I had the pleasure and honor of speaking to an amazing group of parents and therapists, organized by Lisa Rudley, about my work, including Brain Gym and reflex integration. I felt so blessed to share what I've learned to these open minded and very caring parents. I also had the pleasure of presenting with a veteran practitioner of the Tomatis Method, Valerie DeJean, owner of the Spectrum Center in Tuxedo, NY.
It's funny how lives converge and diverge in unexpected ways. It turned out that I had met Valerie years ago, when I was an OT in Maryland and she had a Spectrum Center in Bethesda, Maryland. She presented on the Tomatis Method and how it impacts the development of the sense of self, and what was interesting was that I feel very strongly that the reflex integration work as well as the brain gym all works to enhance a better sense of self and greater independence in the kids.
Ponderings along this path of searching for greater ease and joy in life.
