriately with other professionals.
- Improve results by focussing on the function that is problematic rather than only on specific brain areas.
- Learning Difficulties
- Complex Injury problems
- Looking at understanding the Brain through assessments
A minimum of 100 hours kinesiology training
