The evolution of the human being from an infant to an upright, alternating adult is a complicated and multifaceted, sequential, unstable, patterned process, requiring stages, challenges, and self-actualization for optimization.
From infants learning to roll, to toddlers walking behind a push toy, to a competent upright human walking down the stairs backwards (yes, backwards), we presented a 10-component, cumulative Postural Restoration Developmental Sensory Motor Sequence supported by 9 carefully chosen and explained Sensory Integration Principles that support attention to 7 Postural Restoration Developmental Processes. Incorporation of sensory awareness of these processes into the treatment of human beings, fortifies the sensorimotor outcomes that every parent, clinician, and human hopes to experience.
In front of an engaged audience of 7 in-person and a whopping 60 faces on the live stream, comprised of 17 PRC’s and 3 PRT’s, PT’s, ATC’s, personal trainers, massage therapists, an osteopath, an acupuncturist, a health coach, a yoga instructor, lots of familiar faces as well as welcomed new ones, from 9 different countries (Taiwan, Germany, Singapore, Ireland, Japan, France, Poland, Canada, and China), Ron Hruska and I presented the second offering of the Human Evolution course and the first live stream. We enjoyed the enlightening discussions fueled by insightful questions from the audience and I think it’s fair to say we ALL came away from the weekend with a little more to think about in our attempt to better understand the complexities of the developing human being.
‘Understanding how underlying developmental processing of information contributes to the development of sensory motor sequencing and the ‘sense of self’, will enable the caregiver to optimize the use of movement instabilities, without developing overdependence on the respiration or primitive adaptive motor ‘patterning’ for stability’ at any age.
Personally, I’d like to sincerely thank Ron Hruska for his gracious mentoring and for trusting me to deliver this complex and valuable information. (I could go on and on…) Further, Jen Platt was instrumental in assisting with content organization, publication, and is a technological whiz for ensuring we were on the same page, slide, and that the almost 100 videos came through clearly. RJ and Hannah were spectacular from behind the scenes and nothing short of enthusiastically supportive! THANK YOU!
Thanks to all of the attendees for your attention, contributions, thoughts, smiles and ‘thumbs up’ from zoom land. It sure was an honor, a timely opportunity and a very fulfilling experience to be with you all!
Until we meet or meet again….
