The Importance of Innate Infant Movements for Neurodevelopmental Challenges
  • Bio
  • Abstract
  • Credits
  • Learning Objectives

Sonia Story developed the Brain and Sensory Foundations training to provide in-depth, comprehensive training in the use of innate rhythmic and infant primitive and postural reflex movements for addressing sensory, learning, physical, behavioral, emotional, social, and speech challenges. Sonia trained directly with Harald Blomberg, MD and Moira Dempsey, among many other mentors. Her training courses are approved for professional continuing education for occupational therapists, physical therapists, and massage therapists.

Sonia was a presenter at the 2018 Autism One conference on how innate neurodevelopmental movements help with sensory issues. Her work has been featured in the book, Almost Autism: Recovering Children from Sensory Processing Disorder, and in the books Special Ed Mom Survival Guide; Family Health Revolution; and Same Journey, Different Paths, Stories of Auditory Processing Disorder.

Sonia is currently enrolled in Master's program in Movement Science.

1. Delegates will be able to list at least 3 reasons why the innate infant movements are important to development.

2. Delegates will be able to describe evidence showing the connection of disrupted infant movements with neurodevelopmental challenges.

3. Delegates will be able to describe the results of using innate infant movements later in life to overcome learning challenges and other neurodevelopmental issues.

Abstract:

In this engaging presentation we discuss the important role of innate infant movements in human development and what can happen when these innate movements are disrupted. We answer the question: Are neurodevelopmental challenges associated with disruption of innate infant movements in early life? And we explore the evidence for using these innate infant movements later in life to overcome learning and other neurodevelopmental challenges.

She is a longtime member of psychologist Allan Schore’s interpersonal neurobiology study group.

1. Describe how self-regulation and self-discipline are different.

2. List the components of self-regulation, according to Allan Schore’s Regulation Theory.

3. Explain three ways to facilitate self-regulation in daily interactions with infants and toddlers.

Abstract:

How a child is cared for in the earliest months and years of life, pre-birth to three or so, can foster the implicit development of what will be seen as self-discipline in the preschool years and later. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to connect the dots between respectful, attuned caregiving, self-initiated activity, authentic communication and the development of self-regulation, the necessary precursor to healthy self-discipline.

We will explore the basics of Dr. Allan Schore’s Regulation Theory, which integrates Bowlby’s classical Attachment Theory and modern interpersonal neurobiology, as well as practical ways to put it into practice in the home or anywhere infants and young children are being cared for. The Educaring Approach, which will be referred to, offers replicable strategies and tools for building the secure relationships that form the basis for children to develop into to peaceful, cooperative and confident people who exhibit the benefits of self-discipline.

1. Explain the neurology of the olfactory system.

2. Describe how the olfactory system impacts feeding, relationship and safety outcomes.

3. Describe ways to support feeding and co-regulation using olfactory strategies.

USA Gretchen Becker Crabb, MSE, LPC, OTR/L, CLC, IMH-E
Abstract:

Though so obvious, the sense of smell is quite integral to well-being and human connection. As the loss of smell has been highlighted as one of the main symptoms of COVID, it invites a deeper understanding of the functional impacts of olfactory differences in children and caregivers. In this presentation, we will learn about the cultural history and neurological basis of olfaction. We will explore how smell plays a role in feeding, interpersonal relationships, and safety as well as olfactory strategies to promote physical health and co-regulation.

IMPORTANT: In this presentation we will do experiential work, so please have a journal, the following scents and food available:

One Citrus Scent (e.g. lemon, lime, orange)
One Woodsy/Earthy Scent (e.g. leaves, rocks, soil)
One article of clothing worn by someone you are close to (e.g. spouse, child, close friend, parent)
Carrot or other raw vegetable to eat

The Neglect of Neglect: Its Tragic Consequences

Graham Music is a psychotherapist, trainer, manager and thought leader. He is a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist at the Tavistock Centre where he has worked for over 20 years, and has been adult Psychotherapist for over 30 years. Formerly Associate Clinical Director of the Tavistock Clinic’s Child and Family Department, he has developed many innovative programs, including setting up services in over 40 schools and a range of services working with the aftermath of child maltreatment and neglect. His clinical specialty for decades been understanding and working with trauma.

