Training for groups – Scheduled by schools, daycare centers, assisted living centers, service centers for disabled, local officials etc.
Includes an onsite visit and general lecture on the topic. The training also includes presentation of basic SeMoCo (sensory-motor-cognitive)- exercises. Participants are instructed in the implementation of basic SeMoCo exercises and activities.
At the second, more advanced training, staff can be taught how to do an evaluation themselves and create individualized exercises and activities programs.
The content and brevity of the lectures and trainings can be tailored to suit the needs of each location.
Family Consultations – Families are seen either at a resource center or at the child’s normal environment (home, daycare, school etc).The consultation starts by mapping the child’s background and the present family situation. During the visit we both observe and interact with the child. Based on the information obtained an individualized SeMoCo training program is designed for the child. It will be implemented with games, play, or as a pleasant massage for the child. The program is implemented 5 days a week. This repetition during the course of the day usually results in permanent learning by changing the structure and function of the nervous system.
During the initial period, telephone and email consultations are provided. A follow up visit to review the progress and to do program modifications is scheduled after four to eight months.
The families are also given practical ideas to make their daily living go smoother. Parents are provided direct support and assistance in finding other support persons if necessary.
