Super-Intensives for kids!

I am teaming up with Kathy Sean-Jones and Phoebe Macrae to create ABM Northwest, a collective of experienced Portland ABM Practitioners that offer Super-Intensives for children with special needs. 

These three day intensives include 9 NeuroMovement sessions for your child (3 per day), plus three parent education segments (1 per day) to maximize your child's benefit.

Email me at joanna@neurobodyworks.com to register. Our upcoming Super-Intensive dates are:

  • September 27-29    (2 spots left!)
  • October 25-27
  • November 8-10

 

New Location!

NeuroBodyWorks has moved to 2301 NW Thurman Street. We are in the same NW neighborhood, actually closer to shops and restaurants, but our new location has a client parking lot. We are very excited to relieve the stress of looking for a spot in a crowded neighborhood. We are now located on Thurman at NW 23rd, close to the freeway entrance, and steps away from the French bakery. 

During your appointment, you are welcome to park in any spot labeled "Executive Office Suite Customers." Looking forward to seeing you soon in our new office.

 

Variation rules!

Researchers at Johns Hopkins are discovering what Anat and Moshe realized long ago; that variation is a key to learning. They even noted that the variation has to be very close to what you're already doing, just like Anat calls, "differentiating around the edges." In the end, they even recognize the "strong implications for rehabilitation," something we already make great use of.

What we found is if you practice a slightly modified version of a task you want to master, you actually learn more and faster than if you just keep practicing the exact same thing multiple times in a row.

Next Group Class Series

I have had many inquiries regarding my next Group Class Series. I am planning the next one for Summer 2016, though the dates and location are still TBD. While the last space was cozy, I am looking into a more suitable space. Let me know if you'd like to be added to my email newsletter list, so you can be informed when the Group Class Series is scheduled.

Thanks!