1. Explain how neglect is very different from overt trauma.

2. Describe how being with people who are numbed can be challenging to professionals as we too can feel dulled down.

3. Explain how we can work to 'respark' and enliven people when they are in such states.

Abstract:

There is a group of children who pose a very particular challenge to professionals. These are children who have lacked the kind of early empathic and attuned interactions that most children have, the experiences that give rise to empathy and genuine interest in other people and in life itself. These might be children who come from backgrounds of extreme neglect, but we see something similar in avoidant attachment, in learned helplessness, and also in some responses to trauma, such as dissociation. Neglected children have expectations of relationships which are very dulled down, even desolate, and they barely show interest in relating emotionally. The talk suggests that there is a spectrum of neglect, from the most severe experiences of terrible institutional homes to children who had very emotionally absent parents, maybe due to severe parental depression, or very avoidant cut-off attachment styles. It will tease out the different challenges of working with such states.

Becoming Parents: Preparing Parents for the Journey of a Lifetime
Australia Elly Taylor, DIP, Arts

With over 25 years’ experience as a relationship counsellor, parents’ group facilitator, mental health educator, partner and mum, Elly Taylor has become an internationally known parenthood preparation and perinatal relationship expert and the award-winning author of Becoming Us. Elly’s passion is preparing parents for a happy and healthy family—at any stage in their parenthood journey, and especially in a challenging world. Her Becoming Us approach includes fathers and partners in all aspects of pregnancy, birth and beyond, harnesses the attachment bond between couples to stabilise them through the life changes and challenges of parenthood and links both parents into community services to support the mental, emotional and relational wellbeing of the whole family.

Elly has served as an advisor for numerous university research projects and her ground-breaking Becoming Us developmental framework has now become a comprehensive multi-disciplinary education and professional training and courses for parents. In a full circle moment, Elly recently trained midwives, allied health and therapy professionals in her local community and now Becoming Us Nest Building Sessions are preparing expectant parents in the hospitals where her children were born. Elly lives in Sydney, Australia with her firefighter husband, their three kidults and an abundance of pets.

1. Describe three common myths regarding the transition to parenthood.

2. List four of the psychosocial stages of pregnancy and early parenthood.

3. Explain three ways to include fathers and partners in perinatal preparation and postpartum support.

Australia Elly Taylor, DIP, Arts
Abstract:

The “transition” into parenthood is culturally a time of great joy, excitement and celebration. But our “Bon Voyage” attitude to parenthood appears to be setting families up to fail. Research tells us new parents are struggling: currently 1 in 3 mothers and 1 in 5 fathers suffer from anxiety or depression during the perinatal period. Added to this, a whopping 92% of couples report increased conflict and 67% a decline in relationship satisfaction in the first few years of family. So, what’s going on here? Is there a better way? And what can perinatal professionals do about it?

In this presentation, we’ll first bust some unhelpful myths of parenthood. Next, participants will learn that while parents may expect having a baby is the destination, it’s just the beginning. Parenthood is like travelling deeper and deeper into foreign territory: every new stage has it’s own surprises, joys, challenges and unexpected rewards. And the journey never ends.

We’ll explore ways to prepare parents for the stages of early parenthood (even long after their baby has joined them) in ways that support the mental, emotional and relationship wellbeing of mothers, fathers and parents, so their whole family can thrive.

Abstract:

Play is an important milestone for babies and toddlers as it helps with development and reasoning skills. Play also holds a crucial role in providing a safe, caring, and protective attachment relationship between caregiver and child. Through pretend play, caregivers can help children express thoughts and emotions. Emotions are responses to different stimuli and children can learn appropriate ways to work through their emotions. Through storytelling caregivers can help children identify emotions without labeling emotions as “good” or “bad.” Caregivers who engage children in reading and storytelling promote brain development and imagination, develop language and emotions, and strengthen relationships. Learn more about the importance of play, the stages of development and how play works before language and memory are developed and examples of activities that encourage imaginative play.
